Peir, a Guilding Eyes for the Blind "stud"—RIP

Peir died when he was 12 and he is greatly missed by his family. He failed as an actual guide dog but lived a wonderfully happy life as a "stud" for the Guilding Eyes for the Blind Organization. In his 12 years he produced over 50 guiding eye dogs. He was a very happy, friendly dog with a goofy personality. His family claims he had a great sex life...

ahhh - I have one just like him, named Boggie and we often comment that if he were a seeing eye dog he would give a wild 'ride'. I also have a chocolate lab. Quite the characters - Great painting, he is well honored with this.

Hi Jennifer, Thanks for your comments on my blog. I think your work is sensational and feel honoured you took the time to see mine and comment. When I write it is usually just boring stuff about what is going on that day, or that second. Thank you.

Great story....no wonder he was such a happy dog - no work and all frisky play! Lovely painting to remember a joyful friend.
