So back on April 1st I had to part ways with my awesome hunting partner. My sister-in-law, knowing how devastated I was with this occurrence commissioned a local artist to do an oil painting of him. You will notice the notch out of his tongue. He bit through it while hunting one time. I took him to an emergency vet, but he said there was little he could do. It never seemed to bother him and was part of his character. I find myself missing him even though I have a new puppy that is making strides.
