FRANK

This is Frank.  Frank belongs to my granddaughters friend.  When I saw the reference photo, I fell in love with him and took my pastels out!! lol.   My biggest joy was when she saw it and loved it!  We love that, right?  I forgot to ask her what breed of dog he is...maybe someone here will know!

  13. Bonjour ma chère Hilda,

    Je trouve super mignon ce petit chien. Il serait un bon copain de jeu à mon Icarus !
    Je comprends que tu aies eu envie de lui croquer la frimousse !
    Ce n'est pas facile de travailler le pelage de ce type de toutou. Toutes mes félicitations.
    En revanche, je ne sais pas quelle race de chien c'est !
    L'essentiel est qu'il se porte bien et soit bien dans sa tête.

    Gros bisous à toi,
