    Topic: Works of art of every media type and style that address the topic of nature, and organic design through one or more of the following themes:
    •Nature
    •Environmentalism

    As dog warden, his actual responsibility was to pick up only the canines, so he would usually refer the callers to the appropriate people who could capture the other animals. He has had his hands full, sometimes literally, with dogs.
