I visit a friend a lot and our dogs play really well together. I have grown to love her dog almost as much as mine and couldn't resist painting his protrait - and I haven't even done that for my dog yet.
If you would like me to paint your four footed "best friend" for you just let me know, I had so much pleasure doing this one that another would be just fine.
It turned out well. He's a big standard poodle and has his fuzzy winter coat on at the moment; he frolicks in the garden like a huge overgrown lamb jumping high in the air and in every direction. Perhaps I should take a photo of him doing that and paint it.
