"Juno" is for Madeline, who commissioned the painting for her husband. Juno is a one-and-a-half-year-old Goldendoodle who loves rubber balls. She is a wonderful guard dog and pal to Madeline's baby son. She has yet to meet a person whom she doesn't like, regardless of how they feel about her! She still has some puppy exuberance, but she always has a bit of regalness about her, that's why her nickname is Lady Juno.
Madeline liked another photo better for the commission, but the moment I saw my favorite picture with a titled head and puzzled, inquisitive expression, I was sold. I talked Madeline into this composition. She graciously accepted my suggestion, with one proviso: get rid of the hunting vest Juno was wearing. So I did. Thank you, Madeline!
