My very first commission for a pet portrait is of a little Bolognese dog (who knew there was such a breed? Wonderful!) owned by the mother of my friend Penny. What a proliferation of Ps we shall have in this post. Them as knows me will be surprised, as I am normally speaking a cat person, and other than the odd wolf (St Francis & the Wolf of Gubbio) I haven't really ventured into the world of canines. But little Pepe has stolen all our hearts!
