Zooey’s Animal Print request came not long after she’d passed away. Her New York Mama sent in a few photos for Gadora to work on.

We’d debated on her “puffer” pic (it’s cooooold in New York after all), but wisely chose her favorite spots… she was a perfectly happy poodle in her bed…
Or in her people’s lap…

While her pictures came in hi-res, it ultimately proved difficult to translate her dark locks into watercolor. But, Gadora worked her hair… and sent her portraits out. “I just got the paintings and they are wonderful! I’ve been so excited to see them, and they turned out even better than I expected. You did a great job capturing Zooey and I can’t wait to hang them up. It’s going to be a great memorial to her.”
Here’s a bonus pic of Zooey in her Puffer. She was certainly a cutie-patoot-oodle and is no doubt deeply missed.
