On Wednesday, June 18, 2014 around 5:30 p.m. I had to say goodbye to my best friend of 15 years. He was a constant, my baby boy and my best friend. He was and still is my main inspiration for creating my animal-related paintings and pet portraits.
He was with me through thick and thin. I love him and although he is still with me in spirit, I miss him dearly every single day. I’m adjusting to this next chapter in my life, and as hard as it has been, I wouldn’t trade our time together for anything in the universe. There is nothing in this world like the friendship between a human and animal companion. I am truly grateful for whatever forces are out there that they brought Rushmore and I together and allowed us to be such good friends for such a long time. He taught me a lot about myself and about life. I miss you Rushy-poo, you will always be my main man.
