My dog Gracie meant the world to me and, after she was gone, I wanted some special way to remember her.
I thought of Julia, knowing what a wonderful artist she is. Julia is very kind, patiently understanding of animal lovers, and a pleasure to work with, so it came as no surprise to be thrilled with the finished result. What I clearly remember, however, was sighing when I saw it: there was the Gracie I knew and loved. Julia had captured her spirit and magic perfectly. -Frances Harte, Putney, Vermont
