Anderson with his fellow dog pal, J.R., winner of the 2001 Westminster show. Stump and J.R. sported the new Children’s Art Project “Flag” bandana featuring the artwork of three pediatric patients.

In addition to the “Flag” pet bandana that launched this summer, the Children’s Art Project introduced a collection of dog ornaments from Joy to the World Collectibles. The five canines – “True Friend,” “Loyal Friend,” “Faithful Friend,” “Devoted Friend,” and “Constant Friend” – are a line of glass ornaments hand painted and blown in Poland.
