  • Thanks Syd and Dennis - she's pretty resilient, 13 years old (pretty good for a Lab) deaf as a post but rejuvenated by a new squeaky tennis ball which must reverberate through her teeth! The bit that made me melancholy was painting those eyes with the grey reflection of her cataracts, but she's always had a sad face so I'm used to the gloomy features!!

  • Your love for your dog shines through in this painting Helen. Hope all goes well, I've been through this a few times it doesn't get easier.

  • Such a great painting Helen, she looks so lovely I'm sure you will treasure this in years to come. My dog is 14, a good age, he's actually looking like an old man now with grey around his eyes and arthritis. I hope your lovely dog keeps going for a good while yet.

  • Oh don't - you're breaking my heart as I know what it is like to be facing that sort of thing with a dog. Beautiful heartfelt portrait and I am really feeling the passionate sentiment that motivated you to do it. Wishing all the luck in the world to your lovely friend.
