Chasing Away K9 Cancer …. Stephen Huneck making a difference


Stephen Huneck (featured extensively here) made a huge difference in the lives of many dog lovers all over the world. His kindness and dedication was always on display as he continued to lend his talents to various dog-related charities. He recently decided to do something special for the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. He made this new print which has 25% of the proceeds helping with their “Chase Away K9 Cancer” fund. The “Chase Away K9 Cancer” Special Edition Print is available as a limited edition Giclée in a series of 75, signed and numbered by Stephen.

“Chase” was a Black Lab and a dock diving champion who passed away on June 28th, 2006. Just shy of seven-years-old, this was too soon for her time as is for many others. Below is a short excerpt about Chase as told by her “Mom”, Cera Reusser.

I could tell you the longest story about the worst day of my life but that’s not how Chase should be remembered.

She left us yesterday after I took her to Sauvie Island one last time for a swim off a dock she has played on for years. It was strange: I have never seen the water in the Willamette so clear that you could see her entire body and her legs swimming away. She had a happy smile on her face and her tail was up and she enjoyed play time at the river. The cancer was getting her quicker than anyone expected so it was time for us to say good bye. My vet did a wonderful job and I held her to the end. She will never ever be forgotten and will fill our hearts forever with so many great memories.

The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine also has other Chase-themed items to support the cause. We just purchased the gorgeous ceramic treat jar, shown below. It is a real bargain at $20, which includes shipping as well. This Bone-Shaped Ceramic Treat Jar comes in white or black, and features a red bone on the lid that acts as a handle. It measures a huge 9″ long x 7 1/4″ high x 5″ wide. All proceeds will benefit the ACVIM foundation’s Animal Health Studies Grant Program.

I have a gazillion treat jars throughout the house but, what the heck, it is going to a great cause. I will probably give it away in a future drawing at the site.

Btw, I am currently in the process of having a drawing for one of Stephen Huneck’s fabulous toy chests. Valued at over $200, I am giving it away as my way of saying thanks to all the folks that support my efforts to fund cancer treatment for working dogs.

This artwork is available in the formats, sizes, framing options and dog colors below. Stephen Huneck original prints may be purchased either framed or unframed, but what could be better than a Huneck print in a Huneck frame? When Stephen was looking for frames for his Woodcuts and Giclée prints he had a hard time finding exactly what he wanted. So, being an artist and a woodworker, he designed his own frames. The frames are made right on Dog Mountain and are made from indigenous Vermont Maple and Ash, much of which is harvested there. They are assembled, sanded and finished in beautiful Maple or Black finishes. Stephen also uses archival paper for both the woodcuts and Giclée prints. They are mounted with double acid free mats and can be finished with these beautiful artistic frames. The quality of paper, ink and mats insure that these prints will be around for a long time.
