My friends Erica and Greg used to live here in Park Slope, and when they did, I did a series of portraits of their bassett hound, Oliver. I think it was 2011? I was so happy to be able to dig them out of my hard drive for them, and send them over again, when they announced via Facebook this weekend that he had died, a few days after his 14th birthday.
Greg wrote a very moving essay on Medium about their dog, that had me wiping tears off of my chin.
Friends, I am so sorry for your loss. He was a humdinger.
