They're not often seen together in my pictures, but there at the front of the boat are 3 real (not imaginary) dogs. My two: Stanley Philpot and Moses Browndog, sandwiching Norma, Stanley's sister. The others are Hattie, Precious number Seven and dear Doris. As a point of interest, the original painting (now sold) shows a spottier Dalmatian. How'd that happen?
