"I wanted to write you to thank you so much for the beautiful portrait of Nautica! When my husband and I got it in the mail we were amazed at how you captured her sweet face and her eyes. I could pick her out of a million chocolate labs and this picture is exactly her face and coat. She was absolutely the best dog. She loved living here in Lake Tahoe and she loved to swim. She actually lived to be 14 and 8 months which is a really long life. Nautica was a very happy girl, and like most labs, she was overly excited. I love that you chose to draw her comfortable and relaxed. I like to think this is how she feels where she is right now, very content. Thank you for honoring her with this beautiful picture."
