My Pup - Picasso
 
I got Picasso when he was eight-weeks old, a few months after my first service dog passed away. I instantly fell in love with his personality, and he's my best friend. 

I started working on this painting when he was about 7 months old and, after beginning the work, I found out that he had a major obstruction in his intestines. It nearly cost him his life. He was holding on by a thread for several weeks, and the fear of losing him propelled me to finish this work before I lost him. Thankfully, he pulled through, but this work means so much to me and I hope you can see my love for him and my passion for art in this painting.
