My tiny Shelley painting

A few months ago I was happy to join in on Elisa's challenge to help Animal Rescue of Fresno and she had a fun giveaway for those donating to the cause. And lo and behold I won the grand prize, a tiny painting by nrLois. I had the choice of a random painting or one done from a picture of one of my own pets. I chose Shelley, the Sheltie, who we lost last November. And here is the last photograph I have of Shelley in October and next to it the Tiny Painting nrLois painted from the picture.
I love it! She captured Shelley in a free form style and I will cherish this forever.

Shelley, my most loved canine companion, I miss here still every day. And she has instilled in me that I will have to have another Sheltie, sooner than later.

Thank you Elisa and nrLois!


  1. What a lovely keepsake for you.

  2. A great momento!

  3. What a lovely tribute to your Shelley. We've never had a Sheltie but considered the breed last year. Instead, a boxer found her way to our home, which was truly "meant to be". She mothered our little house lamb, Blossom, as if she were one of our own. Pooches are such a part of the family. I hope that there will be another Sheltie out there for you soon.

    such a special little reminder of your little sweetheart ... I was looking for a dark blue-merle sheltie to be my "carriage" dog ... & wound up with a black-tri corgi ... so it was always a treat to visit with Shelly. ~ m.
