When ordering this gift for her parents, Deena laughingly mentioned how spoiled their fur baby was...I wonder if Fritz would agree...

Deena's reaction? "It's wonderful!"
Zach passed awhile ago, but Lindsey's been searching for something special to do in his memory.
With his soft eyes and tumble of curly fur, Zach was gorgeous, and I'm honored she chose my work for her parents keepsake.

A gift for her daughter, Patty wrote: "Looks great – my daughter is going to love it!"
Proud pet parent Terry already owns a 5x7 portrait of his girl, but when he contacted me to paint these ornaments I was only too pleased to once again be adoring Ms Mew's impish look!

Although Zora and Jazz's ornaments are memorial, the book written about Zorro, by his "Mom", is testimonial to the loving home all 3 have enjoyed.

A gift for her in-laws, Cindy had this to say: "The ornaments of Zorro, Zora, & Jazzy looked spectacular on their tree. They just kept thanking me over and over for them."
