As a child when I was hurt or upset I would quietly paint or draw. I would escape into my own world to release the pain. I still do.
This morning started like an ordinary day, but I knew it wouldn't be. I had to take our beloved Bearded Collie to the vet for surgery. I have mentioned Bailey so often on my blog and on my workshops. He has been my loyal companion for over thirteen years and I love him unconditionally.
My heart is breaking as I type the news that my lovable companion is no longer with me. During an operation this morning Cancer was found and the situation was far worse than we expected. We lost our four legged family member and friend, our sweet Bearded Collie this morning.
As in my childhood. I escape via my art. I can't bring my wonderful fluffy pup back to life but I can keep him near me via my brushwork.
My heart is aching so badly.
But I am so grateful for all the years of fun and love we have shared.
Forgive my personal heartfelt blog post.
Sometimes life isn't always perfect.
Dear Bailey, we will miss you with all our hearts. To everyone who loved my beautiful dog,thank you so much for loving him over the years. I am going to miss him terribly.
Goodnight Sweet Friend.
