About the Dogs
Dillon and Timmy are my childhood puppies.
I was nine-years-old when my border collie Dillon came into our lives, a little girl wanting the border collie puppy in the pet shop in preference to the guinea pig. Thankfully, my parents were in full agreement! I had fifteen wonderful years with Dillon. I was obsessed with tennis balls and loved pulling husks off coconuts. I was a very grown up twenty-four when I saw he was struggling, loaded him in the car, and took him to the vet. I called my mum and brother and Dillon went peacefully on Remembrance Day.
Timmy was Dillon's little brother. Mum and I found Timmy in the pet shop when I was thirteen. We called my dad and brother to come collect him. Timmy had a wonderful fourteen years with us and was mum's cuddle bub. He would sneak into my bed and wake me while trying to snuggle. He loved playing and was a wonderful uncle to my border collie Jacob by teaching him how to chase rats! Timmy was diagnosed with masses in his liver, we loved him for a few more days, and he peacefully went with everyone who loved him by his side wrapped snug as a bug in his favourite blanket.
I spent the last few nights of Timmy's life creating this painting so that my mum could see her two long-time boys playing together in heaven forever.
In the painting, there are coconut palms and the tennis balls grow on trees. Dillon is very happy to welcome Timmy.

Art is a new love of mine. I love creating vibrant, visual pieces of art to brighten up my - and other peoples! - home. While I've always loved being creative with words and dance, I've never been a visual artist. But now, I'm so excited to be exploring this new hobby.
