And he hasn't really mastered the fine art of walking on a leash....he loves to go on walks, well we call them "smells", because he has to sniff and smell everything along the way without regard to the person holding the other end of the leash!
He does love a good squirrel chase and I love having squirrels in my backyard...which doesn't always balance out. And although my oldest son reminds me that squirrels come from the Rodentia genus, or are related to the rat family.....I still enjoy them, and so does Roscoe... in his own way. I think the squirrels like the attention, and the "sport" because they love to sit close to our french doors and taunt him!
And many of you love your pets (for better or for worse!) as well. A friend recently asked if I would paint some canine friends of hers and put them in period clothing. I've done this a few times and enjoy doing it, and each time I do, my family asks me when I'm going to paint Roscoe. So far, I haven't decided what he should wear!....if anything. lol!
Here are a few pics of Patty's cousin's beloved family pets. Don't you just love their faces?
And here is my interpretation of them dressed in period clothing.........
While we are on the topic of custom portraits.....Dee's custom portrait of her son is almost done. All that is left is for me to paint an oval painting over on the left side (right side when looking at it) to balance the overall portrait.
Have a great weekend! We have one more Science experiment this semester, so that's what we'll be doing! Glad it's nothing combustible! :)
