Original Watercolor Painting on Paper
14" x 10"
My dog, Scout, loves playing in the snow. He's so excited about running through the white fluffy stuff that he seems like a tiny puppy again. We have so much fun together!
Scout is the most wonderful companion I could imagine. Whether I'm teaching my children or painting he is always beside me. As I write this, he's lying patiently at my feet.
He's a beautiful dog, an English Shepherd, which is an old-fashioned farm dog. They're what Border Collies and Australian Shepherd were bred from. The big difference is they're calm when action's not needed, but they like jobs to do.
The really great thing about English Shepherd is they are brilliant dogs. They're not bred for looks, but for tasks and intelligence. They have a huge range of looks, but they're always smart.
They had to be smart. If the farmers went to town, the dog was left in charge of the farm. They can put a bull back in his pen and keep him there. They can chase off coyote and make sure they don't return (Yes, Scout's done that one). Scout understands two step commands, like "Go to the kitchen and get your ball." More importantly, "Go find the boys and bring them in," or "Put the chickens in the coop." I can't tell you what a huge help and joy he is to have.
Yes, I could go on all day about my dog. I'm also going to paint him a lot...
