We lost our Jack Russell Terrier, Ty, earlier this year after 15+ years. We decided to purchase this as a memorial to help our family cope with the loss and keep her memory alive. She loved to sit out in the sunshine near the pool and we had a nice picture of her in the sunshine. The artist captured her beautifully on the slate and we will be hanging it out near the poolhouse. Very nice product for those trying to keep memories of their pets.,Very pleased with the product - a very good likeness and a wonderful "notable" birthday present for a good friend. We have now ordered two more as gifts for other friends/family. My only criticism is that if you order the item online, there is nowhere in the order form to send the electronic photo and you have to contact customer service separately. That said, customer service were very helpful in ensuring my digital image(s) were received and passed onto the right place.,I ordered this slate for my husband. It has 2 portraits on it: our dog, Benny, and our late dog, Poochie. Since we adopted Benny after Poochie died, we never had a picture of the two of them together. Now we have them together on this slate.
I was worried that they would only resemble our dogs but they were captured beautifully. When we opened the box, my mouth fell open and my husband was in tears. It's beyond gorgeous.,The slate arrived much quicker than I expected...I had said that I would like to give it as a Father's Day present and all the stops were pulled out to ensure that was possible, so thank you to everyone at Orvis who made that possible.
Regarding the portrait...where do I start? When I first saw it, I was a little taken aback as it was painted more in "blocks" of colour, rather than with fine brush strokes to show off individual hairs,BUT it really is my beautiful boy Archie...the artist has captured both his nobility and cheekiness of character and all from a photo which was slightly out of focus!!! The more I look at it, the more I love it and I know that my husband for whom the gift is intended, will ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
This is a wonderful way to give a unique gift to a person you love,of a pet you adore, and at a very low price. I have pencil drawings of past dogs and they cost a lot more than this and are not as unusual as the lovely piece of slate these are painted on.
You can probably tell by now that I am quite pleased with my purchase !!!!!
I urge anyone who has thought about buying this, but not done anything about it yet, to go ahead. You will not be disappointed.
Just one down side....how do I top this when I buy my next gift?!!!,I bought this for my friend and her husband, that lost their dog a year ago. It was a gift, to remember what a wonderful member of the family he was. The photo I sent was not the best quality, but the painting was amazing! It brought tears to my eyes when I first opened it. Absolutely perfect!!!
