Watercolor Black Pug Painting

I just finished up this digital watercolor painting of Ch. Coryrex's Shooting Star and wanted to share it with you all and see what you think. Do you like it?

I'm new to Photoshop so it's a huge learning curve for me, but I'm getting better at it as I go along. I have used Paint Shop Pro for so many years it's hard to switch, but Photoshop can do so much more.

In any case, it started out as a normal photograph and it took me about 2 hours to add the colors, details and such. I like how it turned out. And it has that "Pop Art" look to it. I'll try a fawn Pug next time.

What do you think?

Thou shall not STEAL my Pug puppy pictures!

You know it's a bit rude when you wake up to find that someone has created what I would call a scam website, impersonating themselves as a breeder and using pictures of your Pugs and claiming them as their own. Should I be flattered? I know my puglets are cute but sheesh! Why do folks have to resort to stealing and using my pictures?

I'm not going to give these folks any additional exposure, but will tell you that if you come across a website with the name "amazing" in the URL and it looks like a Pug breeder...BEWARE. These folks have pictures of my puppies plastered all over their gallery page, available puppy page and they also have a picture of a girl that I bred, claiming that she is one of the momma's.

Here are a few of the pictures so you can be aware if you see these on any other site but mine, you'll know that it's a scam site.

New Pug Fella at Arvay Pugs!

I'd like you all to meet Ch. Coryrex's Shooting Star aka "Gordy". He comes to us from Coryrex Pugs out in California. We are really thrilled to have such a handsome black boy as a new member of our family and breeding program. He is a real sweetheart! We hope to have a litter sired by Gordy in the near future.
