"Wanna Play?!!"

Wanna Play?!!

"Huh? Huh? Wanna play?! Gotta ball! Wanna play?! Oh, come on, try and catch me!" If ever there was a play-hound look, it's got to be this one with a mouth full of ball and the whole body just quivering with the excitement of getting to play! 

This is the final post on Jesse. It was a lot of fun to see him come to life on the paper. Not to mention a little scary at times to (when I thought I'd gone astray). I can't say that I'm going to miss painting so much black though. I think it will be a while before I try another black dog. Black anything for that matter!

Once again, a really big THANK YOU to Andrea of Colouring Outside the Lines!! Andrea graciously agreed to let me use her fabulous photograph of Jesse as well as sharing Jesse's story. That really brought him to life for me. I do hope you'll stop by and visit her blog. And please send some loving and kind thoughts Jesse's way as he is about to embark on the second part of his journey and go into to training to be a service animal. 

Thanks for your interest and kind comments throughout this work-in-progress (WIP).

  5. I'm so glad everyone who commented reacted the same way I did to this wonderful portrait. As I type this Jesse is lying on my foot. He's going to be an awesome service dog once he matures because, during his quiet times, he has to be with his person (me, for now), preferably touching them, every minute of every day!
