This portrait of "Jade" (CH Foxfire's All That Jazz) was commissioned by a group of Junior Handlers as a surprise for Michelle Santana, to show their appreciation for all that she has done for them. One of the Juniors, Ashlee Claggett, wrote: "Michelle Santana...a very special person...has done so much for the juniors; she has initiated many great programs to help us reach the stars. ...Last night, we presented Michelle with the Jade portrait. She absolutely loves it! She cried, laughed, and thought it was just magnificent."
Jade was Michelle's "heart dog".
The DPCA Junior Handlers who gave this gift are Ashlee Claggett, Kacie Foelker, Mallary Ross, Karlee Ann Howard, Taylor Rae Schwartz, Lulu Wright and Danielle Schmitt.
