Life as a Pickle

Pickle is a fifteen something year old Rat Terrier, that's a whole lot of years in human years.Let's just say Pickle has lived long enough to see the world for what it is...he has shown us great wisdom,laughter and most of all the importance of enjoying this gift we call life.

How it all started....

This is a sample drawing of how Jeannine and I collaborated on making the drawings for Pickle's blog. We would talk about what had happened in that day's event and she would would roughly sketch out or write out her ideas and I would reinterpret visually or try to simplify the idea in drawings. Folks, thanks for dropping by every now and then on this blog....I know I haven't posted much since Pickle passed on but this will be our last post so in closing.... THANK YOU...THANK YOU VERY MUCH.....

Remembering Pickle

Our Good friend Ronnie Williford sent us this drawing he had done of Pickle. Ronnie is a brillant artist and really captured Pickle's personality. He also sums it up really well how Pickle has touched us.

"Hey Guys,

Was visiting the Pickle blog yesterday and found the note on Pickle passing on Dec. 8th. We are both so sorry about that. What a little icon he had become. I know pets are supposed to die and that he in particular was pretty old to begin with, but it crushes my heart anyway. You know, soldiers die overseas everyday, presidents, movie stars and singers have all died this Xmas, and all I care about is the passing of a hacking, farting loaf of gray hair and bad breath. Thanks for letting us share in his world. You guys did a great job watching over him for his autumn years... I guess it's time he watch over you now for awhile. "

Over the Rainbow....

Dear Friends,

On Dec. 8 our beloved Pickle passed away in his sleep.
We rescued and adopted Pickle from a shelter in Florida almost five years ago now. He was an old dog that no one wanted because of his health and age . We saw otherwise and knew that everyone deserves a second chance.
I believe Pickle knew this as well...he wasn't willing to call it quits just yet. He had so much to say literally and so much love to give. He gave us five wonderful years.
He became my muse and my best friend...I'm glad I started this blog for him when we did, I guess I knew time was of the essence. I know that Pickle will always be with us...his memory will live on in the works that we do.

We love you Pickle....

Pres and Jeannine

( As a tribute to Pickle, we will post this one last picture of him. We will be back next year to continue his work. God bless you all and a Happy Holidays to everyone...let's all pray for PEACE in the coming year!!!)

The Man who planted trees....

I had done a previous blog called "The dog who planted trees", based on my favorite animated short and my favorite animator Frederic Back. My good friend Charles Solomon suggested I send the drawing to Frederic and I gladly did so. This drawing was sent back to me from Frederic as a response.....I almost fell over when I saw it. It is truly an honor to be given such a beautiful gift. Thank you Frederic and thank you Chas....

For those of you who haven't seen "The man who planted trees" I highly recommend is very inspiring and very humbling.
