Cassie was a Shetland Sheepdog and my childhood pet/best friend. She was super intelligent and loved me very much. As a child, I wasn’t always the best dog owner in the world, but she was the best dog. She put up with everything I did to her from making her wear silly costumes to teasing her.
The above picture is dog art which I drew a few years after her death. A print of this dog art is available at http://www.naturebydawn.com/product/P-0001P. She died when she was thirteen years old and I was twenty three. I still think about her a lot and miss her very much.
