Dog Portraits, Jet

Here is Jet's dog portrait completed. She is now to be mounted and delivered to her owners.

Plus we went on a day trip to Bristol Zoo. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I think the last time I went I was very small and it was better than I thought it would be, in fact I loved it. The photo above made me laugh, I think the lion was looking at his dinner, a nice little snack!

Alas, he had to go hungry and went to sleep instead!

They had a wonderful butterfly room, it took quite a while for my camera lens to stop steaming up for any photos, and I did take quite a few!

And I think this little chap would make a wonderful addition to my pets corner at home, these little prairie dogs were so busy tunneling and collecting that they were completely ignorant to the hundreds of screaming children who unfortunately turned up on the same day as us!

And just to help us feel at home they had an ornamental pheasant and rare bird section.
This one is an hawaiian peacock pheasant which is very similar to our grey peacock pheasant (obviously in grey rather than blue)

Spot on portrait Karie-Ann, were the kids scared of the lion!? said...

thanks both, Jet was a lovely dog to portray as she had such a lovely story. Those children were in no way scared of the lions, I think they would have broken in if they could!
