The Night Before Christmas

Did I ever tell you how fortunate I am to know some wonderful dogs and their owners?
Kendi is another jack russell who has beaten cancer, just like my Missy.
I have a very soft spot for her - even though her mom Michelle does dress her up!

Of course, if she hadn't, I could never have painted this picture :)
and between you and I, Kendi enjoys it! Soppy dog ...

The Night Before Christmas


Celebrating Kendi and Missy, the dogs who lived!
Merry Christmas, Michelle and Kendi
Love, Pat and Missy xx

  5. Not being an animal owner myself, unless you count the goldfish I've had, I could never understand it when people would dress their dog in some get up. Is it weird or is it just me? Love the painting Pat, and cheers to Missy's good health!

  9. Thanks, Crystal. Glad you love it!

    Difficult one Dora. Missy is long coated so would never need one, Kendi is short coated and lives in NYC. How cold do your winters get? So she needs a coat, might as well be fashionable. Glad you love the painting:) xx

    Thanks, Ann. Would make a lovely card, wouldn't it? :) xx

  15. Kendi reminds me very much of my 'Russell' Sally. That's a lovely painting Pat and I agree with Anne, it would make a lovely card. ;-)

  23. Dressed up as a gift? How cute!!! I love this fun Christmas painting. Looks like a Christmas card to me.

    Amy used to dress her dog up but she is good about not doing that anymore...with the exception of hair barrettes.

  32. Hi All. Thank you for your kind words about my Kendi! She is certainly a gift from Heaven. And yes, it is weird when people dress dogs up. AS Pat said, it does get cold and Kendi has something called "Urticaria". She is allergic to the cold! She gets hives if it is under 30 degrees outside. SIGH. Anyway, we are lucky she LOVES her clothing. She stands in front of the closet and cries for sweaters. :) Thank you again to Pat for including Kendi in one of her AMAZING paintings. I love you Pat.
