Memories of A Favorite Family Pet

Today I offer you a painting that was inspired by a memory that my husband shared with me about his family dog. Dusty was a golden retriever with a very big heart that reached out to not only the family but beyond.
When the neighbor’s cat had kittens she would always leave them unattended and crying. One day Dusty went over to the neighbor’s back yard and cuddled the kittens. They clung to him and he nuzzled and licked them like they were his own. When the roaming mother cat came back and saw this she hired Dusty right on the spot. Every litter there after she would run over and meow at Dusty who would dutifully babysit her brood .
You can see why I call this painting “The Baby Sitter”.

    • Thanks Jim. Pets, like children, give us that lovely backdrop on life. No matter what happens there are always those good memories of them.
