The colorful paintings and whimsical musings of artist Kristy Tracy

My good friends recently had to say goodbye to a very dear member of their family, their chocolate lab, Cooper. Coop was 14 years old (That's 98 in people years!). He loved to swim and hunt and eat and play, but mostly he loved just hanging out with his family. He moved with them from Idaho to Alaska to Arizona and led a full and happy doggie life. Cooper was a great big sweetheart teddy bear of a dog. He will be missed. Having recently lost one of my dogs to old age, I decided to paint a portrait of Cooper so my friends can remember all the good times they had together. I hope it makes them smile.
