    Because Molly has been so sick I decided to have paintings done of my girls. There is a local artist here who does a great job and has a special rate for 2 or more paintings. I just picked them up yesterday.

    Here they are:
    Calleigh: My little Tomboy.

    I was thrilled with how they turned out. This was my Christmas gift to me. These were taken from pictures my groomer took of them. I can never get Calleigh to sit still, so was glad each one is perfect to me!

    The man's name is Dennis and he is a local artist here in Cranbrook. I had a large one done of Molly (8x10) and then a little smaller (7 x 10) of Calleigh, Maggie & Patti. He does a great job. You just give him a good picture and then in 2 or 3 weeks they are done. I love them and cried when I got them. Molly is ok, but losing weight - I've been to the Vet and there's not much can be done. Diane said with this illness it's better if she doesn't have much weight on her. Molly is a little sweetheart and it saddens me to see her going down.

    I think Dennis is a very gifted artist and he captured the personality and essence of each darling girl. You must be so happy! I am sorry about Molly and know how you must be feeling. Our Buddy is getting so he can no longer stand for more than just a few minutes and when he walks, he falls a lot.

    This brings tears to my eyes. I fell in love with your Buddy the first time I saw pictures of him. What a gentle soul he is. And he has always been extremely handsome. Please give him lots of hugs and puppy kisses from me and my girls. I love your sweet man. Enjoy every minute you have with him.

    Yes, it's not easy watching them fail. Sometimes when Molly goes outside she trips and her balance is really very bad.

    It breaks my heart when we know one of our babies isn't doing very well. Enjoy every minute you have with your precious Molly. She is well loved and has had a good life with you.

    When my husband saw the paintings of your girls, he got excited that this same artist might be willing to do a "family" portrait of all of ours! If only I could get some good pictures of them together.

    Wouldn't your local artist do a painting for Susan? She could send you the picture. He did such a nice job on your babies Lynn. I would want him to do mine if I had it done.

    Bobbi, I think I have a local artist that I know, right here in Granite Falls, but she does pen and ink, not paintings. The one in the link Lynn provided doesn't do nearly as nice a job as Lynn's artist did. I did buy an original pen and ink picture of two darling yorkies from the artist here and I spoke to her about doing a "family" portrait for me about a year ago. She said she does not do people and at the time, we wanted to be included. We have some options and might even be able to find someone who can first take a decent group picture for us.

    Yes, that's great Susan. The man who does pets here is excellent, but he only does pets in Cranbrook, B.C. as he is quite elderly and it is just a hobby for him.
