This is N in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge
I’ve spent much of today looking at wonderful photos of Newfoundland dogs and reading about the breed. I was disappointed in that I couldn’t find a photo of them at work – or at least not a good enough photo to use for a reference of Newfies drawing a cart, or far more important, working as a SAR dog or even swimming. The Newfoundland dog is most famous as a rescuer of drowning sailors – or anyone else who has a water mishap. I’m enough of a perfectionist that I won’t work without some sort of reference, so I hope you are willing to settle for this standing Newfoundland dog, and one of the irresistible fuzzy Newfie puppies!

This is I in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge
See, I told you we’d get back to Ireland! Interestingly enough, when looking for Irish “livestock” I found only one pony breed, one horse breed (I think there are more that are likely classified as “types” rather than breeds – I’m not done with that yet!), no cat, but a good many dogs! Terriers, gun dogs and probably the best known of all – their national dog in fact – the Irish Wolfhound.
Now I’m partial to the Wolfhound myself – because if you know me, you know I love the sight hounds or gaze hounds as they are often called these days. So – no aspersions on the beautiful setters or terriers – but I’ll work them in later. Here are a couple of Irish Wolfhound coloring pages.

Jack Russell Terrier Laying Down Coloring Page
In response to a request. I know I’m behind on requests, but this one seemed important to do right away. I’ve been away from the computer quite a bit the last few weeks. For those who do not know, my husband has been severely ill and is no longer able to work. Between doctors and hospital trips, I’ve also been trying to work various jobs away from the house. He has been disabled since March and unable to work, but we are not getting any assistance (yet). If you’d like to help out there is a donation button around here somewhere – or just share Color-Your-Own.com will your friends and family, add it to your Facebook, stuff like that. It sure would be nice if I could hang out at home and draw coloring pages all day and be able to take better care of my hubby, too.

Bush Dog Coloring Page
Once again, I am proud to hear from Ian, the gentleman who teaches at an orphanage in Mexico, with a request. This time he asked for a Bush Dog Coloring Page. These amazing little creatures were once thought to be extinct, but still live in Central and South America. Tough looking little guys, aren’t they? I don’t know if I really caught it in the line art, but in the photos you can see these powerful jaw muscles that make them look like they could snap your hand off like it was nothing. Ow!

Search and rescue dog on a snowy mountain
Many people owe their lives to brave search and rescue dogs and their handlers. While doing the research for these drawings I found an amazing variety of breeds being used from German Shepards to Pit Bulls, Aussies, Golden Retrievers, Newfoundlands, and of course Bloodhounds. It was hard to decide but I finally settled for a Shepard type that could be used for many breeds or mixes, and a long haired dog that could be a Golden Retriever or other shaggy sort of breeds. The coloring pages are linked to the thumbnails or use the links below

Airport Detection Dog Coloring Page
Airport Detection Dog - Beagle
Detection dogs have become a familiar site at many airports. Some are searching for explosives or drugs, others search for other types of contraband such as certain types of fruits. Many different breeds and some mixed breeds are used from the German Shepard type dog on the left to the smaller Beagles on the right.
Here where I live in New Mexico, the German Shepard detection or sniffing dog is a familiar site at Border Patrol stops where they inspect vehicles for drugs, guns, and other contraband.

Bomb Sniffing Dog Coloring Page
[caption id="attachment_276" align="alignright" width="250" caption="Military Bomb Detection Dog Coloring Page"]
[/caption] Continuing with my theme of service dogs this week, these two new coloring pages are of the courageous bomb detection dogs that work with our military in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. Not only do they save soldiers lives by sniffing out bombs and bomb making materials, they also improve morale in the units they work with. You can read an excellent article on them here

I am so glad I did not spend $600 on Adobe InDesign to find out that you folks are not actually going to BUY my coloring books so many correspondents said I should put out. If you did actually want one, you better get it soon as I plan to let the store expire the end of the month. Live and learn. Here it is, enjoy while you can
Human Remains Detection (Cadaver) Dog Coloring Page
Human Remains Detection (Cadaver) Dog Coloring Page
Of all the wonderful and amazing ways dogs assist us poor humans, the Human Remains Detection or Cadaver Dogs have one of the most unusual and fascinating jobs. Unlike Search and Rescue dogs, Cadaver dogs are trained to track and find human remains. Dogs sense of smell is so sensitive they are able to find human remains that are hundreds of years old, buried, or even under water! You can read more and even see videos of some Cadaver dogs at work at these two sites:

You may know or remember that I originally set up Color-Your-Own.com to create line art for the players of Orbis Games, including Sandbox Farm. I am still playing over at SandboxFarm because part of the fun is being able to create new animals and add them to the game. This weekend I added several types of service dogs, such as the cadaver dogs and I will be adding corresponding coloring pages or line art to the collection at Color-Your-Own.com this week, too.
Don’t forget that after being asked by so many people to create coloring books you can download and print out I finally did – they are on sale here Of course, only one has sold since. LOL. I have to pay monthly for the shop itself, never mind the time I wasted, so if sales continue to be this bad I will soon close it and the coloring books will go into my computers recycle bin. So where are all you people who kept saying I ought to make coloring books?
Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day weekend!
