This is a pet portrait I did way back in 2004 for a member of my own "extended" doggy pack. Bella belongs to my best friend and it is with much sadness that we have had to say goodbye to her today. Bella was an amazing athlete and watching her catch her frisbee in mid air was like watching an Olympic event. She will be playing with Big Tommy soon at the rainbow bridge. This has been a very rough past year, way too many people I care about have lost their pets. It just never gets easier to experience this sort of grief first hand or to watch others go through it. Bella you were the best girl ever and I was so lucky to have you in my life. The Scotties will miss you. Nobody will ever catch the disc as well as you did.
