Title: A Portrait of Gerald

Artist: Sheila Michael

Medium: Colored Pencil on Grafix

Dimensions: 16.5" x 13.5" (framed)

Animal Depicted: Gerald

Last year, this little beagle came to us sooo skinny. His paws were open and infected, he had gaping wounds, and bone was exposed. We will spare you the before photos. His wounds smelled horrible when he came in, so he went directly into emergency care.

Gerald went through a lot during his journey to recovery. He had to have a leg amputated and was diagnosed as fecally incontinent.

You would never know it, though. After recovery, he came to live upstairs in a staff member's office. He made so many furry friends and got to go to play groups daily, where he romped hard with the best of 'em.

Even though he was perfection, we knew finding a family willing to manage his special needs might be tough, but miracles happen here every day. Gerald was adopted by an incredible family that fell in love with him, unconditionally. Not a dry eye in the house that day.

Recently, Gerald crossed the rainbow bridge. Although this news saddened us deeply, we found the beauty in him being with his forever family, enveloped in love, and finally home.
