I recently started drawing Custom Pet Portraits.  I had forgotten how much people and families love their pets.  Their pets are like family members.  Dogs and cats provide companionship, comfort and a lot of fun.  Growing up, our family had two dogs and my sisters and my husband had cats in college.  Unfortunately, the two dogs and one of the cats met an untimely demise.  Trigger, our golden retriever simply went missing one day.  Hermie, our miniature schnauzer suffered an accidental death.  Piggy the cat never woke up.  Sooza and LiLi developed cancer and had to be put down.  My husband’s cat Saby just left the house and never came back.  I was traumatized by these events.  I haven’t gotten over the pain of losing them.  Even though I love animals, I haven’t been able to get another dog.

My kids are always asking for a dog and I keep telling them “maybe when you are older…”  However, they do play with their friends’ pets all the time.  It is sort of like having fun without the responsibility.

The pets I have illustrated are all so cute.  You can find them below and at my Etsy shop.  Doodleplix Custom Pet Portraits
