Tonight I spent some time working on a piece of a dear pup who was with us for far too short a time. These sketches are of Indy, Ginny’s pup born with a cleft palate. She needed incredibly specialized care to have a chance at life, and was transferred to the Mia Foundation, a wonderful organization that deals specifically with pups with disabilities. She thrived under their amazing care, but sadly succumbed to a complication of her deformity and passed on. She is still remembered fondly by everyone at Handsome Dan’s and at the Mia Foundation, and I will be doing a larger piece to donate to the 2nd Annual Walk for Mia fundraiser to benefit the Mia Foundation and all of the great work they do. Keep an eye out for posts about the final piece!
