Pencil drawing of Jesus enjoying the companionship of two dachshunds. God created the world and then gave man dominion over it. The beauty, variety, and function of all His creations testifies of His love for us in that they fill and exceed our needs, including that of companionship. “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31)

It was with some reluctance that two young sisters asked me to do this drawing for their mother. At the time, one of their beloved dogs had already died and the other was failing. The love they had for theri pets was evident by their tear-filled eyes, and I accepted their request without reservation. Based on the numbers of this print sold, I believe it reflects the loving bond many have with not only their dogs, but other animals who provide companionship, security, and assistance. When these loyal companions depart this earth, our grief can be minimized by the understanding that they too return to the God who gave them life.
