Over 4 years ago now, I picked up this picture down in Arizona, north of Phoenix. I found it in a thrift store. This was all during the time my husband Mark and I were in the area to have Mark receive a new type of therapy for his kidney cancer....called tomotherapy, a more precise radiation of tumors. We were staying in a beautiful little town north of Phoenix in the foothills called Carefree. I had brought this into the antique store to sell, but decided to take it back home. I don't know if it is just the picture itself or knowing that I had bought it during a time that Mark was still alive....I just don't know. As I was taking pictures, and I wish I had taken one of the black framing as it is simple but beautiful....anyway, it is amazing the different coloring and how it seems to change this dog. I have shown it to people and they also think it looks like a dalmatian, but the wording or name makes me think it is suppose to be one of those "racing" greyhounds. Either way....I like the picture and decided I wasn't ready to part with it. Someone lovingly drew it in chalk and I think did an amazing job......just being weird!
