Shilo - The Dog that Literally Saved My Life

 A Tribute to an Old Friend
This is a 16x24 ink wash and crayon drawing 
of our old puppy Shilo.  She died in the spring 1997 a the old age of 14.  A collie / shepherd mix she was a treasure of a dog.

She was with Carri and I through our entire marriage and unfortunately was only around for two and one half short years after Charis was born so they barely got to know each other.

She was loving, loyal and a true companion and trusted friend.  She accompanied us on many trips all over the Northwest.  She loved the beach but was not to fond of the water. :)

We miss you Shilo!

Opposite is the photograph that was the inspiration for this drawing.  Her usual spot in the back of the pickup.
