This portrait is of our dear departed dog Heidi. She was very friendly, affectionate and gentle, talkative and had a big body wag. A quietly confident brave heart, on more than one occassion she failed to submit to an aggressive dog twice her size, and we had to intervene. S he was very energetic and loved to swim, retrieve, run, explore and engage her amazing senses on our daily walks together. A familiar haunt was the Wairau River and we travelled with her everywhere.

Back in the early days I adopted her from the Bay of Islands S.P.C.A. We thought she was pawfection. She passed away peacefully in 2017 at the age of 16.
