I have a oil painting which has Gordon Ligtfoot signed on the back. Does anyone know if he painted or perhaps his father did. The frame looks like it could have been from his fathers time as opposed to Gordons. I am just guessing about that. So if anyone knows someting about this I would be very interested. Thanks and have a great day!

There was an English painter named Maxwell Gordon Lightfoot 1886-1911. Someone was selling a painting by him on eBay recently.

How awful Al, I have lost some marvelous friends myself. It is horrible without them. A dog just loves unconditionally and no matter how long you've been gone they are happy to see you. I have a 17 year old Blue Heeler that is having some problems and every morning before I get up I hope she is still here. To lose Deacon unexpectedly must be so hard for you. My sympathies to you.

Oh, Al, I'm so sorry! I remember the pain of losing my beloved poodle that I'd had since I was a kid (he was 21 when he died). I was grateful, however, that Robbie no longer had to suffer with fits and blindness. You will always have the wonderful memories of your dog to treasure.

He was an inside dog and very sick for the latter years of his life, but, my dad wouldn't put him to sleep. Finally, he had to. I understood the necessity, but, I was angry all the same. It soon passed. The poor dog was suffering.
