I found these 3 month old pups in the fall of 1997 at the local animal shelter and couldn’t resist adopting them. I captured this image in the summer 2004 while visiting my parents in Ohio. I did the oil painting in 2005. In the spring of 2006, Thelma was killed by a hit and run driver. Lousie is still alive and well and is currently observing her 15th autumn. She is on the left in the portrait.
There are many animals in various animal shelters longing for a loving home. Please visit your neighborhood shelter and adopt a pet.
