I have been waiting to post this pet portrait for about 4 weeks so that I would not (in some round-about way) ruin a surprise for our friend, Dan.
I was commissioned for this portrait by another friend of ours. I was watching Wedge one day while Dan and Alan were out and planned to get some photos of him that day...and then Dan and Alan returned early. So I was following Wedge around with a camera as if I thought he was so cute that I just had to have a pic of him, trying to be as discreet as possible. I'm sure Dan thought I was a total weirdo.
Anyhow, I think he was kept in the dark until the unveiling of his very own pet portrait on Christmas Day.
