Everybody in town knew Monster. Kids loved him and he loved kids. For hours on end he'd play football with the boys. His favourite treat? Mints! Tick-tacks, Fisherman's Friend, the mintier the better.
This was one of the first dog portraits I ever painted, after I picture I took on his 10th birthday, which we celebrated with a piñata and many friends.
