Bye bye Biddy

Today was a somber day at our house. Cody was in yet another Pig Hunting competition this weekend so was out hunting with mates into the wee small hours of the morning.
We awoke this morning to the sad news that our beloved Bid had been killed by a pig.
Bid was Cody's pride and joy, and like all of the animals that venture into our life, was a much loved pet by all of us. She has spent the afternoon's tucked up on bed with Andrew these past few weeks,while Andrew has been recovering from a pressure area.

This is not a great photo, but it gives a pretty good picture of the close bond between Cody and his dogs. Bid is dog whose face is up against Cody's.

This is Bid in her early days...last year. She had a very short life Bid only made it to 14 months of age.

Here is our Biddy again, (photo taken just last weekend) doing what she loved , hunting.
Even with the protection of her wide neck safely collar, and her tracking collar (that insured she would never be lost in the wilderness) a pig still managed to stick its tusk deep enough into her throat to kill her.

Bye bye Biddy. We will all miss you xoxo

I'm sorry to hear your Biddy has gone! I wish you a lot of strength for the loss! It's always sad to loose a friend!

Oh Soyna! Tears in my eyes reading about your loss :( I'm so very sorry...our pets are such a special and important part of our lives, big healing hugs to you and your son. And don't forget it's okay to grieve even if some say she was "only" a dog. Hugs...

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
