I've worked from many pet photographs in the past and the quality is sometimes not as good as with photographs submitted for house portraits. While houses do not move, animals do. The rule of submitting several photographs for best results would apply here.

This pet portrait was painted from two photographs: the pose came from an image of a middle-aged Casey, and the coloring from Casey's most recent photo as an older dog. Yes, dogs really do get gray hair, just like people.
