"Every year Charlie & J had their picture taken with Santa at Operation Kindness J was 7 when he got Charlie and they shared a great life together.

Painted for my client’s friend, a lady who adores this pup more than words can express. Who wouldn't love that face? But I’m a sucker for a furry love story, aren’t you?
