” … one
Who possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferosity,
and all the virtues of Man without his Vices.”
~ Lord Byron
Sweet Sam. Sam’s human is a very dear friend of mine. Kathy feels about her dogs as I feel about mine … they are members of the family. So I knew first hand her heartache when her beloved Sam was diagnosed with cancer. Kathy asked me to create these portraits of Sam when it became evident that the treatments were not going to help him any longer. Sam crossed the Rainbow Bridge not too long after our session. He was a very loved dog. He was a loyal friend. He is dearly missed.
