    Southern Utah University’s
Department of Art & Design is
proud to announce Aundrea Frahm
as the new Assistant Professor of

creative director of a phenomenal
team that creates avant garde fashion
photography. She has exhibited her
artwork in over 50 national and
international exhibitions. Frahm
strives for growth in her classroom
and believes this comes through
one-on-one conversations with stu-
dents, passionate and well-planned
curriculum, inquisitive critiques, and
informative feedback. For her, teach-
ing is extremely rewarding because
of the level of depth that can occur in
technique and concept.

the shelter for her loving care of over 200 dogs. Her
latest visitor is a little white Boxer puppy who is
profoundly deaf, named Chowder.
    In Colorado, another family favors Yorkshire ter-
riers. When two of Nancy’s Yorkies were put down
after suffering from cancer, we thought she would
be glad to be down to a family of just two pets. But
not so. She heard of an organization that rescues
Yorkies, and learned about Daisy, a breeding female
in a puppy mill who had outlived her usefulness. A
long round trip to New Mexico added little Daisy
to their household. Daisy is afraid of being held, of
being outdoors, and much else. It will take a lot of
TLC to fully rescue her.
    Those are just two of Dad’s grandchildren; the
others have dogs as well. His children, my siblings,
all have a dog or two in their households, all loved
and well cared for. But here is the trouble with dogs:
we out-live them. Sooner or later, it is necessary to
send them across the rainbow bridge to a better
place, as just happened again recently. In our family,
however, that is not just a vague concept. We send
them to Dad, aka Opa. As the dog slips away, he/
she is lovingly told to “go find Opa.” There he joins
a large family of happy, familiar dog faces. We hope
Dad’s mansion has a very large backyard.
