Piet called today to say that he had lost his beloved dog. Evidently she was in a lot of pain & had to be put down. Between this event & some work for his upcoming exhibition, he said he probably won't be posting much over the next day or two.

My Brothers!!!
Time to tell it like it is!!
Firstly, Muddler, thanks for starting the thread!!!!!!! I am quite speechless!
Since the word is out, this is how it is.
I was on my way to put up a thread to say that I will be quiet for a while as I am under huge pressure and on top of it all, my best friend and studio partner was put to sleep at 7:45am this morn. He spent the highs and lows with me in the studio and was around for 11 solo showings, sadly he is missing the 12th.
Laker was 11years old and had a good life! For the record, I am a Huge Dog hugger, at times rather pathetic you may say.

Funny how thing can get real ****** up so quick!!
I have been working 3 jobs, sleeping very little, taken huge media shots and spent very little time asleep. Lakers passing has just taken a huge toll on an already fragile situation. Disappointments have been many and gains have been few of late.
I have spent much time here and appreciate everything you fellows have done for me.

Highlights have been all the packages sent and received from brothers. All of you on the board have become my very good friends.
To my buddy Muddler who has offered an escape from the crazy times and inviting me over to his cave for smokes. Your friendship is deeply valued in more ways you would imagine.
My good friends, Falconer, Nitschke, Ron, Dover, Velveteagle, JP, SP, FTRPLT, Yak, Bruins, Gandalf, Pete, Mister E and all the others I fail to mention, you dudes Rock!!!!

Please excuse if I am a tad on the quiet side, I am around for sure!!!!
I may just be a little slow at getting to my PM's and posts for now.
Fear not, Bro's I will keep you all in the loop and you will be the first to see the new work online mid next week.

Bring it on!!!!!!
P.s. Valky and Nitschke, I smoked more good baccy in Ser Jac's today than I have in 42 yrs of my life!!!!
Thanks Bro's

BOB you are saluted.


cheers cheers cheers

Wow Piet... all the best to you. I've grown so attached to my dog (I mean my grandson's doggie Rolling Eyes ). Thoughts are with you, and you know all of us here have you in our hearts and minds.

Blessings,

So sorry to hear of your pooch's passing - huge dog lover myself with a very aged pooch - been attempting to contact the devil for some time now so I can make a deal to keep the old gal around forever...

Hang in there - I'm sure the world has better times in store for you soon

Piet, extremely sad for your loss especially at what sounds like a stressful time already. Passing of a long-time friend and companion like that can be worse than the passing of a human friend. Dogs are with us so much during their relatively short lives. My Rose is going to be 11 this spring and I know her time will be sooner rather than later, I can't bear to think of it.

I'm sorry, Piet. I lost my own dog a few months ago and still miss her at the weirdest moments. It is a strange feeling coming up the lawn without that old girl greeting me enthusiastically. Losing a loyal friend, even if it is a furry one, is incredibly sad.

Peter, I'm sorry to learn of your loss. Our animal friends are so much more than just pets - friends, always happy to see us, loving even when our mood is in the dumps, a real comfort in life. Like my former boss told me - the best cure for a woman is another woman, the same thought applies to dogs as well. Take comfort in your many memories of hours spent together.

Piet, I'm so sorry for your loss. Having been through it far too recently, and being an unabashed dog-hugger myself, I can empathize. They give so much, and ask for nothing but a little love in return. There are very few things in life as sad as losing our furry friends.

My best,
Greg
