Jazz, Wise Old Pooch.

Our boy Jazz.
At the end of July, our family went through one of the toughest things possible... losing our cherished labrador dog, Jazz.
Jazz would have been 12 years old this year; he was more than just a pet to us - he was like a brother and son in a dogs costume - he was a wise, gentle natured dog, huge heart and eyes that made you melt; and he was a constant guardian of us all.
We miss him so very much.
To keep his memory alive, I decided to get a portrait of him done by a very talented American artist Manda Wolfe - her Etsy store - her work is fun, colourful and out of the norm of "standard portraiture" and that is what drew me to her talent.
We are all amazed with how Manda has captured Jazz in the portrait, his eyes are spot on and when we look at it, we feel a bit of heart-warming comfort.
A loving thankyou to Manda for her incredibly understanding and sweet customer service, topping off a truly beautiful portrait.

I'm so sorry that you lost your beloved pooch :( A few years ago my 12-year-old dog died too and it was heart wrenching, so I can imagine how you're feeling at the moment. That's such a gorgeous portrait, what a nice thing to remember him by :)
