So... Earlier this year (June 4th to be exact) my childhood dog died.
He had been with me since I was very little, and I can hardly remember a time when we didn't have him with us.
He was our Christmas dog.
Dad tells me that my brother and I were barking in the back seat of the car, all the way to get him. And, at a petrol station, a guy said to dad "I think it's about time you bought them a dog, mate"
He was my best friend. He was always there to give me cuddles when I was sad. He stopped me from stepping on a snake once.
I'll never forget him drooling on our shoulders on long car drives. Or curled up between us on the seat.
I'll never forget him running along behind the car as we drove around on sand dunes, or racing Schnaaps down sanddunes.
I'll never forget every christmas, demanding mum and dad let him inside. And him sniffing around at all our presents.
I'll never forget HIM.
So this is a very personal piece, and I request that no one use it, at all, even to promote my art.
This is simply for me.
