Kathryn and HarleyThat's from a couple years ago, and it's one of our most favorite pictures!
Kathryn has a full-time job as mom to an adorable biped toddler and Harley, Flora & Juno, and as a wife to her hubby! PLUS she works at the Lehigh Valley Hospital full-time, too. (That's like a vet hospital for bipeds!) She's an incredibly talented artist - check out some of the gorgeous things she's done for us! Here are some metal masks she painted to look like us:
The girls, Dave, and ZimWe use them as curtain holders! It's fun to see if people notice!
Can you see them up there?!!?
We have other works of art by Kathryn and treasure each one! She is one VERY talented lady! She also is a wonderful volunteer for MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue, helping homeless Siberians find their fur-ever homes!
And guess what else?!? She has just launched a new blog for Haicooo: Little Poems for Children, a lovely book she and her father collaborated on! (Kathryn's "Haicooo" is what inspired Dave to start writing his Haik-woo!) In Kathryn's own words, "Haicooo are little haiku poems just for children! All haicooo poems have an accompanying drawing of a sweet animal to help develop a child's love of nature, art and poetry. It has long been my philosophy that a child who learns to love animals and treat them with kindness will be a child who shows empathy for other children as well. I also believe that they will grow into more caring and responsible adults. We can all learn a lot from animals as well as children!" That sounds like a great lesson for older bipeds, too! Our favorite Haicooo is about Frosty!
Click on the book for more information......and don't forget to check out her new blog! All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, PA. to help care for newborn babies who require special care and their families.
Kathryn, we know we've only scratched the tip of the iceberg, but for all you do - as a mom & wife, in your work at the hospital, volunteering for MaPaw, as an incredibly gifted artist, ... and so generously donating proceeds from "Haicooo" to the NICU ...... we salute you!!!
