It's an oil painting and it has a lot of meaning to both mom and dad.
Mitch was born on November 24th so that means that on Christmas Eve he was one month old and most probably spent Christmas in a cage at some puppy mill. We HOPE he was with his mom and sisters and brothers but we don't know any of these facts - we can only suppose. Obviously mom and dad can't change history but in their hearts they can! We didn't get Mitch until he was 4 months old so there's an empty gap.
So the painting of the Airedale puppy that's safe and warm and happy and loved means a whole lot to them! They want the puppy in this painting to be Mitch when he was much younger.
Mom and dad explained to Mitch that even if he didn't have the greatest start to his young life, they were going to make it up to him from now on!
I think Mitch was quite touched!
So we have two more things to celebrate this Christmas, one, that mom has a beautiful new painting for our family room walls - thank you so much dad!And two, that Mitch has a safe, warm and loving home forever and ever! We sure wish that this could be true for all pups that don't have their forever homes! They should all be as lucky as my brother, Mitch is!
So until next time.....................
Love ya lots,
