Dogs With Scarves - Final Paw-rt

Well, here it is...
the final grouping of dogs in my new 
Paws For a Bit "Dogs With Scarves" card series!

These dogs have all made some special impact on me,
that is why I saved them until last!


(Jack Russell Terrier, watercolour)

"Riley M&M Sullivan" was my sister's first Jack Russell, she bought him from a 
woman at Port Dalhousie pier when he was a just a puppy... He was such a cool dog! 
The plaid on his scarf is the same plaid that was on his favourite collar!

Shadow belongs to my friend and her family. He was the first German Shepherd I got to know
and feel comfortable around... He has the most beautiful amber eyes and a coat of many colours - 
every shade of sable, grey, black and tan - mixed through every hair on his body!
Shadow is sporting my friend's favourite plaid, Robertson Red.

(Golden Retriever, watercolour)

We have a favourite teacher at our local school and this design was painted 
with her and her lovely canine companions in mind!  
She has a Golden named Sadie who is all sweetness!! 
The plaid I chose for my Sadie is a nod to the family of the real Sadie,
it is the "Preece of Wales" tartan/plaid (Ancient Colours).

The last dog in my collection was also a member of our favourite teacher's family...

(Bernese Mountain Dog, watercolour)

The real Tilly often visited our school when she was a small-ish fluffy pup... 
I had never seen a Bernese Mountain Dog before and I fell in love her immediately!  
I gave my Tilly a colourful rainbow striped scarf because the real Tilly's days
were full of wagging tails and happiness!!

 God willing, I hope to be posting some more design ideas in the coming days...
