A Portrait Of Our Greta

For Mother's Day, my always thoughtful husband, Michael, commissioned this beautiful rendering of our beloved Greta from our friend Amy Jo Karn, who is a pet portraitist extraordinaire. We always fancied Greta to be a "scholarly" dog with deep thoughts, hence her perch on the book. The pink camellia flowers represent the blooms on the tree that we buried her under, and the hummingbird is how we envision her spirit - flying freely and joyfully through the world...

Aw, she looks really lovely. Where does this portrait hang?

Hello friend!

It's right in our living room so that we feel she is with us and still part of our daily lives...
