Is there another painting in the world, made from the sad tears of an artist who survived a heavy loss?
Is there another such symbol in the world of the great sacrificial love of human and animal and animal to human? ..When the artist, Ms. Jurita, began to collaborate with the
Natasha Hart MBE, founder of the Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA), Cavalier of the Order of the British Empire, the first and only Russian woman who received an award from the hands of Queen Elizabeth II, her project was the Art and Basketball project, and she had direct contact with young basketball players became the source of her sports series of works. Jurita’s faithful friend, a dog named Bad Boy Tyler, was infinitely happy to be present during their lovely meetings. He always made them happy with his presence, with his love to people that over time he became a everyone’s favorite.

But once this faithful dog went into the rainbow … This clever little puppy had a big brave heart. The children did not know that the doctors found a tumor, and in Jurita this disease receded. The dog saved the mistress …

How to relieve the pain of loss?
An emotional impulse to draw, hope, at least in the picture, to see your favorite look and feel the closeness and warmth of a sweet creature. With sadness, she took her brush and color and plunged her pain into the canvas, the life story of the faithful and beautiful dog Bad Boy Tyler and the artist. So the oil painting “My dog ​​Bad Boy Tyler” was born. This painting is washed by the tears of the artist in the process of its creation. Every month, Ms. Jurita visits the place of memory of this faithful dog on the seaside, in the south of England.

All the friends’ gazes at her seemed to be calling to make sure that everyone knew about this brave, kind and loyal dog, let Tyler continue to bring light and joy to people.
Tyler’s photo of the painting and the fabulous story spread across social networks.

Such paintings are not sold at the exhibition, this painting cannot be sold, because friends can not be sold.
Jurita decided to exhibit this painting at the Art and Basketball exhibition in November 2019 in London and, together with Natasha Hart and the athletes, present this painting to Queen Elizabeth II, knowing Her Majesty’s love for dogs. This is a good message of support “with good wishes to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her family at this time” from artist Jurita Natasha Hart and NASSA athletes.

Jurita, wanted people to never forget British “fidelity” to animals.
The portrait “My dog Bad Boy Tyler” we hope will become a symbol of British fidelity to animals and will attract even more fans.

“Dogs go to Rainbow …
And a tear has frozen in my heart ..
But memory ….
 
October 28, 2018, on the 9th year, my baby went to the rainbow.” You have left my life, but you will NEVER leave my heart – RIP my dear Masik.
“Masik” (in the pedigree name of “Bad Boy Taylor”) is a Yorkshire terrier, lived for 9 years. He was small, but he had a brave heart full of love.
Cause of death: after the operation after 2 months happened relapse
The dog died in 3 days: the blood went into the body, the baby went blind, he was paralysed, epilepsy, he fell into a coma and died on the 3rd day in the hospital on the hand of Jurita’s. Around the clock dropper did not save from hellish pain.
I could not save him … I tried … My grief is on the border … We will definitely meet, my friend, you are forever in my heart …” – Jurita
 
Masik all the time calling the Jurita to the mountains on the Atlantic ocean, he ask her will come to him, play with him. Jurita goes to dog’s place of memory, carries dog treats, spreads it on the grass … waits for him to see her and come running to her, with a cheerful barking … When he was 40 days after dead, Jurita traveled to the Atlantic Ocean with the hope that, maybe, he would see her from there, from the sky, from a rainbow … While she arrived and reached the Atlantic Ocean, the sunset had already ended in the mountains and total darkness fell. She was came with a flashlight, from memory … “When I began to come back – I heard him barking, fervently … about 2-3 minutes, barking, from behind from above from afar … as if calling me, played, was glad that I arrived … as if he saw me and found sweets. .. when I said that I would come again soon and bring some snacks, he calmed down … “- Jurita
 
Dog’s Legend:
 
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” ― Josh Billings. 
 
The Rainbow Bridge is a mythical meeting place between earth and sky in the Afterlife of pets and their owners. At the very edge of the sky there is a place called the Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies, especially if it was very loved by someone in this life, it falls on the Rainbow Bridge. There are endless meadows and hills where our friends can run and play all together. There is an abundance of food, water and sunlight, and our pets are warm and comfortable there. In this land, all sick and old animals turn into young and full of energy; those who had injuries and injuries become healthy and strong again. Time flies for them, if only we remember them in our dreams and dreams. The animals there are happy and satisfied with all but one – each of them left earlier and left someone very dear to him in this life. On the Rainbow Bridge, the animals run and play carelessly all together, but a day comes when one of them suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His eyes light up with fire, and his body begins to tremble with impatience. Suddenly he leaves his fellows, flies over emerald green grass, and his legs carry him faster and faster. He noticed you; and when you and your darling finally meet, you will cling tightly, happy that you have joined and you will never be parted again. He will licked your face, having doused with happiness, your hand will lovingly caress his head again, and you will once again look into the faithful eyes of your pet, who has left your life for so long but never left your heart. Now you can cross the Rainbow Bridge together …
