I am thrilled. My painting of Nigel Buggers that was auctioned for A Place to Bark last week was given to Nigel's Two-Legger, otherwise known as "The Author," by the winning bidder. Some of Nigel's biggest fans pooled their resources to help this wonderful cause, and then gave the painting to the people who would love it best in the whole world.
I am so touched at their thoughtfulness, and the money they raised. This was such a wonderful experience to be a part of. Dogs, and dog rescue, mirror our very best qualities. I would say that's why we love them so.
When I first contacted "Mr. Author" about painting the infamous Nigel for a charity auction, he was extremely helpful and as enthusiastic as I was. He is both an eloquent and hilarious asset to the dog world, (I know Nigel is laughing because I said "asset") and the story of this painting couldn't have had a happier ending...
