My painting of these two characters who will foever live in our family's heart

Ben,our springer,brown & white Was our teen-daughter's delight; Bred by the famous Shand-Kydd Causing us to part with fifty quid. He soon grew,chewing lino & chairs Forever racing up our stairs; We'd no idea what he would become This stress-filled harum-scarum. A sporting dog,much too inbred So to the vet,our footsteps led; A day so filled with tears, Engraved upon all our yesteryears. Soon, we were given Bess Collie-cross,black & white,no less; Perfect in temperament,ready to please Walking her,my mind at ease. Each night to her bean bag she crept In the kitchen , cosy,she slept; Welcomed all with wagging tail Without faults,she could not fail. A pet no one would ever trade Her memory now in cross-stitch made; Loyalty of the lasting,loving kind No replacement,were we to find. Copyright © Brian Strand | Year Posted 2008

Your Ben reads like our Hairy, the Chihuahua from Hades(someone put him out at our house and now I know why). Your Bess reads like our Princess that is a wonderful female Chihuahua that is the perfect dog for us. She still doesn't really care for children but our grandchildren are no longer here that much and the two oldest are grown and treat her with respect. Thanks for the honor of placing in your contest.
