Losing a pet can be very difficult. One of the best ways to remember your pet is through a pet portrait. Many of the drawings I create are for those who recently lost their fur babies. This drawing of Tormey, a Shetland Sheepdog who recently passed to the rainbow bridge, gives his owner comfort every day when she views her dog portrait. It is a keepsake you will not forget and a piece of art you can enjoy. It also gives me pleasure to create these memorials and I know if I bring tears to their eyes I have done my job.
Tormey is the second drawing of a Sheltie I have done for this owner. Knowing both drawings will be kept on the same wall, I created a drawing of the same size and similar background colors. In the drawing of Tooney, one sees the resemblance of background hues.
The AKC describes the Shetland Sheepdog as a playful, energetic, and bright breed and a member of the herding group. The Sheltie originated in the Shetland Islands of Scotland. They resemble their cousin the Collie. Originally called the Shetland Collie, the name changed to the Shetland Sheepdog due to controversy with Rough Collie breeders.
