Pal and Mindy playing in the snow. Min (black and brown) died a year ago last month, and when I saw =cypherx
's best friends contest I immediately thought of my puppy and her best friend Pal.
Pal is my mom's dog, and since she lives hundreds of miles away, he and Mindy didn't get to see each other very often. When they were together, they nearly burst with happiness and played hard right up until it was time to go home again. For days afterward, they both moped around their houses, miserable from missing each other.
I miss her, and at times there were tears running down my face as I painted this. But as I look at it now, all I can do is smile. She was such a happy girl
