Sibling Rivalry

I am a big dog lover of all dog breeds but Labrador Retreivers have always been a favorite of mine. This 14 by 18 acrylic on canvas painting brings back great memories for me. We had a yellow lab, Rachel and her brother a black lab named Barney.
The male outweighed the female by a good 20 pounds but make no mistake when it came time to who was boss Rachel had her way 99 percent of the time. LOL

They loved the water and this photo reminded me of many a day playing fetch the stick. Ahhhhh yes the unconditional love of our pets.

John

Re: Sibling Rivalry

Lovely painting of your dogs. The title is fitting with both having a bit of the stick. It's cute to see.

Re: Sibling Rivalry

Thanks so much everyone for the wonderful comments. I always appreciate them.
Gayle- it was a pleasure to paint something so close to my heart as these guys.
Jim- thanks again Jack Russells as well....my neighbor has one and he is a feisty little guy.
Michelle- thanks again .... these Labs would swim all day if you let them. LOL
DesertRatt- appreciate your comments.... I need to get a frame on this one and get it put up somewhere for a constant reminder of them. Great memories.
Christel-thanks again....yes they were great dogs and showed that unconditional love each and every day.
Merriweather-thanks again...they would play with sticks like this for hours it seems. Never really getting too upset but lots of growling and carrying on. LOL

Hey Ken....thanks so much for the comments. My Male lab would actually try to eat branches and when swimming would dive down and bring rocks up in his mouth. Lol

This is really well done. Even the water has turned out so well and the dogs are excellent.

So typical of the labs I have known too - very nice painting, with special meaning for all dog-lovers!

Re: Sibling Rivalry

Colin- thanks so very much for the wonderful comments. I do love painting animals and of course dogs are such great pets that it made this a fun project.

Hi Maureen- yes labs seem to have endless energy especially where the water is concerned. LOL Thanks again for the comments.
