Sami was painted from a photo shared with me by my Redbubble friend Jacque http://www.redbubble.com/people/jacquelynn Sami has been a real joy to Jacque for many years & is now quite ill. Not knowing how much longer Sami will be with her, I painted this for her as a remembrance of her dear friend when the day comes that she has to say that final goodbye.

    That is so lovely of you to do, how sad to say good bye to a beloved pet. Beautiful work! Thank you for adding to Just For You!

  • Thank you, Vigor. I can relate to an ill pet as I’ll be saying goodbye to my cat, Winnie, in the near future who is 16 & in renal failure.

    Congratulations for your Feature, Marsha! (Already…it’s posted!) I Love this painting of my Sami as well as what you have said…THANK you, Dear Friend. It IS a very good Likeness of Sam. I’m now asking around for anyone who might have a boot box they are willing to give up. Who knows? Maybe he’ll be around another year or so, but he’s lost so much weight since that pic. I sent you; right now, I think he’s skin & bones covered with fur. It’s So hard to watch him so uncomfortable. Thank you So Much for such a beautiful painting, Marsha.

  • I’m thrilled that you like this, Jacque. Winnie has lost alot of weight, too, yet she still loves to do some of her favorite things. I hope & pray for her & Sami that they both will just quietly slip away in the night so that you or I won’t have to take their life from them.

    Both of my dogs are getting old too, one is 14 and the other is 12 and they are slowing down. I know the inevitable is coming one day and my heart breaks when I think of not having them around anymore. My thoughts are with you as well, they are our babies.

  • Wow, isn’t that pretty old for dogs? You’re absolutely right….they’re our babies, our family. Losing our best friends is all part of pet ownership, but knowing that doesn’t make it any easier. The best to you & you’re “kids”.
