Nine year old Willow, a Pomeranian, is a tiny fluffball. She belongs to a neighbor and despite her small size in our big world, whenever she's outside, she makes a big statement.
I photographed Willow last year, but she had short hair then. (summer haircut) I was lucky enough to be able to photograph her again recently, with her full fur coat that I feel makes her so precious.
The same day I was photographing Willow, I was also photographing another family playmate - a black Lab named Sam who was playing with a red, white, and blue ball.
In Willow's photo, there was no ball. She was actually dancing around her master's feet. I knew the pose would make for a really cute painting, however I wanted her to have a toy so I could include her in my Dogs With Toys series of art. So I painted Sam's ball in with Willow for her painting. And this is the result! Fine art prints and a variety of fun artsy gifts are available from my website. (hint...they make wonderful gifts for Pomeranian dog owners!)
So what kind of toys does your dog like? Share your dog's photo playing with balls, stuffed toys, squeaky toys, plus toys which aren't considered a traditional dog toy, and your dog could be chosen to be in the "Dogs With Toys" series of artwork! Visit my news page to see how.
