Roxy Begins

Today starts my latest dog painting - that of the very special Roxy.

She was taken in when she was five and a half years old by her current owner; who trained her up and brought out the diamond within.

Roxy is now a PAT dog (Pets as Therapy), she is so steady she has been used as a Stooge dog to help other dogs overcome behaviour problems - and she just won the Golden Oldie championship at Scruffts ( for non pedigrees) this year.

  1. looking forward to seeing the progress Pat...

  2. thanks, Stephie. Hope you enjoy it xx

  3. How wonderful to do a portrait of such a special dog! I'm sure you'll enjoy working on this one. I'll be back to watch Roxy come to life on paper!

  4. Thanks, Teresa. I hope you enjoy watching as I do painting! xx

  5. Have always been interested in the pet therapy programs, my previous dog used to do a reading program at the elementary school where the kids would read to her, our younger dog is still a little too wild for the therapy program, maybe as she matures?! Look forward to seeing the completed portrait of this amazing dog.

  6. How marvellous your dog did a reading program, Maria!
    I hope you enjoy watching the stages xx

  7. I enjoyed reading those letters to Santa Paws, but never saw one from Missy!

    I look forward to the painting of Roxy. What a special girl!

  8. They only put a selection on there, Tonya. We're on their FB page ;)

    Roxy is a very special girl, undoubtedly! xx

  9. Roxy has come a long way! Have fun with the painting!

  10. She has, Sheryl :)

    I will have fun - and hope you enjoy watching it :) xx

  11. Thank you all for the lovely comments about Roxy, she really is a special girl.

    Maria, I enjoyed reading about your dog taking part in a reading programme with children at school, we hope to do that in the new year, if possible, as part of Pets As Therapy. For now we visit a residential care home on a weekly basis - they love it and so does Roxy. :o)
