I love to draw dogs, because basically I love dogs. I always have been a dog person, although I do also like cats. In many of my images, I include my dogs from the past--Ratdog and Shelly--and my current pooches Freddy (in the photo) and Gracie (a Chihuahua).

Ratdog was another amazing dog in my life and that's why I include him in my art. When I adopted Ratty, they told me he would probably live for maybe a year, but we had him for 10. He was a finalist in the 2011 World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, CA, but he couldn't win because he was too damn cute!

|Our amazing vet Dr. Hunter kept him alive more than a few times.|

Shelly was an American Staffie and a big lover. The bully breeds (Pit bulls, etc.) get a bad rap, but Shelly was a clown; a wonderful friend and the best dog I've ever owned. When she passed a few years back, it hit me real bad and to be honest--I'm still not over it.
