Amanda's photos shared her Sadie girl in action, intent & ready to play. But when I saw this image I knew it was The One. A keepsake I could show her spunk as well as her adoration. Amanda wrote "I am so excited to see her face come alive again in your painting!"

Sassy Smudges story: "Sadie was a little ball of energy at all times. She loved to cuddle but she also loved to play with her sisters. Her favorite time was when I would say the word frisbee...I'd have her full attention, she couldn't wait for me to throw it. All I had to do was say the word and she would go find it and bring it to me ready to go! I would give anything to have a little more time with my sweet girl."  Amanda
