Walking Marco (& Animal Portraits)

All summer long, we’ve been unable to walk our pup.  He hurt his back leg at the back of June and since then we’ve been under vet’s orders to rest him as much as possible.  It’s been rubbish.

Slowly but surely, however, the wee one’s leg has got better and better and better until, just this last week, I’ve been able to take him out for “interesting”  walks (i.e. not just around the block) once again.  Bliss.

Whilst I’m here and talking about dogs, let me share this painting with you:

Isn’t it lovely?  It’s by my artist friend, Donna McGlynn.  She paints and draws portraits of pets and other animals.  If you’d like to see more of her work or are interested in having your own pet drawn/painted, she has a website here and an Etsy page here and a Facebook page here.
