Oh Sally, what an absolutely wonderful, beautiful gift!! I don't even have words for the heartwarming, fuzzy, thoughtfulness of this very special gesture of kindness...
It is a treasure for sure. I have to go get some tissues, now......

Love and hugs.......

Pet Portraits by Garry! I'm afraid it would cut into his fishing time. After all, as far as he is concerned, every day is Saturday, which means he can be found on the river any day of the week.

Thank you all for your kind comments. We agree that Sally and Hannah are worth their weight in gold around here...and with Hannah, that's a LOT of gold!!

Kathi and Murphy

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!

Awwwww!!!!! LOVE IT! clap Hannah's pretty face is captured so perfectly. And Sally we DO NOT need dramamine to watch your videos, they are priceless, silly!

Garry is one amazing artist, we are completely in awe of his talents and generosity in creating this treasure, it really says a lot about him. Amazing.

Joan and Lily

Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.

What a very beautiful portrait of a very beautiful girl.  Garry did a great job. Very impressive.  I love the portrait and I love that someone was able to do such a kindness for you and Miss Hannah.  <3

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

Sally...

I am speechless here.. with a single tear rolling down my cheek.

I understand the overwhelming emotion and love you have and I can feel it when I read your words expressing your amazement, gratitude and love for that beautiful portait of a beautiful girl!!

What a treasure, gift, life long memory.  Stunning! 

Christine... with Franklin in her heart♥

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012.  Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013.  Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack...   You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!

I just had the chance to really look at the portrait and I don't think there are any words left unsaid about what a beautiful tribute it is to Hannah and to her one-of-a-kind-Mom.  Nicely done, Kathi and Garry.

Thanks again for all of the comments on Hannah's portrait. Garry has been fishing this weekend, but will be home tomorrow. I know that he will be overwhelmed by the number of wonderful things everyone has said about the painting.
