Maryl Rachlin transplanted from Boston and found


building a client base for her art in Florida to be a challenge until personal loss turned into inspiration and the ability to touch others.When Princess, her beloved Shepherd mix died, she found comfort in her art and a new medium, polymer clay. The clay allows for three dimensional paintings of dogs. The art, while adorable in its own right, serves an invaluable pur- pose, enabling Maryl to mourn Princess, then provide that comfort to others who felt the loss of a pet as acutely as she did. Even with the dancing swirls of color making springtime


in Winter Park more glorious than usual, the real stars of the day were the Greyhounds. Their presence reminded passers- by of their grace, beauty, and their plight. Sebastian Haul Fund, created in 2008, helps Greyhound


groups with the financial challenge of transporting the dogs from Florida adoption groups to other groups outside of the state where there is a better chance of them finding homes. Since 2008, the organization has helped more than 1,000 Greyhounds. The fund was named in loving memory of a very special


Greyhound. Sebastian was loved without limits in the home of Brian Wettstein and Jeff Brow, co-owners of The Doggie Door. He was a clown with a helicopter tail who reminded everyone there is no bigger joy in life than play.
