This is a painting of one of my rescue dogs-- Joker. My mother painted this of him in the late
80's. It is a good painting and I appreciated it very much. She gave it to me one Christmas.
Joker was bought by a couple who made their living showing dogs. Joker was an Ibsen Hound. At the time there was very few in the US. They bought him when he was a puppy. They had planned to show him and put him out for stud. Joker turned out not to be a good breed dog He was too tall and too long and had a bad bite. We rescued him from them. They had given him away but the people kept bring him back. He was 5 and a half when we got him. We walked everyday kind of like Lulu and Bogart does. Joker was an lets go kind of guy!! He would have been happy to walk all day long!!!!
Something to remind us that it will be spring someday! It will warm up!! We have had 12 days of below 24 degrees and we are sick of it!!!
