I have sketched many versions of my precious boy Bosley, but none were cartoon like. I am still trying to find the right style for capturing his good looks.
I shopped around for illustrators and realized that I simply can not afford one. I received several price quotes, but the average was $5000 for 8 - 10 illustrations. Some said they would "work with me" and start with "three poses for $1500". Um.....no thanks!
Besides, the thought of having to add an illustrator's name to Bosley's project made me feel weird. He is my dog and this is my project and no one knows him like I do! It was then, at that moment, that I realized I would work hard to refine my art abilities and try, try, try until I felt I was representing Bosley the right way.
I don't know what happened! There must have been a new groomer, but Bosley came home looking so unlike him self!
One day my daughter asked me to make pumpkin bars. We both went to the pantry and saw that we were out of canned pumpkin. Upon hearing this, Bosley came to our aid. After closing the panty door, we both were amazed to see Bosley sitting there by the door, holding his pumpkin in his mouth, letting us know we could use his pumpkin to bake pumpkin bars!
Such a good boy!
Curious about outside noises, but being so short he couldn't look out the storm door unless he stood upright.
Looking at these images reminds me of how little he really was. He loved belly scratchings.
Bosley began growing quickly. At first he was all fluff, light as could be and the size of a large hamster. We started notices his funny little quirks. His little facial expressions, his "fake" sneezes and nervous yawns.
You wouldn't know it by the amount of photos we have of him, but he disliked having his picture taken.
