My husband and I have wanted a CKCS for a long time now. I spent 3 three years trying to rescue one. I must have sent in 40 applications for dogs over the years and never heard back. Then one day I'm in my vet's office picking up my cats food and a man walks in with his Cavalier. Right away, I'm gushing over his dog and telling him how badly we want one. Then he tells me that he's coming in to see if she was pregnant!! So, it turned out that she was pregnant and he let us have pick of the litter! It was like fate! When he saw my art, he asked me if I would create a portrait of the mother, Sarah. We're going to bring home our puppy home this Friday, we're naming her Stella. So here's Sarah's portrait. I'm very proud of it and I can't wait to give it to him.
Here's a picture of our puppy at 5 weeks old on the day we picked her out (she's going to be 9 weeks when she comes home).
Not the best picture of me, but it's become one of my favorites.
My amazing DH with our puppy.
