Lynn, Bertie, Pia- 16 x 20


DOG STORY- Bertie and Pia
Lynn's pups, Bertie (the dark one) and Pia, are of as different personalities as is black and white! ha ha. Both were rescued from shelters in Chicago. Bertie had kennel cough, was a mere eight pounds, and was sickly. It took three weeks for the shelter to give her up- they kept telling Lynn that she should take a different dog as Bertie's prognosis was not good. Lynn maneuvered and persevered until she got the dog. Bertie is smart, yappy, sparkly, and can jump straight up to a counter top from a dead stand. She is like a very bright hyperactive 13 year old girl, talking a mile a minute and jumping from subject to subject. If a warning snarl is ineffective, she will bite anyone who dares to approach her if she is sitting on Lynn's lap.
Pia, Ms. Love herself, is a new age spirit, calm and nuturing. If she were a person she would offer you a cup of tea and tell you to relax and breathe. When Lynn saw her at the shelter, Pia looked directly into her eyes and smiled as if she had been waiting for her. That did it. Now when Lynn returns from a trip, Pia appears to say- "We have so much to catch up on!"
