This sweet Shih tzu was named Bailey.  She was very dear to her family and I was asked to memorialize her for her human dad for Father's Day. She was 15 when she passed away and was the first "child" for her newlywed parents, then she helped the mom through her two pregnancies and was great with all the children.  Quite the companion!  It was an honor to paint and commemorate her!
