Illustration Friday - Flying


You know sometimes Santa's reindeer get really tired and just can't manage to fit all of those deliveries in, that's when this magic little helper comes in.
This little guy a.k.a. Rocket Dog really and truly flys through the sky, so keep your eyes open for him, as he still loves to practice year round.

Dearest Amy,

Sorry, this morning after commenting at your previous post, my computer no longer working, so I can't proceed with further commenting.
I come back tonight to enjoy your super cute doggy illustration.

So lovely and dreamy. I hope my little Freca is flying high with joy just like the one you illustrated here.

Amy, may I ask permissiion from you to print this drawing and to put in my room. When I see it, I know Freca is well in heaven.
Your illustration is heartwarming and very meaningful to me.
I love you, I still feel very sad of that incident but your illustration have lifted me high again.
Thank you to be a great friend around.
I love you Amy.

I am looking forward to hear from you.
