Today's feature pooch is Talisker... while he looks like a tough guys, as you'll see below - he is a bit softy! His owner Jessie shared the following about this one of a kind canine!
"His name is Talisker (named after the Scotch). We adopted him from Doberman Rescue Ontario when he was 3 and a half (he is 5 now). At that time, his name was Lucifer and we definitely did not want a dog named Lucifer. In changing his name we tried to pick something with the same number of syllables and similar overall sound: hence, Talisker. He's a very sweet boy but is a little rough around the edges. He's a big dog who is always trying to (adorably) cram himself into small spaces. He loves to nap in his snuggie and will do anything for food! Once, while we were at work, he ate an entire 3 lb. bag of apples!"
Thanks so much Jessie & Talisker!
PS - I can relate to a dog who will do any thing for food. As just one example -Wylan once drank about a cup of vegetable oil (he has some unpleasant side effects from this)!

Love the portrait and the background story. How talented you are with technical painted skills, (love how you handled the blacks) and skills of the heart to portray such expression. A treasured keepsake for this dog owner!
