    Well I have a friend who as pictures of my staffy being as we showed his and mine together once at a show and he's shocked me :eek: by sending a message on my phone besides a pic of Bruno's portrait being done by an elderly woman who he knows and I get it the weekend totally finished :sete_056:

    The lady has caught Bruno to a T. Have you got a special place to hang it? Do show us it again when it's finished won't you?

    I just love it Eileen she's got to finish his collar and his chest and she usually does them on A4 sheets but apparently she's done Bruno's larger...she's retired and loves doing them now as an hobby...his portrait is going over my laptop table just on the wall above me because on the other wall I have a staffy head and his lead and collar are on that and a calendar someone sent me of Bruno's pic's done in 2011 and I cut the calendar off the bottom but still turn the months :)

    Hello Eileen tomorrow it will be put on the wall in the room where our pc's are as the furniture is black and it's going on to the main wall opposite our hallway. :)...the light is reflecting off it a bit Eileen sorry.

    Now that it's framed it looks even better Gail. I'm sure if Bruno could see it he'd approve of the frame you've chosen. Now he'll always be with you.

    Definitely Eileen as the frame being bigger really exposes the portrait and thank you for your adorable comments :)
