Pet Portraits


Every morning Huck would stand in the kitchen. Rozzy would get up and touch Huck's nose and then serpentine around his legs; telling everyone Huck belonged to her. I loved this ritual. When Kate G at my vet's office, painted some incredible animals for the office, I asked her to paint my Huck and my Rozzy. I found a picture I had taken of the ritual. Here's the amazing and touching result. I just got it today. Kate captured their tenderness with one another perfectly.

I so admire those who can paint. I love when the painting exceeds your expectations. This one does.

Now along with Huck's ashes and ribbons and paw print, I have this amazing painting to hang in my home. It does them both justice.

I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>

So beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. Macy and Max touch noses that way all during the day. I have always wondered what it means--what they are telling each other. Our fur-babies are so sweet!!

That's a great painting.

My bunnies have that same ritual when they run into each other during their hops around the apartment.
