Betty. A Dogs Tale
Four years after I lost my little dog Ralf who had helped me through the most difficult time of my life, I finally decided to get myself another dog and in October 2019 I found my little puppy. She is a Shih Tzu, Maltese, Bichon cross and was jet black with a small bit of white on her face and on her back legs. She was very small and fluffy. By the time she was 12 months old she was nearly all grey with some small patches of black. We used to go to Janet and Steve’s Art studio to paint every Wednesday morning but in April 2020 during the lock down with Covid-19 we could no longer do this, so myself and a dear friend and Art teacher Marie Beleski (Gallagher) decided to write some things about Betty using our original paintings as illustrations for part of the book. That’s how we ended up writing the first book about Betty. We had a lot of fun painting and drawing and a lot of graphics on the computer as well were all put together to make this wonderful book. It took us until September 2020 to com-plete the book.
