Artist’s Thoughts: I wanted to develop a composition that illustrates the different categories of breeds with equal emphasis, again with the theme that ALL dogs are loved and celebrated. As owners of purebred dogs, we sometimes have to defend ourselves for not adopting shelter dogs, when most of us love ALL dogs…. I know I do! I wanted to depict some of the favorite, beautiful, and stately breeds within the AKC just as they are… Purebred and Proud. It also gave me the opportunity to illustrate and include my two, the English Springer Spaniel and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
