Artwork Description

“Our dog, Smallwood, is the center of interest. He was mostly Labrador retriever, but his grandmother was a Newfoundland, so he was big – 110 lbs. We got him as a puppy, and he grew up with our children. The memories of Smallwood are the memories of my young family. Of course, he was always my companion on daily walks. His nose and ears drew my attention to many aspects of nature I would have overlooked. His enthusiasm and devotion were boundless. Obviously, he always wanted to be with us; we were his pack. It therefore seemed as though if he were inside he wanted to be out, if he were outside he wanted in. Someone defined a door as something a dog is always on the wrong side of . . . in his opinion. ”
