This is Sailor...

and his best friend Brad.

A few months ago though... Sailor got very, very sick suddenly in the night. Brad rushed him to the ER vet. After being there awhile with no hope of Sailor getting well, the vet asked Brad to make the toughest decision of his life, and sadly had to put poor Sailor to sleep. Brad was so terribly sad. If you knew Brad then you knew that Sailor meant the world to him. The saddest part.... the saddest part of all for me, was reading his sketchbook entry about that night at the vet and about how much his little Sailor meant to him. I was crying so hard that I couldn't even read the entry out loud to Jeff, so he had to read it himself and it brought him to tears as well. So moved by all of that, I discussed with Jeff that maybe a painting of his old friend would be a nice way to commemorate his life. So I did. Here's a pic Brad snapped for me of the painting hanging in his home, since I forgot to take a photo of it before I gave it to him.


  1. awww. I know how Brad feels and it's AWFUL! But sailor was lucky to have had him!
