Started the first portrait. I won't tell you what type of dog it is, but the Queen of England has a bunch of them. Unbearably cute! I'll bring it to classes with me this week - the portrait, not the dog.
Argus, my dog is doing the same - able to get up on his own, which is a great improvement. I bought him a rug to stand on while he eats so he doesn't slide around. It really helps. I need to get rugs for all over the house.
