Fred is a big (no huge) dog belonging to our friends. He still thinks he is a puppy, and if you sit in his chair he will try to climb into your lap. Despite his grumpy look, he is a very happy pup. Lives on a farm, with a huge yard, plenty of horses, chickens, cats and a goat to chase. Always something to get into. Inside the house we have come to an agreement - instead of sitting on my lap, he sits on my feet. In fact, he sits on everybody's feet! It's hard to get him to sit still for a formal portrait - so this will have to do. Enjoy.
