Today I wake up... Was it a bad dream?....I here the Birds.... feel the lovely bright day out side... but something is missing....something is different...cant really smile... is it true?

23rd of March 2007, the last 24 hours has bean one of the worst days of our life's, we have lost a best friend a family member that is close to our heart, he lived with us for a beautiful 14 plus years and gave us some of the best years of our lives, it has been a great loss for me and my wife, and we have tried hard to keep him, unfortunately, we live in a country that does not have proper doctors for animals, so... the animals get to suffer...

Coco is my shadow, because everywhere I go, everywhere I sit, everywhere do.....he follows, he always wanted to be around me, unfortunately in last period, I haven't had much time to be with the dogs since I have been always on projects with heavy deadlines & that really breaks my Heart!! But in the last few weeks I have had the privilege of spending more time with our lovely Coco... I am happy that we've given him a long life... I am happy that we have a lot of memories with him, and here is an illustration of how much I have him ingrained in my thoughts... I remember his smile so clearly... and wanted to paint this illustration for the last time....

I would like to thank everyone that supported us ... Rashad and his family, thank you!! And My Lovely wife for taking care of us all and giving us a great happy life, I would say be strong......
to Coco... We will miss you dearly!! and there is nothing that I will say that can describe you enough....nothing, I hope that you are in a better place...and hope to see you one day!! Good bye to my little amazing friend..

Thanks everyone for reading this and allowing me to share these hard moments with you all...

PS.. sorry No 3D here... SOrry

Lovely portrait! It is always sad when a pet dies. Each is so unique in personality that they seem irreplaceable.

Khalid, I'm really sorry to hear that news. I sympathise - the pain of losing 'someone' (and it is...isn't it?) is so upsetting.

Importantly, you have had the pleasure of the memories.

Fantastic work and a real tribute!

I lost a guineapig a few months ago, yeah sounds silly to get sad over that but he had quite the personality, one probably would not fully understand till owning one. It also brought me sadness. It's great that you were able to capture the mood of your dog so you will always remember happy times of the good days of his life. Sorry to hear about your loss, may this picture never let you forget the good times. :thumbsup:

No need to apologize for your hurt and pain, I lost my best buddy 'Bonzo' over a decade ago at Xmas and I still miss him every day, even though we now have a daft old Black Lab called, strangely enough, Shadow.

I always say, enjoy the pain and loss, because it will remind you each day just how much love you shared with Coco, how your life was enriched by his presence. The best way to honour him is to bring another friend into your family and bestow upon him the toys and joys from Coco. I don't think I could ever bear to be without a canine friend ever again.

You should always have you little "Wolf in the living room".

Our thoughts are very much with you.

Best
