Dog Art | Tucker is Watching for Us

If you're reading Talking Dogs blog, then you're a dog lover.  

So, you'll understand.

Our beloved black boy, Tucker, left us in October of last year.  

We still miss him and will forever.  Even though we had 14 years with him, no matter how long our furry family members are with us, it is never enough time.

We often talk about Tucker and how we like to think he's found another giant holly tree or two to shelter him.  And some wild strawberries to munch.   

So, imagine our feelings when we were shopping online and discovered an artist by the name of Todd Young 

Todd is a self-taught artist.  You may have noticed one of his large forest paintings in the movie "I Hate Valentine's Day" starring Nia Vardalos and John Corbett.  You may have seen one of his paintings in the Grand Lobby of the Indiana State Museum.  Or you may have stumbled onto his Etsy shop or his ArtFire shop.

If not, you should.  Because Todd Young loves dogs and they show up everywhere in his work.

The Dog Daddy and I purchased one of his art prints as a Christmas gift to each other this year.  It's called:  The Clearing.

One glance below and you'll understand why.

Yes.  There's our beautiful black boy, Tucker.

Waiting and watching. 

Keeping an eye out.     For us.
