Philip has always been a child with an amazing capacity to love openly. He shows affection easily. He especially adores our dogs.
We bought the first dog when Pip was two. He called him Thomas after his beloved tank engines. He intended the name as a tribute to another great love of his life. Eighteen months later, when we bought another puppy to keep Thomas company, it was only logical that he should have the name Percy. Pip has spent many, many hours with his dogs. He used to have a photo of them sticky taped to the door of his bedroom with a caption “legends” written in a childish hand and an arrow pointing to each dog.
They are beautiful, intelligent and well-mannered dogs.
This week, as a requirement for art class, Philip had to choose an interesting photo to use as a basis for a painting. He went looking for a suitable photo of his favourites.
His painting is going to be amazing.
