    Deborah, thank you for your nice compliment and yes my son-in-law loved it. Brought tears to his eyes they were real pals--when Mandy saw the rifles or fishing gear come out she knew it was going to be a fun day.

    Hi and Thanks Greg.......Already planning his Christmas present for next year. They have a Golden Retriever who's now almost three. I'm thinking another one same size, same composition and same type frame. They can be hung side by side in a nice arrangement.
    Hey Happy New Year,
    Kathy

    Hi Mel, thank you.
    My son-in-law and daughter loved Mandy (14 yrs. old) very much and when they had to put her down it broke their hearts. They now have a Golden Retreiver who has helped heal their loss a bit. As with all our pets we make them family and mourn for a long time--if not forever.
    Merry Christmas,
    Kathy

    It came out real nice Kathy I bet he'll love it, if he feels the same way about his dog as I do mine, I know he will.

    Hi Tony, thank you
    It's always a guess when you order online or from a catalog that artwork and frame will be compatable. I think by burning a border around the subject it really helped add depth.
    Merry Christmas,
    Kathy

    Kathy,

    Your frame choice was perfect. Gotta love the "depth" of the piece you created. A tribute to your fine work!

    Smile Hi All:
    I was getting ready to wrap my son-in-laws 'Mandy' when I thought maybe you'd like to see how I framed it.
    I use an Online framing company called 'Graphik Dimensions Ltd.' and have for many years. In case your interested their online address is www.pictureframes.com
    The frame I chose was one of their Town & Country designs which is rustic barnwood. I thought it fit the subject nicely. Can't wait to see my son-in-laws face Christmas morning.
    Merry Christmas,
    Kathy

    Hi Wade, thank you and that's a heck of an idea. Well, lets see Mandy does have a replacement. His name is Luke and he's a big beautiful golden retreiver. OK now how do I cue Luke to give Kent a big lick on the cheek just at the right time? hummm thinking.....
