My friend did not tell me which one was Mickey blue eyes. This is a piece she commissioned to give her husband for his birthday. We were neighbors when we were both newleyweds. One of my fondest memories of him was how he was so patient with our dog Clyde. Clyde would continuously drop sticks in the path when he was mowing. He would always pick up the stick and throw it and Clyde would bring it right back to him. I bet these dogs are well loved and cared for.
Speaking of well loved.... I am crazy about my new friend Ruthie. I am going to be honest and tell you that I do not usually care for cats. I mostly decided to get a cat to help keep critters away. Well.....no critters better get close to my Ruthie. This has been such a pleasant surprise. She is bringing me so much happiness and laughter. She is slowing my painting down a little because she wants to be in my lap. My sons are tired of getting text pictures of her. The one that has met her understands.
