DOG PORTRAIT ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

Dog portrait original watercolor painting, 9 x 12 on arches 140 lb rough watercolor paper.   

After years of having a dog, you know him. You know the meaning of his snuffs and grunts and barks. Every twitch of the ears is a question or statement, every wag of the tail is an exclamation.”
Robert R. McCammon,


Very true.  My dog has a bark for water, a different bark for I want to come in, a snuffle and snort for I want to eat, a dance for I want to go out and intense STARE,  and then the regular 'standing guard' bark.
