Doggie Thursday

Since this is doggie Thursday I thought I would post the picture I painted on a card of thanks for a friend. She turned 81 the other day. She and her Sister had a big cocktail party to celebrate and asked people to bring a donation for the local Pet Shelter instead of gifts for them. You can imagine howdelighted the shelter must have been when they walked in with an envelope containing nearly $900. Whooooo hoooo... and we had such a good time.
This little doggie is hers. I forget the specific breed but his name is Moochie. Most of you dog owners know the reason why.

What a great way to celebrate. I like parties in which people pay it forward by giving to others. It's very nice.

That's a wonderful card.

May your friend enjoy the coming year.

Wow!
What a beautiful post!
Love the idea of asking something for someone else, in this case a shelter! They must have been thrilled! They can do so much with this money!
The painting is fantastic!
I think it is a Shih Tzu! Like my dogs and the one Soulbrush has!
Before these 2 dogs I have now I had a Shih Tzu in exactly this color. Your friend must have been very happy with this card!

I agree it's a Shih Tzu!! I had one for 15 years and guess what...his name was Mooshie!! Very similar :)
You did a great job on him, and how wonderful for the shelter to get such a gift!
