Oh so sad, they do not last forever. Beautiful portrait, his name suited him very well Lisa.

Beautiful memorial to a handsome chap Lisa.

A substantial old dog - although I kept dogs for many years, I was only actually present at the deaths of two of them: and it was horrible. But thanks to you, your cousin has a memorial to him, and a very well painted one.

Thank you all for your generous comments!
