Today we lost our Beloved Vinnie(age 15), he is with our other dog Pierre( we had for 9yrs since age 4months) at the Rainbow Bridge, playing and healthy again.
He was a very good companion for 13 of his 15 years and a playmate to our Little Yorkiepoo, Piper(age3) for a little over the past 2 years.
Vinnie picked up the good and bad habits of Pierre as they lived together for only 9 months as did Piper learn the good and bad habits of Vinnie over the past 2+ years.. so we say.... the LEGACY LIVES ON!
His health began to deteriorate 2 years ago with we adopted Piper and the Hearty Ol'Soul he is.. hung on this long with a severe heart problem, lived on two heart pills, arthritis pill and water pill a day.
We thank the good Lord we have our little YorkiePoo Piper, he is such a joy, full of love and energy.
We Miss him Terribly.

Rainbow Bridge Poem:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor.
Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing;
they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops
and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass,
his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet,
you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head,
and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone
from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Just wanted to share some good news!
I entered the Adult Art Division again this year.
My Paintings:
"Greetings" won First Place in Acrylics
"Steam Train" won First Place in Watercolor
"Blue Heron" won Second Place in Color Pencil!
I was very excited with the Awards!!
This year at the annual Top of the Lake Art Fest held in Okeechobee, FL I had entered the Juried booth division, and displayed approximately 27 different pieces of my best artwork.
Amongst a total of  7 artists and 5 photographers, there were many well known in our area.

In the Painting catagory I was honored to recieve the 2nd Place Award for my Painting "Bullseye", I understand the judges were pleased with the detail in his fur.

Needless to say that I was totaly surprised and still am very excited about this Award. Its a first for me and Hopefully not the last. Wishful thinking.
Christmas is coming and if anyone wants a special gift, a gift of rememberance of a long lost/deceased pet, its one that is very special and holds alot of memories!!
I can memorialize your pet for you!!
Feel free to contact me for a commission to do your favorite pet portrait!!
thanks, Kathie
For many Years I used to do alot of doodling and some sketching. Back in 2002  for about a year I did as a hobby sketch  and doodle which I saved most of it. Then I just stopped Untill Recently when I had more time on my hands.  

In November of 2007 I began to sketch and do alot of  Color Pencil drawings. I recieved so many compliments on then  that I decided to broaden my talent and see what I could do with Watercolors and Acrylics.

I actualy just began in Late January this year with Watercolor and an occasional dabbling with Acrylics. I feel more comfortable right now with watercolors but will continue to practice and work with the Acrylic paints. Each time I do Paint it becomes easier for me, but  I do feel I need more practice yet.

Some of my paintings actualy surprise myself how good them come out and am inspired to do more and more.

I realy enjoy my painting right now... keep checking back for more artwork to be posted.
I entered some of my artwork in the Annual Okeechobee County Fair, in 6 Different catagories  and to My surprise ALL 6 Won an Award Ribbon!!!

First Place was "Jerry Lee" in Watercolor and "Sweet Gardenia" in Graphite Pencil
Second Place was "Little Princess" in Color Pencil, "Blue Iris" in Acrylic and "Troipcal Winds" in Charcoal
Third Place was My Boys

I was so surprised that All 6 won something, I had just hoped for at least one or two to place!!
