Off The Leash - Black Labrador Retriever By Robert Bateman

By Robert Bateman

Off the Leash - Black Labrador Retriever by Robert Bateman

ďFrom an early age, I decided I that although I grew up in a big city and would always enjoy visiting cities, I would live in the country so that I could walk out my door and immediately be in nature. A dog that is reasonably well trained is a wonderful companion for walking in the country. I canít count the the happy hours that Smallwood (our Labrador retriever with a Newfoundland grandmother) and I spent exploring the fields and forests near our home or cottage. Joey Smallwood, by the way, was the first premier of the province of Newfoundland when that British colony joined Canada in 1949. The Premier was a bit of a rabble rouser, but our dog was mellow yet enthusiastic and most important for roving in nature, he was quite obedient. For this reason, I was comfortable to walk with him off the leash. Of course, he would always be ahead in the direction he guessed that I would go, but he continually checked back to make sure that he was on the right track. If I had felt it necessary to hike with him on a leash, I know that we both would have been frustrated. In this painting I have shown him briefly lying down, waiting for me to catch up. I felt that the delicate forms in the little grove of hemlocks made a good counterpoint to the solidity of Smallwoodís sphynx-like figure.Ē ~ Robert Bateman
