Puppy love

   I've spent the last couple of days curled up on the sofa drawing with my faithful friend beside me watching my progress. This is him as a youngster. He is now 14 years old but he still knows how to leave paw prints on my heart with those soulful eyes of his.

' Puppy Love ' Pen and ink (10.5 by 7 inches)

Love, they say, is patient,
Love, they say, is kind,
It sees beyond another’s faults
For love, they say, is blind.
Love will not diminish,
Or rush or fade with years,
But it will gain its strength
From time, from laughter, joy and tears.
Love is God’s own gift to us.
A present from above,
He gives us peace, He gives us joy,
But first He gives us love. (Anon)
