      My Husband's Christmas Gift

      A few months ago I posted about an auction being held by Labrador Life Line in which you could place bids to win a hand painted portrait of your dog. In addition, the 6 winning portraits would be used as a label on wines that were then sold to benefit LLL. Unfortunately, the wine company is apparently closing and I had to order before it was too late. I don't know how this will affect future auctions. Anyway...

      I won my bid and the very talented artist Naomi Ochiai painted a portrait of our boy Chase, who died last summer. It was to be my husband's Christmas present so I hadn't posted it here before, just in case for some unimaginable reason my husband checked out the lab board without my prompting! I had it framed and ordered some wine to give him. Now I can share it. It is more than I imagined and he is very pleased, too!
