I'm super excited to share today's painting (...have I mentioned I love beagles?!). Also, dog-mom Lealie is a friend from my university days.
Today's I'm featuring Dylan (on the left) and Chole (on the right)- have a pretty unique story among this challenge. They were both beagles adopted from a local university, where they were used as vet training dogs. Laelie shares the following story:
"Both dogs were well cared for, but more lab rat than dog when we brought them home. Now, Dylan's tail literally never stops wagging although he is so stubborn if he decides that he's walked long enough he'll flop onto his back and have to be carried or dragged home. Chloe has gone from afraid of her shadow to the most loveable and patient companion a toddler could imagine - and Ben pushes those limits daily"
Thanks so much for sharing Laelie!.. Dylan and Chloe were so lucky to find such a good life and home.
I also have to say it is great that this University adopts out the dogs when they are no longer needed. Check out the Beagle Freedom Project an American Organization dedicated to rescuing and finding homes for beagles used in laboratory research.
I believe art is meant to be shared. I am a Canadian landscape painter that works primary in oils & acrylics. I create works both en plein air & in the studio.
