I’m up on the wall!

No. 1 and No. 2 decided that they wanted to look at me up on the wall, in addition to looking at me in person all the time.

A nice human came over, and she brought her young human and guess what, they have a phalene! A phalene is just exactly like a papillon except their ears go down instead of up. My long lost cousin!

After the visit, pretty soon my portrait arrived and No. 2 stuck it up on the wall.

Very handsome if I do say so myself.

No. 1 here… the fabulous pet portraitist is Tamara Burnett.

No. 2 here… I am so glad that we had Tamara paint this picture. (It was my birthday present to No. 1!) After becoming acquainted with Willie, she mostly worked from a photo. When Tamara first brought the painting to us, it somehow didn’t look quite right. Then we figured out what was missing. There is a tiny spot on the left side of his nose, which was not really visible in the photo. We asked Tamara to paint it in, and then suddenly … wham! It was Willie! It was amazing to me that such a tiny detail could make such a big difference. I really appreciated Tamara’s willingness to work with us to get this keepsake just right.

How interesting! We didn’t know such dogs existed. Did a double take in case it was April 1st and then looked phalene up on google. I am a King Charles cavalier. I am a great fan of yours living in U.K.

Paws up Toby! I think you’re my cousin! Myself I was an only puppy but I hear that phalenes can even be born in the same litter as papillons!

Woofs,
