Princess and Niko

"Princess and Niko"

I needed something easy to do while I cogitate over the sky for the pelican in the previous post.  Rosie and I met Princess and Niko today  on our walk and I snapped a couple of pictures.  I did a little bit of Photoshopping, then printed out the result on fabric.  I added borders, some thread and paint, and voila!
Princess is a rescue.  She doesn't bark; she squeaks.  Apparently, she was a breeder's dog and he had all of his dogs "debarked" so he didn't have any noise from his kennels.  The breeder died, his dogs were rescued, and now Princess has a pretty nice life with her person and Niko.  These dogs are so white and fluffy -- it seems to me that having one is a lot like trying to have white carpet in a houseful of kids.  And these two always look perfect.
These dogs bark all the time.  The neighbors are going nuts.  They are still puppies and a little training would go a long way.  Just sayin'.

Love it!!! I think they are Sammies (Samoyeds), medium size dogs that need lots of brushing... especially during shedding season.
