Arnie

At 9 years of age, Arnie came into my life. He was part of the 'Save Our Seniors' programme through the RSPCA. At over 17 years, he passed away suddenly on September 19th 2013... just before the launch of his book 'Arnie the Artist's Muse. A True Doggie Tail'. He had some problems. Over time he had to have both his eyes removed and an ear canal. But he was happy, he was super intelligent and he was my loving friend and painting companion. He was my Muse. I miss him terribly.

Stomping on his advance copies of the book. And wearing his little hand knitted jumper. Knitted by a friend.

My dear Arnie, just days before he passed away. But he got to stomp on the advance copies of his book! He is 17 years old here.

In the sun with his little red bandanna.

Here he is, strapped in with his little 'Dogue' harness in the car, where he spent a lot of time travelling with me on our road trips. He was my muse and my friend.

My little boy... at Grassy Heads Beach just two weeks before he passed away. He was blind but he had the wind in his fur, the salt air in his nose and he knew he was safe. Run like the wind my little angel. xxxx

Here he is being  a 'Rock Monster'. We were at Eden on the far South Coast (painting again!) and he has eyes here... so he would have been about 10 or 11. He loved a run on the beach.
