The animals that Todd honors in art are integral parts of people’s lives: They are best friends, treasured companions, lifetime pets. We can tell you how much a custom portrait means to recipients, but no one can tell the story of their furry friend and how an original portrait honors them better than the people who love them most.
Rusty is a playful pup who loves a good romp. When Rusty became part of the family, Keith wanted to honor the new dog’s important place in their pack with a custom dog portrait. And he wanted to make sure Todd captured a few of Rusty’s unique features, including a tail named after a certain famous person. Watch Keith to find out more!
Todd’s latest portrait was one very special dog, Kingston Another Lucky Dog. Just another unadoptable dog with many medical issues, dumped at a high kill shelter when he came into his rescue mom’s life. Sadly Kingston is now at the bridge but his life lessons are still with us. From Kingston’s last will and testament.
“The last item in my will, my last possession, is the love I leave behind. Please bestow it on the pets abandoned without hope or kindness.
Today, I am officially retired at the bridge. I have loved all my people who have been with me in recovery and through death. Mom may write a book or not, Stick will continue to grow and all of you wonderful people will continue to be kind and understand the strength of being kind. It is not a weakness. My Facebook page will remain for visitors and memories, but it is time to thank all of you for following. It has been such an honor to have you by my side, from abuse and neglect, degenerative myelopathy, struggles at the end, and leaving. I am a blessed dog. Abandoned and starving and then having such wonderful encouragement. I remember trying to find food and water and being so sick, and then at the end, I did not want to go, but my body said otherwise. I will see all of you later, of that have no doubt. Death is a burden and a blessing. It eclipses all day to day events, and then once understood, is just anticipation of meeting again. I love each and everyone of you.
Until later, ? Kingston at the Bridge”
