How can I refuse Max and Bella?
They love and are loved by Paulette who hangs out over at The Persecution Of Mildred Dunlap.
They asked if I ever did any of my little ‘cartoons’ of furry friends. I was honored that they referred to my shadow people as ‘cartoons’. They are super kind to me.
I have only done one sketch of furry friends. And there’s a bit of a back story. First, I don’t have pets. I know that I am not home enough to properly care for anyone I would bring home to fill my life. I would be leaving the little fella (because it would be a dog) more than I would be with him. And I don’t see the point in doing that to anyone. Furry or non-furry I’ve seen too many of both left alone. And it’s sad.
But in my line of work I come in to contact with many people who’s main source of love and acceptance, is their furry friend. There’s a whole lot of commentary to say about us as people regarding this. But for now, I’ll say that it’s a blessing for many people to be loved by a pet. And it’s a blessing for many pets to have someone love them.
One of my co-workers had worked with someone who lost their elderly dog. And it was very sad to think of her without her buddy. I went home that night and this popped out of my pen.
So, Max and Bella, for you. And for all of your friends and relatives who make a difference in someone’s life. Here you go. With much appreciation. You are valued, needed, and loved.
