Vinster, Our Beloved Vinnie

8x10" Staplebacked Canvas
with Painted sides.
A Nickname for Our Beloved Vinnie.
This adorable little guy was our
companion for 13 of his 15 years, untill
he lost the battle with his heart condition
this past September.
Sharing his time with us he was a great
little brother for approx. 6 months
when we first adopted him back in 1996.
As well as a loving big brother during his last
Two and a half years while ill, to our
Sweet little Yorkiepoo, Piper by teaching him
all of his good and bad habits.
We surely miss this guy and we will
cherish this portrait forever,
As it holds ALOT of memories.
He now plays at the Rainbow Bridge!

Close Up of the painting:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially
close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special
friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine,
and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are
restored to health and vigor.
Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and
strong again, just as we remember them in our
dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for
one small thing; they each miss someone
very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes
when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent.
His eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run from the group,
flying over the green grass,
his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and
your special friend finally meet,
you cling together in joyous reunion,
never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face;
your hands again caress the beloved head, and
you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet,
so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
