I received the picture today. When I turned it over I just started to cry. You captured my little ones to a T. The picture is gorgeous. You are truly a very talented artist who has an eye for capturing not only the physical aspect of your subject but their souls as well. Thank you so much. I will treasure this always.
You are right in that I cannot wait to give to my husband. I bought a beautiful black frame to put it in. It will be on the wall this evening.
Here's how Betsy's friend reacted:~Betsy
O, Betsy! It gives me goosebumps!You can see their personalities so vividly. It's exactly them!
A dog may be man's best friend, but many dog lovers end up with numerous canine companions over the course of a lifetime.Bill Henderson has had a total of 13.The author of "All My Dogs: A Life" has dedicated his memoir to a shaggy mutt called Lulu who he describes as his "life dog".The book covers his own strict upbringing, rocky times in his marriage (he credits a dog with saving it), and the birth of his daughter. Each of the chapters is named after one of his dogs.Describing it as a "mutt memoir",
says the book is half about humans and half about dogs. His conclusion is that dogs are more than just man's best friend, they are an essential member of the whole family. Henderson
