This lovely little dog is called Jet. She is thought to be a labrador x whippet but as she was a rescue dog it is not entirely certain. I felt that she melted into the background of trees in the photograph so suggested to her owner that we opt for a sky backdrop instead.
The portrait arrived safely this morning and it is gorgeous. As good as it looked in the picture you e-mailed me it looks even better in real life and I am so impressed with how much detail you can get in. Thanks again for such an amazing portrait, I love it.
