We are thrilled that you are so happy with her portrait! Garry as always been just as big a Hannah fan as I have been. He always wants to see the photos and videos. I was so hoping that it would arrive for her ampuversary.

You and Hannah are both so special to all of us here. We just wanted to let you know how we feel.

Kathi and Murphy...and Garry and Gus, too

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Sally that is so beautiful.  Gary did a wonderful job with Happy Hannah's picture it brought me to tears looking at it.  I can't wait for someone to take a picture with you, Hannah & that portrait.  Its lovely.  The videos are great.  Amazing.  It does capture everything about Hannah.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

WOW, that is spectacular!!!!!! A true treasure for life. I hope everytime you look at it you are not only reminded of your precious Hannah but also of how much everyone here loves and values YOU!! I'm so impressed Gary. That's quite a 'hobby' you have. Are you sure you don't want to make a business out of your incredible talent?! 'Pet Portraits by Gary', I can see it now.
