Dougal as a puppy

This is a work in progress, started last year and then put to one side.  It's a personal painting for myself, of my dog Dougal when he was 8 weeks old.  I have copied Dougal from a photo my friend took of him, but I have added the butterfly.  Dougal was a little monster and I don't think he could have stayed that still with a butterfly fluttering past his nose... the little tyke would have snapped at it and tried to catch it, like he used to snap at people's feet as they walked by.  Anything that moved was a game of chase to him... he hasn't changed much.  Dougal is a Scottish Terrier and is eight and a half years old now.  Thanks for looking :)

Thanks so much. He was a cute puppy. I sometimes wish he was a puppy still, lol, but he was a bit of a handful. He has calmed down these days :)
