"Buddy" is for Melanie, who commissioned the painting for her mother. Buddy, a poodle, turned four this month and was lucky enough to get his own cake! He loves to play. He can run, jump, and roughhouse all day and night if you let him. During the freezing winters in Edmonton, Canada, Buddy likes letting off some energy by walking on the treadmill.
Melanie's mom is a band teacher, and Buddy goes to school with her a few times a week to sit at her feet while she teaches a class. He has a lot of personality and loves kids, his family and dog-cousins. I might also add that Buddy has a fabulous sense of style!
