Quick Studies of "Pal" Running
This is a very quick series of studies from memory of a dog my family owned when I was a small child. Pal was a big rough collie who looked remarkably like lassie on T.V. He came from a breeder who told us that Pal was related to several of the Lassies who starred in the movies. This dog was was the smartest and friendliest dog our family ever owned. Even after fifty years, I miss him. I joke sometimes that I was raised by a collie. Pal treated my brother and sister and myself like his puppies sometime. When I look at these sketches, I feel a kind of ... joy. Pal was always moving and he loved to run more than anything in the world.
