A while ago The Five Sibes had a giveaway on their blog. The prize was a portrait by Kathleen of
Kat 'n Kanine.
We didn't know about the giveaway because it came at a time when we were still trying to deal with the loss of Samba and Sky. However, our friends at the Op Pack won. Phantom, Ciara, Lightning and Thunder would make wonderful subjects for a portrait either individually or as a group.
Then we received an email that brought on tears. The Op Pack gave us the portrait to serve as a memorial to our lost pack mates. I contacted Kat and sent her some photos. I couldn't choose between Samba and Sky, so I told her to choose one and surprise me. She certainly surprised me, because she put them together in the portrait. We received it this week and it's wonderful so I want to share it with you.
This will hang in a special spot with portraits of some of our other dogs. It was a very lovely gift and serves to remind me yet again how caring and giving and supportive bloggers can be.
