A recent client commissoned this portrait as a gift for her daughter, here is what she said about 'Moose':
Moose is part dachshund, part chihuahua, and part rat terrier. He is a funny mix, but Moose is a very proud and regal old chap. He is fiercely loyal to my daughter and while defending her, he was brutally attacked by a german shepherd. He made it through, but is far more cautious these days. He walks a little funny – almost with a skip, using 3 out of 4 legs sometimes – just because he likes to.
Every night he goes to bed with ‘lamby’ and is lost without it. He loves blankets and cuddling up in them. He loves nothing more than affection, but he also loves to play and is pretty energetic for a dog his age.
