Thank you to Leann and Dahlila for barking in about Buddie’s portrait!
Hey Joy I just visited dogeachday.com and saw that Budster was the featured dog of the day on the site! Yahoo!
Leeann and Dahlila
Here’s what’s on the Dog Each Day site about Buddie. Thank you Becky for suggesting Buddie for this honor!
The Budster was thirteen years old and a real sweetie. Unfortunately, he recently became very sick with heart troubles. Buddies Mom stayed with him through a rough fight, but sadly he died in her arms Friday morning, June 30th. I guess there was something about the Budman that just made you wanna hug on himI know his family really loved him. He was listed as a pound mutt/collie-shepherd mix, but I think he was 100 % pure sweetheartso just a suggestion for another dog of the day. – Becky
Becky, thank you for sharing Buddies story with me. Its heartbreaking in one sense and heartwarming in another – seeing how many folks have offered their thoughts and prayers to Buddies family (click here to see Buddies Dogster page). Once again, I hope my sketch of Buddie D. Smith can bring some joy to his loving family.
This is a quick sketch from a small picture from Buddies Dogster page. I tried out a new pencil I just purchased – a carbon pencil. Its smoother than a charcoal pencil but much more bold (rich) than graphite and without the graphite sheen. I need to play with it some more, but I like it so far.
A fitting portrait for a great dog!
