Had to take a bit of a break from my usual, as I’m learning to adjust and re-balance my daily life without Spence.
Because I try to paint what I love and amazes me, he was the subject of many works both as himself and sometimes as a model. Some I posted, some I haven’t. (You can again see ones I’ve posted here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.) I’m sure you’ll be seeing him again, too.
Spencer, aka (by me and others who knew him)
Colorado Mountain Dog,
1st Bank Dog,
Hardware Store Dog,
KBCO Calendar Cover Boy,
Coolest Dog Ever
…will be so missed.
You see, that’s what great about dogs. He was the best dog in the world for me, but that works for every dog. I think every dog-owner believes their dog is the best and could take the very same titles. And that’s ok!
Perhaps that’s because dogs give us the security of unconditional love, and we do our best to return the favor by seeing nothing but the best. I’ve never had children nor been married, but I can only hope any love I may have comes even half as close as I loved my dog.
