Sadie Lady is a Jack Russell Mix.  The painting is an acrylic on 12″x12″ gallery wrap canvas.  SOLD!   Sadie is one of my granddogs.

A couple of years ago, Allen’s daughter appeared at my door early one morning with Sadie in tow.  She was doing her morning walk and this little dog “started following her”.  She wanted me to take it.  At the time I had three dogs and said, Oh, no!  I convinced her to take it home and call the shelter to see if anyone was missing a little girl like her.  She ended up taking her to the shelter.  Then regretting it.  As soon as Sadie was available for adoption she went right back out and got her.  She had been a much-loved member of the family ever since.   🙂

She’s a little spoiled, but hey, shouldn’t all dogs be spoiled???!!!

Here I am with Sadie with the evil eyes at Christmas this year.  She thinks she should always be in someones lap or arms.

This is Jam.  The painting is an acrylic on canvas measuring 12″x12″.  This painting is SOLD

Jam’s story started as a difficult one.  He was abused but rescued by his wonderful mommy, Carol Ann.  He had to be the most difficult rescue I have ever seen and I’ve rescued and seen friends rescue quite a few dogs.  

Jam was fearful of people, of the house, of the hallway leading into the house, of everything.  And he made a terrible mess in his fear – poop.  It was so hard for Carol Ann the first two weeks.  I wasn’t sure he was going to adjust but she was patient and help him get settled in with his sister Bella in his new home. 

He came around little by little and now is a happy boy.  Thank you Carol Ann for rescuing him and helping him become a normal happy dog.  You’re a lucky boy, Jammie!
