Yesterday we had to make the decision to say goodbye to our beautiful lab Samson after trying desperately to save him. He spent 5 nights at the vets and didn't get any better. He had stopped eating and didn't even respond after the first time we visited him. We found him 5 years ago and he had been a street dog for awhile. He was so skinny and was used to begging for food. We took him to our vet and he had a microchip. They contacted the previous owners and they said, "That dog ran away months ago, you can keep him". He was housebroken and had been fixed. He walked on the leash much better than our pedigreed, trained lab, Maggie May! He was so pretty but we all learned that Maggie was the brains of the operation. We called Samson our male model. He still thought of himself as a cute little puppy and would try to actually climb up on people's laps! All 95 pounds of him!Our family and friends will miss him, but I am glad we had him for 5 years and he had a nice life with us!
I seem to have joined the blog party at a very late date, but here I go! I am a lifelong artist who has dabbled in too many art forms to list. I now consider myself a mixed-media/ altered artist who mixes canvas, paper, fabric and paint. I love to use vintage found objects as well as photos in my work. I teach second grade full-time and my husband teaches high school English. I have a 16 year old son at home, a 24 year old in living in CT, two grown stepkids and two lovable yellow labs who think they run the place. I hope to share my art and ideas with like-minded positive people!
