      "Dignity Earned"

      Aye Mates,

      I did this portrait of an older Labrador Retriever that belongs to a veterinarian friend of mine. T'was me objective to highlight the features that speak of her many years of loyal companionship and of the dignity that older dogs surely have earned. A most special elegance comes with all the greying of their facial features and their sunken eyes that continually track us with focused loyalty. These physical changes serve to remind us that these magnificent animals are never with us long enough and that they seemingly live each moment of their all too short time just for us.

      THE DOG WHISTLER 🍀

      You know how I feel about the seniors.

      Some call it gray, some call it sugar coated. I call it chrome because all the classics have chrome.
