Last Year on the Farm 05 - 18-2007 v....vaughan

I painted this with a very heavy heart. Our beloved dog, Sandy died in the early morning hours. He was laying in the yard in his usual place , lifeless, this morning.Just yesterday I photographed him as he greeted me on the road after taking my son to school. He had slowed down a lot this year, but his favorite thing to do was to roam the hay fields. We just did that yesterday...Sandy came to us as a stray and was always a mellow, easy going pal...I will paint him tomorrow ...

"Last Year on the Farm" paintings will be offered for sale in a few months, when our last year is up. Please ask me if you want a copy of the story. If you see one you like, PLEASE CONTACT V....Vaughan to have first shot at it. A list is underway....my kids get first pick! ;)

A beautiful painting... It is so sad when a pet that is one of the family passes on... Doggie Heaven has one more angel pup...

I'm reading backwards here. So hard to let them go. So hard when they get old. I have an old friend across the street who I walk and take care of. He went blind last summer and it's really slowed him down. After being in FL for 4 months I see the difference in him.
He's a 90 pound Yellow Lab named Morey. I've actually posted him on my Not Really A Cleaning Lady blog. Check it out when you're ready to laugh.
