Rosco was our son Brian's dog and when Brian left home I did this little painting for his unit.

Doing a painting specifically for somebody else's pleasure is one of the most rewarding aspects of being an 'artist', and I had the greatest fun doing this one. Dogs are wonderful things to paint. They express themselves, totally unselfconsciously,  in every twist of their body.

Unfortunately, a short while later, a neighbour thought Rosco was a fox and deliberately ran him over.
