Canine influenza outbreak in southern California

Bethany Family Pet Clinic let its customers know that an outbreak of H3N2 canine influenza virus (CIV) has been diagnosed in dogs in southern California. CIV is a highly contagious respiratory infection that is transmitted through a cough or sneeze, physical contact, or contact with a contaminated item like a chew toy.

Symptoms include: coughing, loss of appetite, fever, sneezing, or discharge from the eyes or nose. Dogs are at an increased risk if they are in close contact with potentially infected dogs in kennels, groomers, and day care facilities.

A two-dose vaccine is available, and Bethany Family Pet Clinic vaccinates for two strains of CIV. Call your veterinarian if your dog develops a cough. Contact us for appointments at 503-614-9061.

Emily Stevens: Painting on Fabric/Making Gifts for the Holidays
Tuesday, December 7, 10 am-3 pm. Maximum of eight students per class. In-person, one-session class.

Explore painting on fabric that may be used for clothing, greeting cards, tote bags, aprons, tee shirts, or wall hangings. Learn the basic techniques using fabric paints and media. Go home with painted textile art samples that may be used for gift giving or other uses. All supplies will be provided by the instructor; bring designs or images you want to paint and clothing or fabric you want to paint on.

Jean Anderson: Watercolor Snow Globes
 Wednesday, December 15, 10am-noon. Maximum of eight students per class, via Zoom.

This makes for one last quick Christmas gift or just an opportunity to play with your brushes. We will do a snowman like the ones shown, learn how to make an object appear round, and a little bit of composition. I will provide different subjects and ideas to use for your own snow globes. This class is always a favorite with students. I teach techniques that allow you to paint more than just one painting. If you have some basic knowledge of watercolor technique, you should be able to follow and produce a masterpiece.

I use two cameras, giving students a good view of my painting area—another camera allows me to periodically check on what you are doing, ensuring that everyone is understanding my instruction. See the Village Gallery of Arts website for supply details.
