I dedicate this site to Auto, a grand gentleman, who lived to be 18 years old.

Welcome to my website! Please have a look around and feel free to email with any questions or ideas. I'd be happy to work with you to create an intimate and accurate portrait of your pet.

Tribute to a Dog

The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blows and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be by his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wound and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens"

Senator George Vest, 1870
