Max And Bella

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.

She Loved Him

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.
