    These are great! I can sense the personalities of each and am reminded of so many dogs I’ve known and loved.

    I agree – these are absolutely fantastic and really capture the different characters of the various dogs. Bonnie made me go “ahhhhh – what a sweetie!”, Dora is really cute, Huxley made me laugh and Reggie and Rocket look like really tough guys but probably have hearts of gold.

    And looking closely I see that lots of the dogs have very small bits of white mosaic in their eyes which makes all the difference I bringing them to life.

    Brilliant work yet again – well done to Tessa and her team!

    Tessa Hunkin is a master and a national treasure. I hope she is acknowledged for her outstanding work and contributions.

    I would love for Diana pawPrints and Freyja Grey to be immortalized but they have no right to be hanging on a wall in Hackney Downs as neither they nor I are ever likely to go there let alone live there. But if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to have all of my current and past dogs immortalized.

    Now….where are the cats?
