Mom, do you have anything to share from when you were a child?
What would you like me to share? Like what?
When I was in middle school
I immigrated with my mom and dad,
your grandma and grandpa
to Brisbane, Australia.
We had a big garden over there,
so we raised 4 dogs in all.
The two dogs you see in the photo
were our big last two dogs,
These two were so lively,
I liked them a lot.
They’ve gone on to be angels now.
I miss them a lot.
Raising dogs requires our wholehearted effort,
they also need a big backyard to move around in.
I’m looking forward to you Clayton, after growing up,
to be able to take care of dogs by yourself.
This is what I’d like to share from my childhood experience
of raising pets.
What is the artwork about?
This is a house in Australia, although it is very old, it is very beautiful. In front of the house there is green grass with two dogs and a kennel. There is a big tree beside the grass. There are chairs and tables under the tree. There is a long walkway in front of the house for cars and a fence next to it. At that time, my mother felt very happy, but now I am sad because both dogs died, so I must raise my own dogs to commemorate them in the future. The dogs were very loyal to my mother, and my mother took good care of them. We are like friends because he has been with me for 4 years. Sometimes he comforts me, plays with me, accompanies me in sadness, and when the dog sees me, it will circle around me, wag its tail, and bark, and I will be happy at that time. The houses in Taiwan are different from those in Australia. In Taiwan, they all have 10 floors, but in Australia, there are 2 floors and a front courtyard.
