My good friend Bill, asked me to carve Rusty’s name on this cross.
It was one year to the day that Rusty passed away.
Rusty was Bill’s son’s dog, but ever since Bill retired,
he would go visit Rusty, & they made their daily walk a ritual.
There’s been a vacant spot in Bill’s heart ever since Rusty passed away.
I asked Bill if it would be all right, for me to carve a relief of Rusty.
He didn’t have a picture of quite the pose I needed.
Not being an artist myself, I searched Google for an image of a Golden Retriever,
& found this one, which was just what I needed.
You can see more pictures of this project in My Blog.
