Aunty Ami and our wonderful painting

This is hard to believe really but PL1 and 2 had dogs before us....The dog right before us was called Reggie and he was a Welsh Terrier..........
He was named after Reggie Jeeves from PG Wodehouse (our names come from Wodehouse as well!)
He was a great pup we are told and beloved by all.......
LOOK there is he doing the SAME THING WE DO!!!!!!
He slept JUST LIKE ARCHIE!!! In fact sometimes Archie acts JUST LIKE REGGIE!!!! And he was naughty like Arch as well( on the frig there is a half eaten $20 dollar bill. figure it out)

He loved to sit where I sit and look out and people called him the Mayor of the street...

See the upper right picture of him?? That was PL1+2's favorite picture of him. It was a lovely day and they had had a lovely walk and life was good. You could see it in his eyes. So when PL1's birthday came around PL2 thought it would be nice to get Aunty Ami paint that picture for PL1.... because Aunty Ami paints the most beautiful pictures in the world.... And PL2 had her send it to her downstairs neighbor so PL1 wouldn't see it.. And when PL2 went downstairs to open it with her neighbor there(who also loved Reggie) they both cried when they opened it because it was like he was right them again with them.....and he had that wonderful look in his eyes.. she got it just right.....

They haven't framed it yet because they are trying to get just the right frame......But they feel like like he is back home with them... and that makes them and us very happy. Thank you Aunty Ami,from the bottom of our hearts.

Of course you understand that our Mom got leaky eyes when she imagined the PLs' opening the package. The painting is perfect -- Reggie looks like he could bark hello right then and there.

We are so lucky to have Aunt Ami with her amazing talents.

(Mom had her paint the picture you see on our blog for Dad's barkday -- truly the best gift ever!)

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Wow, such a wonderful painting of Reggie! Auntie Ami does such wonderful work. Actually we haven't framed any of our paintings from her. They have the nice wood frame backing and they hang fine with that. We're happy you have the painting of Reggie!

It's so good...we hadn't seen the other pix of Reggie before, so we didn't actually "know" him but it's sooooooooooooooooo bootiful!!

Oh, we adore it...what a handsome kid he was...and we love how he sat in the same places as you kids...not one of us has ever sat on the back of a sofa...he musta whispered to ya what a great view that is...

I love that puppy pic of him...those Welshies look like such little black and tan moppies...

Hope PL2 is having a good day at workie!
