The video below details a memorial speed painting by Dave Larks of his sweet Golden Retriever Chester, who was taken from his family due to cancer, at a mere 18 months of age.
It is horrifying that he was only 8 months old when the cancer showed up. Chester spent his life with his family and never made it beyond their yard . . . he never made it up to the mountains.
Yet, it was believed Chester would have loved to have roamed free in the wilderness, so in the painting, Dave placed him where he believed his spirit would be happy.
