This is Bruce. He was the dog that started it all. He is my ultimate muse. He was a saggy eyed, floppy mouthed, drooly boy and everyone that knew Bruce loved him. He never understood that a 90 pound boxer wasn't supposed to be a lap dog. He never understood that drooling to the floor wasn't necessarily the most attractive thing in the world. He would put his head on your shoulder and hug you when you were down and he would lick you senseless when you laughed. His face made me want to draw and paint and I will forever be grateful to him for that.
