I’m Bentley of Bangor. This photo was taken at Jacobsburg State Park while hiking with my mom and dad. They love to hike and take me everywhere they go.

A working dog — Wilco is the greeter at Artfully Elegant on Main St. in Bethlehem.

“I’m Wilco, Gallery Greeter. I like to greet everyone with a friendly howl and sniff. My mom, Rori, has brought me into the gallery since I was three months old so it is like a second home for me. Most people think I’m part Dalmation but I am actually a Cattle Dog, Husky, and Shepherd mix. I tend to enjoy pieces with an animal or nature theme, of course. Anything that reminds me of Vermont is also great since that is my favorite vacation spot.” This quote from Wilco was excerpted from the Artfully Elegant website, where he has a whole page to show everyone his favorite jewelry.


Dirty Harry & Bella

Dogs having fun outside on the trampoline and driving around in cars in the Lehigh Valley.
Dirty Harry and Bella have lots of fun playing on trampolines and driving around the Lehigh Valley.


As told by their mom, Kim Coleman, of Phillipsburg, NJ: “These were taken at our family cabin my grandfather built in Palmerton, PA, where we get to enjoy all that Jim Thorpe, Beltzville, and the surrounding area in the Valley have to offer. Dirty Harry, our 1.5 year old English Yellow Lab, enjoys any and all camping activities, as long as he is with the family! Here he is pictured on the cabin trampoline with my three year old son. Bella, our five-year-old Jack Russell/Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Springer Spaniel mix, is so excited to go hiking & swimming at Glen Onoko that she won’t get out of our truck!”
