Mo's Retriever Puppy

When I saw that Mo Manning had drawn a Retriever Puppy I knew I had to colour him up. Both my mum and sister have had retrievers and I have some fond memories of them. I remember when we were living in Singapore and came home for Christmas - we stayed at my mums and my kids LOVED her 2 dogs. But one night my then 3yo son got up in the night to come to find us - but instead got 2 wet noses checking HIM out and making sure he was OK. Poor Toby got such a fright and let out the BIGGEST scream - waking the whole house up and scaring the dogs witless - LOL.

Retrievers are such gentle and sweet dogs - but they certainly have a mischievous side to them too - and it was fun to add in some of Mo's Doggone Sweet Elements  (which include the sentiment and 5 puppy toys). What new puppy owner has NOT been presented with a chewed up shoe, or sock - LOL.
