Dog Parade Wednesday The PUG

The adaptable, good tempered PUG is a favourite of nearly every dog lover. The Pug is a member of the TOY GROUP, but he never sees himself as a tiny dog. Their charming faces and confident stance have won fans, inspired artists, and gained the favour of Royalty for centuries. Pugs are highly intelligent, companionable little dogs, and they excel as pets. The sturdy Pug is a very old breed whose origins are somewhat hidden in the mists of time. While always popular, it reached a zenith of popularity during the Victorian age, and its image appeared in paintings, as decorative ornaments, and even on housewares. Today, it is still popular, fitting as easily into an apartment as it does into a country house.
Wherever he lives, the Pug quickly becomes a loved and loving family member.

Today's painting is an Original Miniature Watercolour, measuring just 3 x 4.5 inches, and it comes with a 5 x 7 inch mat. This delightful little Pug painting is only $40. shipping included, and anyone interested in it can contact me at:
