Chloe belongs to Charlene Lavoie. Charlene heard about the challenge through our mutual friend Sabine.
Here's what Charlene has to say about Chloe:
"This is of Chloe on July 28, 2005 when she just came to us. She was 2 months old and you can see that her ears were beginning to stand up. I took this photo - simply saying her name, she looked up at me.
We decided to get a puppy (we had always rescued) to experience it and because Cody wanted a pal - yes he let us know this, particularly when he tried to befriend the squirrels, chipmunks, skunks, cats and every other creature that happened into the yard.
We met Chloe and her siblings a few days after she was born in May. When she was about a month old, we went into see the bunch and make our selection. There were 10 puppies! A lot of activity...
She came right over to us with no reservation. She had pluck and no fear. And talk about cute... So she was our pick. We brought her home and she and Cody (who was 100 pounds) became fast friends and inseparable.
Our pack was the toast of wherever we went - no collars or leashes, they were trained and behaved and only cared about each other and us so there was never a concern that they would wander away or chase other creatures. Easy with German shepherds. They were a blessing and we miss them both deeply."

Thanks to everyone who have sent me cute dog photos! I'm having a great time painting and hearing about all these sweet companions.
If I get to the end of the challenge and I haven't painted your dog. I will try to continue the challenge until all the dogs are painted and only one dog per owner. I might not be able to paint one everyday... I know I'll need a break at the end of this challenge, but I will keep the dog series going.
Each painting is painted on either 8 x 10 inch or 8 x 8 inch canvas board with quality oil paints and varnished. The price is $140 + (shipping and CT sales tax). Unframed.
with much gratitude,
