The best dog in the whole world

The very best dog died yesterday. He made me the artist I am.


Roo taught me many things in his short life. He was my guru.

And he was literally a part of my art quite a few times, in this case helping me to remake some Renaissance art.

Gwenn, I’m so sorry to hear this very sad news.  It was the painting you did of Roo being held by your mom that drew me to your work.  I saw it hanging in the sanctuary/gallery at West Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.  I was there for a Yom Kippur service of my Humanistic Jewish congregation.  I had wanted my mom to come, but she was not up to it.  Then when I saw the picture of Roo, I just cried.  My mom had a Brittany Spaniel some years before.  Again, I’m so sorry for this loss.  I’m glad Roo had good years with you and your family. 

Thank you for the work that you do.

Gwenn,

I am just so sorry. It always hurts so much to lose your friends. Nothing makes it better.

What lovely pictures of him though and such a nice tribute. He seems like he was very expressive and a wonderful companion!

Thank you for sharing the photos and your thoughts about Roo. What a special boy:)

Lots of hugs for you,
Libby

Oh yea, he is a great looking dog! How they can show us our heart! Mine is aching for you right now! The good news, he had a beautiful life and a wonderful family.  There is no doubt. 

Love you, Lynette

@Lynette: They do show us our hearts, don’t they? I like that way of thinking. Thank you! <3
