Sealed With A Kiss

Sealed With A Kiss - 6" x 6" (approx) oil on hardboard/masonite

I am particularly fond of paintings which feature a close relationship between human and dog as does this, the latest of my 'kiss' paintings. So many of the bull breeds have a poor reputation and yet these dogs can be the sweetest of companions. Cesar Milan, the 'dog whisperer' describes them as gladiators and I think this is an accurate summing up of the character of many of them and because of this they need to be trained to mix well with other dogs - ideally when they are young. Remember that like all dogs, they need to know their boundaries, a leader/s they can respect (human) and love.

Spoiling a dog isn't loving it but loving a dog isn't spoiling it.
