A while back I was at a fundraiser event for Husky House (www.huskyhouse.org) People would order portraits, and a percentage of the order would be donated to Husky House. One man ordered portraits of his dogs Montana and Cubby. Montana is a Rottweiler-Husky mix and Cubby was a Rottweiler.

The sad part, Cubby was alive when he ordered the portrait. A couple weeks later (when it was time for me to start the portrait) Cubby was diagnosed with fast onset of cancer and had to be put to sleep. It was very sudden and big shock. Cubby was also a K-9 Narcotics officer for 9 years and a very important part of the community. It was very heart breaking news and my heart really went out to him. So the portrait became even more important for me to work on and I put many hours into it. I'm going to make him a memorial plaque from the portrait as well.

Thanks guys I appreciate the feedback. I'm a little nervous giving it to him after all that's happened.  Sad I don't want to stir up hard feelings for him.
