So pretty! I receknow what it's like to lose someone who means the world to you. Those who say: "It's just a animal,get a new one." Have NEVER known what it's like to love somebody that unconditionally loves you back without any "be this,do that" on you. The love of animals is such a nice one because they can truly LOVE. They don't know hate,they don't judge.
He looks like a beautiful dog, Shadow-Wolf. <3
May his soul rest in peace.
I lost my childhood friend, Buster, (bull mastiff cross ridge back) by him getting hit by a car. We had been looking for a family for him for years, and as soon as he finds a good one he's hit by a car! ;D; I only got a photo of his grave because he was in another state with my dad(Parents split up in different states)
I'm...I'm awed at your skill....O___o
All my respects are sent to Wolfy!
You've done and outstanding job and I am deeply sorry for your loss.
I was looking through your gallery and happened upon this painting, and immediately I realized that I missed your pup.. and I felt very empty and inconsolable.
I have lost pets before, so I can relate to the feeling, but this was a connection far deeper than what I am used to when viewing art.
((And on a random side note, he was born exactly nine days after I was born, same year ))
