For their 2nd Annual BC & Alberta Guide Dogs Trivia Night Fundraiser event which was held on April 29th, 2017 in Calgary, we made this Black Lab. We used Armstrong Glass # AG – 1825S an Opal Black/Streaky which allows light to filter through this glass (most black glass allow no light penetration).
The dog measures approximately 8 inches wide by 11 inches high.
Once again the fundraiser was very successful to raise funds for the development of dogs to help kids with autism, seeing eye dogs for the blind etc. They are always looking for donations. One can also become a puppy sponsor by accessing their website.

Earlier this year we were asked if we would make a donation to the BC & Alberta Guide Dogs in support of their 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night fundraiser which raises funds for the development of guide dogs for kids and others with Autism, as well as seeing eye dogs for Blind people.
We made this stained glass dog from a free Spectrum Glass pattern which was used as a silent auction fund raising item. It measured approximately 8 inches wide by 11 inches high. We used Wissmach 145SP glass for the majority of the dog.
The 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night Fundraiser was most successful.

A stained glass panel for the memory of Shiner a long time favourite cat of Tena one of our daughters who lives in Central Alberta.
This panel measures approximately 12 inches wide by 7 inches high.
Shiner was designed from the following photograph by our good friend Vicki Stevens who is wonderful at putting pets into stained glass.

If you check out our first posting titled “Chewie” you can learn about this wonderful dog who passed away several years ago. We showed “Chewie” many times at our markets, unfortunately he fell off a table a few years ago at one of our markets and had to be completely rebuilt.
A few weeks ago we took him out to the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia and he now hangs in Rene & Laurel’s home over looking the ocean. As “Chewie” was their dog for many years they are more than pleased that he will now be with them in stained glass for years to come. Enjoy

The glory of springtime when one drives our Alberta country side and the joy of seeing a mare with a new born foal. We made this suncatcher many years ago for year round enjoyment.
