Coloring Contest

 
Monday, February 27, 2012
 When I was 6, I was crowned Junior Art Champion by the San Francisco Chronicle. Crowned may be a stretch. My drawing of a black poodle, along with my name, age, and hometown of San Bruno, were printed in the paper under the “Junior Art Champion” headline. The paper sent a gift certificate and a grand prize check for $20.  Twenty big ones is pretty cool for a six-year-old. So is a news clipping.  Guess my drawing was a harbinger of sorts, considering my vocation. Not sure how I chose a poodle, since we didn’t have one, I can’t remember neighbors having one and poodle wasn’t even my favorite breed. That distinction belonged to the Puli, a seldom seen moppy-looking breed in my Encyclopedia Britannica. Imagine a poodle with long dreadlocks – that’s a Puli. To this day, I’ve never seen one in person. If you have a little one in your home who likes to draw and likes animals, check out this website: http://www.smhealth.org/publichealthweek. The San Mateo County Health Department, in recognition of National Public Health Week, is sponsoring a coloring contest for kids in grades K-5. Kids are asked to color a page from a coloring book which can be downloaded from the website above or picked-up in person at our new Center for Compassion, 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame. All submissions must be received by March 16. The County Health Department will review submissions and pick winners. Those winners – one for each grade – will get a special tour of our new center with their families and be among the first people to see our Humane House. Construction on this 350-square-foot, walk-in clubhouse with uniquely-presented learning lessons for kids and adults, begins this week. Even if your youngster doesn’t get around to entering the contest, the coloring book with a Doggie Do’s and Don’ts theme is a great resource for kids and parents.
