In Memorium

"Xmas Goose" multi-block relief print

Poor Goosey is no longer with us. After a valiant battle with a mink a few nights ago, while Goosey didn't appear to be physically damaged, we think that he was just stressed too far with the chase. Goosey, a great guard goose famed across Cobble Hill for his presence, will be missed dearly by all of us, as well as his field buddy, Lady the horse, who'll probably miss him the most of all.

Here is a small tribute in art of the various expressions of Goosey that I've done so far over the years. I'm planning on doing another one this year, probably for my Christmas cards, as a reminder of our favourite goose.

Added November 4, 2007 - Mom also has a recent painting of Goosey & Lady from a photo of them in the snow last year that she wishes to add to our memorial. This is a watercolour painting called Friends.
