"My sweet, sweet Henry...Henry (aka: The Big Guy): Good looking. High energy. Loved tennis balls, baseball gloves and watermelon, but none more than his Santa (toy). Walked like a lizard. Jumped and ran like greased lightning. Always ready for a ride with the windows down. Loved his sister Sarah, protected her like brothers are supposed to. Never passed on a Three Dog Bakery Boxer Brownie Treat. Great furry family member. Forever in our Hearts...rest in peace sweet baby" Denise

Denise commented about her much loved and missed Henry's portrait: "You have captured Henry's love through his eyes, thank you! Goodness, through tears and a huge tug at my heart, thank you.  My little man..."

This solid little mass of girl dog has the most delightful gaze, it's as though she's watching your every move! I'm often asked if I can paint a black dog, I'll let you be the judge. Wink

And of her Dad's gift:"
You are absolutely awesome!!! The final is so impressive and warm. My Dad is going to love it!!!" Denise
