Argo wasn’t perfect and yet we were best friends…
He was scared of crowds, escalators ( I had to carry him in my arms every time, can you picture it? a 55kg woman carrying a labrador who wouldn’t stop squirming.. a miracle my back is still intact) he didn’t like spiders or bugs…
And it doesn’t end here…
Argo snored, howled during a thunderstorm, he hid my slippers, and used to roll in the mud, dirtying my house…
But I'm not perfect either… but together we were a wonderful match.
Argo was and still is my best friend in my heart.
Here’s why I consider my dog my best friend
I consider my dog my best friend! Me and Argo had a lot of things in common…
He loved naps just as much as me
When I paint I put all of my energy into it, and that’s why my social and creative batteries tend to drain quickly.
That’s why I need daily naps (20 min per day) to regain my energy.
And what would Argo do? he’d come right beside me and we slept together ( I admit having him besides me during summer was a torture because he’d get so warm!!)
Tell me if this is not what best friends do.
He was always ready for an adventure
He didn’t care about the destination.. As soon as he heard “let’s go” He would immediately stand up and run towards the door waiting for me. Being 7am or 11 pm he was always happy to go outside.
He liked my cooking
I’m not the biggest chef (even if I'm Italian). I never liked cooking, that was my husband's forte. But when I’m forced to cook, being carrots, pasta, meat or fish, Argo ate everything even if it wasn’t the best meal.
I wonder if his kibble was worse than my cooking…but I wouldn’t dare to try.
He didn’t care if I looked silly
Argo didn’t care about my silly faces, if I talked to him like a child ( a 40 kg. furry child) When I went outside with him he didn’t care about what I was wearing or if I wore makeup at all.. He was happy to be out with me without judgment.

He had the best greetings
Everyday without missing he was happy to see me come back home, full of excitement wiggling with all its body. I couldn’t tell you the last time a human greeted me with such warmth.
Coming back home was wonderful..
Argo gave me a reason to come back home, tired after a long day of work. If I was in a bad mood? Argo was right there to greet me as if he knew I needed affection.
He was so good at that.
My best friend Argo was my alarm
I don’t know if you experienced living by yourself.. but I did. Every single noise I was scared, I was always on alert and anxious whenever I heard a sudden noise.
When Argo came into my life that was not a problem anymore. I felt safe with him.
My best friend was super funny
Argo was always ready to play. I love pretending to scare him and go hide: seeing his funny faces when I jumped out suddenly was hilarious. He would always find a way to make me smile, when I went to work and found one of his toys in my pocket..( he loved hiding stuff in my pockets!!)

I remember when I used flowers and colors to overcome Argo’s loss ( I tell you my experience in this article)
His portrait really helped me, even with my own business.
Everyday I dedicate 10 minutes of my morning just to stare at him and remember all those wonderful moments spent together.
I noticed all my sadness was fading little by little, leaving only positive memories without fear or anxiety.
That's why I choose to paint with flowers and colors.
I can’t wait to paint you!
