Sarah B. Baba Puppy Pants aka Miss B. We adopted this Pembroke Welsh Corgie as a puppy when Kiddo was 4, so she had the honor of naming the new puppy. In addition to her string of colorful names, Sarah is also affectionately called "The Princess", which she does her best to live up to. Because really, as far as she is concerned, it's all about Sarah.

Sarah is a beauty :) Great job on the portrait!
I always thought Corgis were funny- with normal sized bodies on small legs- and since Tasha Tudor had them too, I'd guess that it's an artist's kind of job!

Beautiful masterful strokes Ann! :) WOW!

Wow - gorgeous! Your style is perfectly suited to fur and that's come out so beautifully. Pet portraits are clearly a potential way forward if you enjoyed doing it - make sure plenty of people see this!

This is lovely - the fur looks so real and so soft.

She is just like the Velveteen Rabbit. She has been loved a lot.

That is a very nice drawing. I love how all the white hairs show up in the dark which is something I need a lot more practice on. Your dog looks terrific.
