Pepper’s owner, Joseph Sadowski, asked me to create this piece.  He and his dog were registered volunteers in the Pet Therapy Program at the VA Medical Center in Buffalo, NY.  Shortly after Pepper died, Mr. Sadowski also passed away.  I’m sure that he’d be happy to know that Pepper’s inclusion in Art Unleashed will help generate funds for this noble cause.
