Beassell or Rugle?
On the scale of cuteness, this one is about 12.

A Jack Russell Terrier / Beagle cross, Cody had enough energy for two puppies when I met him. He provided ample entertainment for a group of parents "watching" the longest t-ball game of the season last August (over two hours) and he was a lot more fun than the game! The photo for this coloured pencil drawing was taken in one of the rare moments when he took a short break to look at his admirers and drink some water.

This was one of the fastest portraits I have ever drawn and I enjoyed it tremendously. Coloured pencils definitely are a very versatile medium and I'm loving them more and more.

If anyone would like to have their puppy, dog or cat immortalized in a portrait such as this, please visit

This pet portrait of Cody is absolutely adorable!!! His vitality and his 'puppy essence' just jump out at me. He looks like a cute little dog, and I really want to cuddle him!!!
