"Zoe" is for Jennifer, who commissioned the painting for her mother. Zoe is her mom's 10-year-old Goldendoodle. The sweet Zoe is everything to her mom. She absolutely loves tennis balls and playing catch. She likes to "skin" them by taking off the yellow fuzz. Indeed, she had one of those skinned tennis balls in her mouth in the reference photo, which I couldn't figure out, so I had to ask Jennifer about!
