We’re busy prepping for a Fundraiser/Howl-O-ween Party this Friday night! For more specifics about the fun and frivolities, see previous post below or visit Dogmata Denver. Come join us!!
Here’s a new painting I’ll be showing there. Spencer (my pooch and favorite model) has been recovering from some medical issues as has dear Benny (Spencer’s cousin), and it has gotten me to thinking about our animal friends.
Some can’t live with pets. Some can’t live without them. Some see them as animals. Some see them as family members.
Being single and living alone with no human children, I think my relationship with him is different than those living with a family. We’re truly a team. I see Spencer as my closest pal, my confidant, and my best listener. He’s always up for anything (except ear medicine) hoping there’s a game in it somewhere. When I’ve needed him he’s always been there tail wagging, and I do my best to reciprocate.
As we both grow older I’m realizing exactly how much we lean on each other.
