OPERA HOUSE DOG., Jr.
They say home is where you find it, and, as a refugee from a southern kill shelter, I'm lucky to have found mine here in this exciting, dramatic community. I mean, they tell me to act right and I just say, hey, we're all acting all the time! This is what my humans seem to call "living your mission." I call it: waiting for supper. Or for the door to open. Or a bone.
But I digress. In terms of excellence in everyday performance, no one in my view beats OHA's volunteer Housing Coordinators, Mary Kay Ricks and Jane Osborne. Talk about finding home: they placed 100 artists (for 100 years of the Opera House) for a total of 1250 nights (more than 3 years worth!) of artist housing for the Opera House. Yip! This makes me whirl and chase my tail and jump for joy (sorry about the jumping).
This is such a heroic job my people tell me they have term limits on it, limiting these eager volunteers to only two years of finding artist housing. Two years may as well be 14 to me, but who's counting? The simple truth is that Mary Kay and Jane will be done at the end of this season: will you be the one to take their places? I hope so. I need to get to know you better. Act like a hero: call me!
