The charcoal drawing of Luna when she was a puppy was drawn from a photo of her I took outside in the snow. I remember her looking up at me and waiting patiently while I took the picture. She is a very patient and mellow dog. We got her when she was 8 or 9 weeks old from a friend of a friend whose dog had puppies. Before we went into their home to meet all of the puppies, my husband Peter said he was just going to meet the puppies and observe them to see which puppy to choose. As we were driving home with her, Peter said he knew right away Luna was "the one" because when we walked into their home, all of the other puppies were running around all over, but Luna came over and licked the snow off of his shoes.

Last year I did a painting of our other dog Oreo for my son Christopher, so I wanted to do a painting of Luna for Peter. The painting of Luna was done from a photo that Peter took of her in the backyard. He had taken quite a few photos of Luna and chose the photo that he felt best caught her personality. Sometimes Luna is shy and doesn't want to go into the yard and play with Oreo and Peter, but when she does go running down the stairs of the deck and gallops over to Peter to play... it makes his day.

This is a picture of my grand-nephew Chewie. He ran like the wind. He is missed by all.

This boy is thought to be part German Shepard and part Yellow Lab. We  think he is beautiful with his soulful eyes.

With her sweetness and patience Mischa helped raise a wonderful child…who had previously thought dogs were scary.

She was so loved that she had endless names, including:



Misch da Pisch


Mischa Mae

Pischa Mae

Da Misch

Da Pischa

Mischa Pischa Pie


Baby Misch

Belly Girl


And on and on….


Mischa is a much missed dog.

 This beautiful girl is the love of the Zeigler's life and we can see why!

Here are a couple pics of my little "girl," Goochie.  She's a 5-year-old Shih Tzu, and a tireless hiking partner.  The photos are from a recent camping trip to Holly Recreation area.

This is a photo of our beautiful Aussie, Levi. He was a rescue dog who used to take himself for walks to visit the llamas.
