David Uhl 2014 Sturgis Commemorative “Bikini Bike Wash”

159

Since 2005, David has created a special piece for Sturgis every year.  He continues that tradition this year with “Bikini Bike Wash”.

This latest masterpiece is a few years in the making and features bike builder Matt Olsen and his wife Brittney.  Matt is astride his ’39 Knucklehead bobber “Dottie” (now owned by Pat Simmons and Cris Sommer-Simmons).  Bikini Bike Washes are a fixture at rally time, and the unmistakeable Black Hills backdrop stamps this as a true Sturgis scene from days gone by.

Stop by David’s full gallery at the Gold Dust Casino in Deadwood again this year during the rally (from July 31st-August 10th). David is excited to announce Kristy Swanson, David’s model for “The Huntress”, she will be joining him at the Gold Dust on Sunday August 3 and again on Monday August 4.  visit David’s site  for more info

Fireworks, Tips to help keep your pup calm

pup

Fear of thunder or fireworks is common among dogs—in fact, more dogs get loose on the Fourth of July than any other time of the year. But there is a way to help your pooch overcome his fears. Here are some tips from experts at the AKC GoodDog! Helpline:

1. Know what your dog loves. You’ll need to select a treat that he finds desirable enough that the emotional response it elicits is stronger than their fear.

2. Observe your dog and learn his particular body language so you can tell when he is beginning to stress. This is an important one: To successfully recondition a dog’s emotional response he needs to be in a state of mind where he can respond to you. Call your dog when he first shows any sign of stress—this may be as early as when the air pressure changes, long before the thunder cracks.

3. After the thunder (or whatever triggers the stress response), quickly cheer, “Oh, wow! Storm Treats!” as you give him that special something that he loves so much. The goal is for the thunder to become a predictor of something great instead of something to fear.

4. Consider getting a CD or digital recording of storm noises. This will help you start the desensitization process before that 3 a.m. storm or huge block party. Play the recording on a low volume while you present the high-value treat. You can gradually increase the volume as your dog starts associating the noises with the yummy food treats.

5. Have patience. Conditioning your dog to associate thunder or fireworks with something wonderful takes time and multiple experiences.

I personally have used the Thundershirt on a foster dog I had in my care. If you have an extreme case I highly recommend checking out this option. I was amazed with the results.
