Evident in an email “Millie’s” Julia dearly misses her. “My beautiful, sweet dog Millie passed away last summer, and I have been looking for someone special to do a portrait of her for me. She was a whippet and so elegant and graceful both physically and spiritually. I hope you can see that in the picture I’ve attached.”
Yes, I could. Gadora later sent her a picture my family’s own sweet Whippet “Bowie” who also left us last summer, after giving us 17 years of smiles, and we exchanged some silly e-banter about their antics, personalities and how much we missed them. Here is Millie in her Charlotte, NC home with her siblings: 2 Italian Greyhounds. A rare, quiet moment of the three.
Because of their similar expressions and shiny black nose, painting Millie was a lot like painting Bowie. I’d like to think Miss Bozer-Nozer and Lil Millie are happily chasing one another like crazy in doggie heaven. Here is her portrait…
To which Julia replied, “I just got Millie’s portrait, and words fail! I cannot tell you how perfect it is – I LOVE it! Once I have found a frame that fits, it will be on display at the center of our home. I am so happy that Daily Candy showed you off, I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job!”
Thank YOU Julia.
