Goodbye My Baby Jo

My little toy poodle Jo had to be put down Friday the 19th. Even though I had her only a little over a year and a half, I was so close to her that I am stumbling around trying to figure out what I will do without her. She was such a tiny little thing at 8 lbs. I don't know what happened to her but she had lost 3.5 lbs which was 1/3 of her body weight. And she was anemic. I decided not to do testing as I would not have the money to treat her if it was cancer or kidney problems which the doctor suspected. And she seemed to be in pain so I let her go. Now to figure out how to let her go in my heart.

April Challenge

I have set a new challenge for myself. I will be doing an animal a day for April. I have completed 2 today to catch up. The first is graphite, watercolor, and colored pencil. The second one is graphite. Both are 4x6 inches. The dog and dog house reference is from Google street view in Bulgaria. The cat is from a reference from Wetcanvas RIL by *Jessica*.
