Jen-Jen Rose, a visual artist, had to push out one of the most difficult goodbyes she has ever had to say. Jen-Jen was heartbroken after her beloved dog Penni passed away. The poet, on the other hand, thought there were still things she hadn’t had the opportunity to tell her, so she wrote a farewell letter to share her thoughts, and it was so genuine that it touched our hearts.
Jen-Jen told , “She was originally meant to be a hunting dog for my father, but she was way too gentle for that.” “In the end, she became a family dog.” She came into our family when I was about 11 years old, just when things in my life were starting to get difficult.”
Jen-Jen admitted to having problems both inside and outside her house. “My parents had a lot of fights, and I was humiliated at school. I’d sit in the corner at home and weep a lot, but she’d always come over and sit with me. She’d lick my tears as she rested her head on me. Those were some of my favourite memories with her, and her company was just what I wanted at the time.”
Jen-Jen said, “Love your dogs.” “And please let them know how much you love them.”
Jen-illustration Jen’s style is bright and vivid, but she’s chosen to combine her words with black-and-white drawings this time, and the contrast between her strong, expressive words and clear lines works beautifully.
