Pearl: ASPCA Dog of the Year
By Cori Solomon
This framed collage honors Pearl, ASPCA Dog of the Year for 2010. Pearl was rescued from a shelter and was trained to become a search and rescue dog for victims of natural disasters. Pearl and her handler Ron Horetski were one of the teams sent to both Haiti and Japan.
After writing several articles about Pearl and more recently the canine team that she was part of in Japan, it was befitting that I created a drawing of her. The background of this collage represents the rubble that she traversed to try and find survivors of disasters as those in both Haiti and Japan.
