Cody was a beautiful German Shepherd I was fortunate to meet one day during our long very hot summer this 2017 year. With days over 40 degrees celsius every day for over two weeks during January, her owner Samantha our admin lady, brought her into the office at our pleading so she could enjoy air-conditioned comfort. Sadly less than two weeks later she was dead due to a twisted bowel and with her advancing years and poor outcome even with surgery – she left our lives.
We all felt terribly ripped off as she was such a joy and I offered to paint a portrait of her for the owner. She sent me two photos by email. One of the regal Cody resting on the lawn and the other of her eldest son Jay (Cody’s best friend) embracing her.
Naturally I love animals and children together so the decision was easy.
