As long as I find something in my archives I can take a few minutes to post something. I'm having withdrawl!
This is a painting I did when we first moved to California. This is Biff, one of the three boys that drove out with us. He was a typical sun worshipper, just like his mom. I took him from his previous owners when he was a year old. He had malnutrition and pneumonia. He lived on a dairy farm and they didn't believe in feeding him because they thought he wouldn't be a good mouser unless he was hungry. They never gave him vaccines and the result of that was upper respiratory infection that went into pneumonia.
I took him to the vet hospital where I worked. He was negative for leukemia, thank goodness, so we treated his pneumonia, fattened him up and when he was better we neutered him. He was nearly seventeen when he died.
He had the biggest crush on me, honestly it was a hoot! I dearly miss him.
Now that we're moving back, it seems appropriate to post something that I did shortly after our arrival.
Happy Animal Wednesday!! And yes, I'm still packing like crazy ;)
