Missy, our party poodle, was the absolute ‘runt’ of the litter! But, oh what a glitter in her eyes. She held a special place in our hearts for 19 years.

She was but four years old, in 1966, when she sat for hours while this picture was painted – you can even see the tears in her eyes! She was nineteen when the Vet said he had done all he could do for her and that we need to come to the decission to put her to sleep. This was a very painful decission for both of us – for you see she was the child that we never had.

Although she has been gone for 27 years she remains with us in her favorate spot, in the flower garden, in our back yard.
