In Bernie's Dreams

In case you missed this a while back, Bernie is now an elderly, portly cat who keeps the patients company in a large animal hospital and spends much of his awake time patroling the clinic at a dignified pace. But in his dreams, Bernie flies and effortlessly chases and flings mice around the sky. This is a 48" x 36", oil pastel and is owned by Bernie's loving veterinarian.
