Oh, by the way, did I mention that my doctor boyfriend is also a painter?

For my birthday in January, he gave me a coupon redeemable for one painting. I asked him to paint a portrait of my dog, and this is what he came up with. You don’t quite get the full effect seeing it online, as the actual portrait is two and a half feet by three and a half feet–her nose is bigger than my fist–but this gives at least a sense of the thing. (You can click on the picture to see a larger, slightly nicer version.)

Not that I’m bursting with pride or anything.

    Brains, compassion and creativity – what a catch…

    And may I say that A. is one of the cutest dogs I have ever seen…

    I think you have a couple of reasons to swell your chest

    Very cute, Faustus. You definitely have a catch here. However, don’t ever forget that you’re quite the catch yourself (I’d kill for a man who would knit me stuff).

    I am officially jealous.

    i don’t like it. it makes me want to pet it. but you can’t pet paintings. at least, that’s what i’m told. … the real question is: how does your dog like it?
