'Joey' and 'Maggie' on canvas in front of Frankenmuth Dachshund
Continuing on with yesterday's theme of being taken back by the kindness of people, one day last April we got a package in the mail from our good pals 'Turbo' and 'Lily,' two long dogs who work closely with and volunteer a lot of their time for MidWest Dachshund Rescue. We had no idea a package was coming from them, and when we opened it, we were absolutely shocked at the beauty inside: itty bitty paintings of your 'Long and Short of it All' hosts 'Joey' and 'Maggie,' complete with itty bitty easels to display them on. Apparently Turbo and Lily had a relative (we apologize that we can't read the artist's name on the back), paint several small paintings to be sold at MWDR's big "Cross Town Bark Around" Fundraiser in May. In the process, two special paintings were created for Joey and Maggie, and they are just beautiful. Joey's is great, and Maggie's is just awesome - the artist really captured Maggie's "look" - that wonderful "glare" that she gave Dad when she was tired of getting her photo taken, or any time her dinner was a few minutes late. Again, these will be something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Turbo and Lily!
