Foxy Finnish Spitz and a Walking Ball of Hair
I’ve just finished up two illustrations for upcoming National Specialties, which will be held in Vancouver, Washington… The Finnish Spitz and a moving Lhasa Apso. They can be purchased from CafePress, CKC Embroidery and a new vendor Dog Mom Dog Designs.
Dog Mom Dog Designs offers a variety of products including t-shirts, totes, glass etching. Her apparel and totes can be printed in ink or metallic ink… A very nice touch.
The Finnish Spitz resembles a red fox. It is a northern breed (i.e., Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed) with erect ears, a dense double coat and a plumed bushy tail. He is a lively animal, with a keen, intelligent expression and brisk, quick movement. Medium-sized, the Finnish Spitz comes across as an agile, workmanlike dog with no exaggerated or showy features except for his lustrous golden-red coat, which ranges from pale honey to deep auburn.
The Lhasa Apso is a small, hardy breed with a beautiful cloak of hair that parts down their back from head to tail. Their temperament is unique: joyful and mischievous, dignified and aloof. An independent breed, the Lhasa’s goal in life is not necessarily to please their master. Popular in the show ring, the breed also excels at activities that provide constant challenges, such as agility.
