I had a blast last year making the Fat Animal Magnet as Christmas presents, but it’s taken me forever and a day to finish getting them all up on the blog. That’s what I get for painting 50ish things at a time, I suppose! 😉

Anywho, these cute little doggos were done as a portrait of a friend’s miniature pinscher. They have cropped ears and a docked tail, but I’ve got another natural version half-done. It’s a little alarming how many ‘new’ Fat Animals are still waiting in the wings…
