Tearing up now...love my Ashe dog so much can't imagine not having him,, this particular portrait of Happy grabs me because of that "look" in his eyes...a look of love and trust..this portrait of him is superb and captures something more for you I'm sure. Fabulous Carolyn!

Thanks Bobbie and Cindy. Happy was a pound puppy we brought with us from California when we moved here. She was a good ol' dog. Was 14 when she died.

Beautiful portrait of Happy. Such a soulful face. I posted a shot a few weeks ago of Cleo, a kitty I had for 19 years. She's been gone since 1998 and I still think of her. I'm sure that is how you are about Happy.
