^^Great idea! I just ordered one!
And it arrived yesterday! Beautiful! I need to get a frame, but the overall drawing came out lovely!

I really like being able to choose the background color. Her blankets are blue, so I chose the color that I see her with the most.

Awww! I'm so glad you love it. So I ordered a custom picture with four of my mom's rescue dogs that passed away over the last couple of years and... he mixed up two of their names! I didn't tell him, and once it actually arrives I'll see what I might be able to do to fix it. But even if I can't, I think it's okay and my mom will love it regardless. He did a really great job on the drawings, and he gave me a great price, so I don't want to be too snotty about it, you know? (I did double check that I gave him the correct names, but it's the kind of mistake I feel like I could easily make.)

I think if you stick to one drawing at a time, you're in good shape, though! :)

The blanket I bought for my wife is perfect camouflage for Zoe.

lp - that's great.

Our lab loved the water and would dart out of our car whenever we went to the beach. Having grownup on the shores of Lake Huron, dogs that love the water are fun. When I was a preteen, we lived at a Lake Huron beach house for two summers and even the Pekingese we had at the time enjoyed the very shallows. She wasn't a swimmer, but she loved bouncing around in the shallows.

This was the first summer she went into the water - the previous summer she wouldn't go near it - so yeah it was fun watching her go in - she's only about 10 pounds so we have to be careful with the tide changes though
