      Little Angels Service Dogs is a charitable organization which provides service dogs in the United States, and internationally, to assist those with mobility, seizure, autism, hearing, diabetic, and even psychiatric conditions and disorders. Little Angels is committed to their recipients for life and works hard to ensure they receive all the support necessary for a beneficial partnership with their new canine. These working dogs are life changing for their owners, allowing for a much safer and independent lifestyle that would be unnavigable without their presence.

      Currently, Little Angels has two accredited training facilities – one in San Diego, the other in New Hampshire. Their training philosophy is based on positive reinforcement and love, and taught in three phases which include socialization, obedience and learning specialized assistance tasks. Little Angels was born out of a garage in 2006 by Founder, Katie Gonzalez, and was established as a nonprofit in 2011. Since then, more than 100 dogs have been placed into service, more than 80 dogs have been rescued and trained for service or placed into loving homes, and over 60 dogs have been invested into three prison programs, helping more than 80 inmates learn new skills, compassion, and accountability.

      Much of the success of this organization is dependent upon donations and volunteers. Training just one service dog to change someone's life costs on average $38,000. Little Angels is committed to changing lives one dog at a time but needs your help to continue their mission. Please consider giving to this important and worthwhile organization.

    • Artist Biography

      Cartier

      French

      With the Constitution of 1848 came a new standard for luxury in France. Founded one year prior by Louis-Francois Cartier, the house of Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making. This incredibly expensive material became the stepping-stone for Cartier to experiment in form, mechanisms and attitude. It helped men move from pocket watches to wristwatches, effectively making the watch much more functional and prominent in a man's overall wardrobe.

      Cartier did not only touch on functionality. Inspired by a commissioned painting by George Barbier featuring a black panther at the feet of an elegantly bejeweled woman, Cartier began incorporating wild animals in his designs—most notably, Cartier Panthère rings, bangle bracelets and watches. Yet it wasn't until the late 1960s that the house of Cartier debuted their iconic yellow and rose gold LOVE collection, which includes the famous bracelet that only a special screwdriver can open.
