A Gallery Painting of a Special Dog...
They say every painting has a story to tell- and this one is the story of Pepper- and the story is true.
I painted Pepper out on a carefree walk, but the truth is that this painting is a wishful dream for a wonderful Labrador Retriever.
Pepper lived happily with her loving owner. For many years she was his loyal friend and companion.
So loved and so cared for that she never had a care in the world.
As she entered her golden years she did not age as so many Labs do- in fact she often fooled people into thinking she was only 5 or 6.
Then one day her loving owner tearfully brought her to a strange place full of other dogs barking rudely. He wrote a note telling all who
would see her what a great dog she was and how healthy and vibrant she was for a senior dog- and that he had to move to a place where
pets were not allowed.
He embraced her one last time- and left...
Pepper waited for his return.
When he did not come she began looking longingly at every person willing to make eye contact- her eyes saying
"Please give me a chance- I will adore you forever! I will not misbehave or chew- Please don't leave me here"
She is quiet, great natured, young in spirit, healthy and desperately wants the chance to be in a warm home again.
Pepper has found a forever home!
Thank you to the volunteers at the Agoura Animal Shelter.
