Gadora’s Animal Prints on Young House Love…

Late last year Gadora sent a lil Burger love to John and Sherry at Young House Love, in the form of an Animal Print. Today Gadora has teamed up with the dwelling darlings for their very fabulous (and über popular) fab freebie…

I’ll handle the art work and Young House Love will handle the details of the giveaway. And for every Animal Print you order through Young House Love, $5 will be donated to the ASPCA.

M Chan loves his Nana.

Well, if this isn’t just the cutest picture EVER! Alison, Nana’s Granddaughter, sent this photo after the festivities… if you remember, Nana the birthday girl for whom M Chan’s Animal Print was ordered just celebrated her ninetieth birthday. YES, this pic is from Nana’s 90TH birthday! Isn’t she pretty?! If happiness is the key to longevity, we look forward to hearing how Nana and Gramps celebrate their first century!

“I love the tribute to M-chan 🙂 The painting turned out incredible! And I just want to say on behalf of Nana and my family, THANK YOU! It was such a great hit during the present-opening segment of the evening! I’ve attached one of the many pictures I took of Nana opening her gift. With much appreciation, Alison.” Thank you Alison for your kind words, and keeping me posted. I’m so happy to have been a teensy part of your family’s very big day.

*A keen eye will notice the frame engraved especially for the occasion, “M Chan loves Nana.” Now that’s Gadorable.


Like a million travelers, Gadora spent time in an airport vortex this holiday. On a flight home from Chicago, leafing through a SkyMall mag, I giggled at the ridiculous gadgets one might procure… some requiring more cents than sense, but I digress. The Wisdom Panel DNA testing kit reminded me that I’d not yet posted Riley’s Animal Print.


One of the best parts of these many Animal Prints is getting to know Gadora’s subjects… “Riley is a lovable mixed-breed who is a little over 1.5 years old and has a ton of personality.  If it helps, we have gotten a DNA test, and these are the results:

  • Beagle 37-74% (explains the barking/jumping/general craziness)
  • Maltese 20-36% (explains the biting/guarding/curly white hair)
  • Borzoi 10-19% (shape and size)
  • Poodle 10-19% (black hair)…”

Doesn’t take a DNA test to know Riley is one cute pooch!

Daisy and the case for Doggie Rescue…

Daisy’s Animal Print request came in from New York City. Cute Pooch. Gadora asked her adoptive Mom, Emily, for a few words…”Daisy is a rescue dog, found wandering in the rain a few years ago. We don’t know her breed, but like to think that she is made up of lots of love…” Awwww.


Here’s a close-up of her finished whiskers.

“Daisy is almost 8, but acts like she is still a puppy…”
