Howling Talent animal day
October 6th, 2023
I am proud to announce a new wonderful journey!
October has become a very significant month for me. It not only marks our beloved Dagger's Birthday, but Barney has been nominated for Best of Long Island in the Talented Pet Category as a Motivational Influencer. How PAWsome is that!! You can vote for Barney from October 1st until December 15th 2023. To add to the excitement, my book An Artist Is Born was released this past week. You can order the book through Amazon. Just click the photo of the cover below and it will take you to the Amazon page.❤️
In addition, I've collaborated with Anna Roy, the President of the Animal Heroes Hall Of Fame, and started our "Howling Talent" Podcast including an online Art Exhibition we've called "Pause for Talent" with October 6th named "Howling Talented Animal Day." We'e been working for months now brainstorming ideas and seeing those ideas come to fruition. All of this is somewhat overwhelming for me, but at the same time, also quite exciting. Anna has been the guiding force in our Howling Talent endeavors. Without her, I know I wouldn't have been able do it. Her expertise and knowledge in the Film and Journalist Industry is unsurmountable.
I met Anna through Dagger back in 2021, when Anna founded the Animal Heroes Hall Of Fame, she connected with me through Dagger's LinkedIn page. She liked our story and felt that Dagger met all of the criteria to be honored the Title of Animal Hero by being inducted into the Animal Heroes Hall Of Fame. When Anna contacted me, I was over the moon excited and thrilled. I always knew that Dagger was a hero, but to be inducted into the International AHHOF was mind boggling to me. Since then Anna and I have become close friends. The only thing keeping us apart is the distance. You see, Anna lives in Cyprus and I live in New York. However, the distance has not gotten in the way of our close friendship. We meet via Zoom almost every week. And, I must say...it's always the highlight of my week. Anna is full of super ideas as we share our love of our pets, and all animals focusing on their well being all of the time. When Dagger passed away suddenly this past January, Anna's compassion and love for Dagger showed through the beautiful tribute letter she sent to me. She requested it to be read at Dagger's Service of Thanksgiving. I was touched when Marie Piscione agreed to read the letter during the Service. I will treasure all of Anna and Marie's kindness and love for Dagger in my heart forever. Anna said that she wanted very much to keep Dagger's legacy Alive. And she kept her word. That's just the way Anna's is!
Here's what you can look forward to...
It all begins on Dagger's Birthday on October 6th, which we've named "Howling Talented Animal Day." The festivities will begin with an Online Art Exhibition "Pause for Talent." The exhibition will include 10 living and deceased Talented Animals throughout the world. Each has been taught in a very organic way. The animals we've chosen live in a loving home or animal habitat. If you know any talented animals who are being taught in a humane way, please let me know. We'd love to include them in a future exhibition.
Our Podcast will also be released on October 6th with an introduction from Anna and me. Anna will be interviewing me for this Podcast Show. We have some exciting guests in the coming months. So, stay tuned!!
All of this is in Honor of Dagger DogVinci whose Legacy Lives On!!
I would be remiss if I didn't take this opportunity to thank all of you for your contact support and love over the years.
Without you, I wouldn't have the courage to continue to keep
Dagger's legacy of Education and Community Service alive.
I feel so blessed and full of gratitude for all of you!
As I begin this new journey
with my little rescue Barney by my side,
I look forward to seeing all of you at my book signings!!
With a happy tale of gratitude,
