How much is that doggy in the window?

Isn’t that German Shepherd puppy in the window cute?

Anne Cram did it for me when I had Turk, the beautiful Shepherd who came into my life when I lived up in Connecticut in the late 90s. Actually, another artist painted the background with a Shep puppy, but I wanted it to look more like my dog and Anne offered to paint out Shepherd #1 and re-work the dog from a photo I had of baby Turk. The canvas is not for sale.  I just thought I’d let Turkey Workey, which is what I called him, come out and see what I’ve been up to these days.
