Woof woof........


When I first did the kitty portraits, my friend Helen in the UK complimented me on them and asked if I was going to do one of Cooper. We both thought a dog would be harder. After I did the lab puppy, I realized that it really wasn't much different. Then I offered to do her baby, Trevor. He is a golden retriever and has the sweetest face. She sent me three poses but I used the portrait of his face just because it showed more detail in the eyes and I think that I what shows their personalities. I hop you like it Helen...It is about an 11x 14. I have been matting mine in white and then putting them in a black frame. I will send it to you in the next couple of days....Melinda
