The First Two Dog Pearls

Most of you know about Coming Home and Spirit Dog, though many of you have not yet seen these lovely Dog Pearls.  Each is a poignant, comforting minute of cinematic slow motion. In either YouTube or Vimeo, please watch in HD or HQ for best clarity.

You can learn more about them here: Dog Pearls Tucker

Dog Stars + Do(g)nations = NEW Dog Pearls!

HarleyYou can help create new Dog Pearls by supporting us financially.  We have several hours of great HD footage in the bank, needing only the funding to finish new Pearls. 

Here are some of the Upcoming Pearls on our wish list, including several that celebrate the wisdom and love of dogs and encourage adoptions. 

You can help via Do(g)nations or Sponsorships or just a regular gift.  They're all good! 

Five great dogs are in the first two Pearls.  22 more have already been filmed and are eagerly waiting to become stars.

Poise in Chaos

That's my theme for this last half of 2009. 

Between two complex, challenging hand surgeries, our house sustained significant water damage in a freak storm.  We are immersed in major house renovations without the full use of my hands -- tricky!  My last hand surgery is October 14.

Though Little Pearls has been humming quietly in the background, I have not been able to do needed fundraising and our funds are very low.  We will not be sending out our annual mailing this year.
