By the time I left the AKC Gazette in 1995, I already was a "Maxwell" medalist. The Dog Writer's Association of America honored me with the "Best Illustration" prize of 1991. Being also an acknowledgement for my work trajectory in the pure bred dog field' art related.
Every time I stop to think, that the government in my native Cuba regardless my talent wanted me beheaded, I say to myself...God! I really have to LOVE this country.
