Tina - My German Shorthair Pointer

This the other pointer sister in my life, Tina. She was literally a "found" dog my husband found on the side of the road near our house half-starved and unable to hold herself up. Her hip bones looked like they were going to tear through her flesh. We don't quite know how old she is, we think she might be about nine now, her muzzle is turning whiter and whiter although I didn't paint her muzzle quite white in this painting of her.

Judy this is a magnificent painting! I always wonder how people can be so cruel to animals and children, but luckily there are people like you to rescue some of them.

Judy!! Love this. She is quite the protector too isn't she? Give her a scratch on the belly from me. Thanks again for your encouragement and advice.
