This picture has a very deep meaning to me, even though it might sound completely stupid to some of you. My dog, Princesse, was devoted, friendly, lovely, loyal... She was the most perfect friend you could hope for, and she had such importance to my eyes that I still miss her presence now. Death came and wanted to take her away from me. As the disease progressed, I saw the distance setting between us. Little by little, Death took her strenght, joy and confidence. She struggled hard for life, and we battled by her side. But one day, we couldn't deny anymore that she was meant to leave us, and that nothing would stop that. So we freed her from her sufferance. Death shall consider herself lucky for having such an angel by her side. Princesse is now watching over me, as I watched over her these past years. A friend like her might never be forgotten, she was as a sister to me. This picture is to honnor her memory.

Rest in peace

All I can say is this is beautiful, and the meaning behind it makes it even more so.

Princess' wings are incredible. 2 I'll be sure to come back

:-) Karine 'La gitane' Jetté replies: "  Thank you very much! Her wings are my pride, in spite. They really came out as I wanted them to, but I have to admit I've had to refer to some other pictures to get them right. I had never drawn wings before. Anyway, I'm glad you liked my work! I quickly checked your gallery, and it seemed to be full of nice stuff! I'll be sure to check everything out right away. ^-^"

That's a great art, and i dont think your description sounds stupid at all, i had a great companion dog once, she just died a little while ago =(

great job on the wings =)

:-) Karine 'La gitane' Jetté replies: "  Aww... I understand how you must feel... As long as her memory stays, though, she'll always be with you, trust me. Thanks for leaving that sweet comment. "

That's sad. But the grim reaper thing, makes it worse.

:-) Karine 'La gitane' Jetté replies: "  I know... Bad reaper, bad!!! *hits him with a stick* Okay, don't mind me. Lol. I wanted, actually, to give the picture this impression of... disgust, and hate, I don't know... I wanted to have something looking real bad behind her, to contrast with her own beauty and stuff... Anyway. Thanks a lot for your comment! "

We all lose someone speacial on our lives. IM glad you understsand your dog is with you. death is something we should not be afraid of. im very proud of you and this work.

:-) Karine 'La gitane' Jetté replies: "Hi there. Well, I actually AM afraid of death... In many ways. But I still believe the ones who left us still live as long as their memory does. And all those after-death theories, actually. Anyway. Thanks for commenting. ^_^"

When I was a child, my dog died. Afterwards, I dreamt that he visited me, flying, with wings like that. It was comforting to me. As I've grown older, I've suffered worse loss, but that dream and image remain clear in my memory. This picture reminds me of that long-ago dream.
Thank you.

This picture is amazing and so very symbolic...I have to admit this but after reading the description and then seeing the picture I just wanted to cry, I went through something quite similar when we had to put down my cat. *What can I say? I'm kind of emotional at the moment ^_^;*
Again, I have to say this is an amazing picture.

2 Karine 'La gitane' Jetté replies: "Wow. I'm kind of at a loss for words, after such a declaration... I didn't think I'd touch people's feelings so much. It's nice to know that you're actually understanding my feelings. Thank you for this very welcome comment. It really cheered me up. ^_^</a></i>"

Zut, je m'étais dit que je mettrais plus de commentaire mais...j'avais pas vu ce magnifique dessin!

Je ne trouve pas ça stupide que tu l'aies fait en l'honneur de ta chienne, les animaux sont d'un grand réconfort et on peut leur porter beaucoup d'amour, et en particulier les chiens, qui débordent d'affection. Bon, moi je peux pas saquer les chiens, ça pue, ça bave partout et ça perd ses poils, mais j'ai failli pleurer en lisant ton histoire (piti coeur fragile a moi, ki subit déjà rude épreuve...).
En tout cas, on voit que tu t'es donnée à fond dans ce dessin. Les ailes sont magnifiques, autant du point de vue du dessin que des ombres, la faucheuse est superbe aussi (dans son genre) et j'ai du mal à croire que tu aies pu réussir a dessiner ce chien aussi bien!

DONNE MOI TON TALENT! TOUT DE SUITE! ...non jte le laisse, va! ^^

bonne continuation!

WOW, that's a great picture...but it is reminding me that my dog might die soon...she is nearing death, age catching up with her. even though i never had a loss like that, i have sympathy for you (and those other people). anyways... your artwork is done extremely well, i only wish i could draw wings (or anything else in this matter) like that

My mum said my dog wouldn't last the winter, but I never really beleieved her until it happened. I've known him since before I was born. Your Princess is obviously close to you. I'm sorry for your loss.
But hey, life goes on. I now have two dogs, Zigger and Dusty. They'll never replace Scrap, of course, but I love them just as much.
