Great studies! haha when I saw that drawing of the dog I thought it was my own for a second, a springer spaniel right? I have one too, and my sisters dog is called charlie lol, weirdness!
lol its actually a shi tzu and its my aunt's dog. But it's a very non-shi tzu looking thing when you arent seeing it from the front. Otherwise that would have been a pretty eerie coincidence =)
