Back in October, I was reading a post on one of my favorite blogs, Old Black Cat Boo, which is written by artist Cindi Myers. Right there and then, I knew exactly what I wanted for Christmas...and here it is:

Now, besides being an artist and working all day at an animal care facility, Cindi has a tribe of animals at home who share her life and love. The antics of Cindi's tribe are often captured in her artwork.
Many of Cindi's stories warm my heart, but sometimes they break it. Losing an animal is something a lot of us never get over, and it makes us hesitant to put our heart out there again. But, unlike me, Cindi is courageous enough to shelter her beloved rescue animals while knowing that, when you take in the neglected and abused among them, loss is a large part of the story.
The post on Cindi's blog that touched my heart was about how her little mutt, Jimmy Chew, had managed to spill the dog food for the "gang" while Cindi was at work. Along with the story was a picture of Jimmy Chew wearing a hoodie.

I cracked up at that innocent face knowing what a scamp he was. Then I asked (OK...maybe begged) Cindi to create a piece of art to capture the "incident" and that hoodie-wearing face.
Hope you'll take a minute to travel over to Cindi's blog and view some of her artwork and enjoy a story or two. You can click here to see how Cindi created this ARTWORK and here is the post on Cindi's blog about Jimmy Chew and the spilled dog food.
