Well it turns out that the dog I thought was Rosie was actually my friends daughter's dog, Moses. Kathy emailed me several images of the family pets and I mistook one fluffy llasa for a fluffy Havaneese. Silly me! So here is Rosie:

I will probably tweak the values a bit but the most important part is that Kathy recognizes her Rosie & is happy with it. Personally I LOVE painting fluffy dogs because the brushwork is way more forgiving than smooth coated dogs.
I am finding keeping to my low glycemic eating plan is getting to be more of a challenge each day. I did get in a green smoothie and did get to the pool for some exercise so all is not lost...
I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today.
