Pet Pride Meme: “Lukie in the Sky with Diamonds”

In anticipation of this week’s Pet Pride meme, I present a photo sent to me by my dear friend, Bob.


"Lukie in the Sky with Diamonds"

His niece, Emma, who was 11 at the time, painted this when she found out his dog, Luke (or “Lukie Bookie”, or “Bookles”, or “Wookie”) had died. What you can’t see in the photo too clearly is that there are shiny spots which are glass beads glued to the surface.

She is now attending the Nova Scotia School of Art and Design… No wonder, eh? That girl has talent.
