3" by 4"
Oil on Masonite

I promise, this is the last puppy or kitten I'll post for a while.

Today is my dog Dulce's first birthday.

Last year, about this time, I got a call from Dixie, of Dixie's Doodles, telling me there were enough chocolate colored Labradoodles in Amelia's litter for me to have one, and in six weeks I could make my choice.

I won't say that she's been a perfect angel, but she's been a pretty good dog so far.

Here's to another year with the dog who looks like she's a creation from Muppet Labs.

The Dulcinator.

The Fuzzball.

Dixie's Dulce De Leche.

Dulce as in that seaweed they eat in the Canadian Maritimes?
Just wondering if you are transplanted from those parts. They also say 'wee'little thing'.
I love the UFO paintings!

I'm afraid it's Dulce as in 'Dulce de Leche' which is a fancy Mexican caramel sweet.

Dulce's Dad is more caramel colored than chocolate.

But I think she's going to grey out and turn kinda champagne/pewter colored like her Momma.

Dulce was the color of dark chocolate when born.

Thanks about the UFOs. I'm afraid I have many more planned. . .
