I came across these sketches of our dear Chihuahua today. We raised Tara from the time she was six weeks old and she was with us for 15 and 1/2 years until she developed a brain tumor and had to be put down. It was a very sad time for the whole family as she had grown up with our children. She thought she was a little person and never was babied, she just took her place among the family and held her own ground. She was never snippy. She loved everyone. We took her everywhere and the sketches were done on a fishing trip where she dozed on the bank while we fished. She was the color of a deer and made you smile just to see her little face. I have photographs of her, too, but was very happy to find my sketches that captured her real look.
