Some may recall Sue Chrestensen having to put her dog (shitzu), "Lil Bit" down in March of this year. Sometimes the hardest drawings/cuttings to complete are the ones that mean the most to me.

Some time ago I had taken photos of our new shop dog "Java" (shitzu) and created the pattern titled "Lil Bit Java" for this plaque for Sue. Today was a snow filled day... the kind that felt right for cutting this piece.

It's odd how things turn out sometimes. The look on Java's face resembled Lil Bit enough to create the pattern from her photo ... the pattern waited for the right time to cut it.... and then when photographing it, the light slipped ... giving this mischevous dog the most angelic appearance.

Take care
Toni

G'day Toni,
That's nice.
Not many things bring a tear to my eye, but that did.

Good stuff Toni. I looked up "friend" in my dictionary and saw it means "to be like Toni Burghout."

Very nice, Toni. Lil Bit DOES look like an angel in your cutting.

Wish I'd said what bearfretworks did.

Now thats a thought, Beary. I looked up friend in my dictionary and it said. or read, companion, buddy, chum, comrade, homeboy,"girl" , pal, and whoo playmate, and this is Toni,well-wisher. then the next one was. sociabale,affectionat,amicabale, buddy-buddy,close familiar, helpful, intimate, neighborly, on good terms, pally, sympathetic, and welcoming...then there was friendship...googwill, affection, amity, attachment, concord, familiarity, friendliness, harmony, an intimacy
I can see where she is all the ubove. your friend Evie

this is my descreaption, a friend in need, is a friend indeed, but a real friend is also a friend who need me. Evie

G'day Evie,
My description is a little bit different.
A friend is some one you call to bail you out when your in trouble, a real mate is sitting right beside you saying,"Hell that was Fun"

your mate
