DOG AND PUP GLASS

Our little family consists of Dar and myself (the Dog) and two cats, Blackie and Little Jack.  We've always been animal lovers and  January a young starving feral cat visited...we tried to help her make it through our cold winter.  As luck would have it...she then brought the rest of her feral family to our door:(   Now we have outside and inside kitties, my heavens its so hard to turn away a hurting animal.  They are all very loving in their own way,  how their personalities differ!   The local humane society knows us well as our children have gone in to be fixed...we don't want to have a herd:

Dar's (Darlene aka Pup) work history has mainly been in the hospitality industry, since moving to North Idaho.  She worked her way into management and at that point...it was better to attempt starting our own business.  Dar's art creation experience includes Glass Fusing, Oil Painting, Pottery, Pastel Painting and Figure Drawing.  Forty years later and here we are...Coeur d'Alene artists that actually are able to survive...Dog and Pup Glass has been in business for about 16 years...although Dar has been an artist in various mediums,  over 30 years.  As you know my first name in John (aka Dog) and I have a background in electronics, aircraft instrument repair, amateur radio...extra level license,  nursing (of all things:), HVAC contractor/technician, gas pipe fitter, refrigeration technician, nationally published author and a business owner with Dar for over 40 years!  We were able to build our own glass/pottery/jewelry/fusing studio...the main equipment is very expensive if you don't have an electrical mechanical background with welding ability.  There's not anything special about owning your own business except for two things,  you get to be the CEO forward slash Janitor and golly...its a bunch of work! When I use the word golly...its being polite!
