This is my dog, Archie, who was 11 years old when this picture was completed. He is sitting on one of his favourite rocks, on Thurstaston Hill (National Trust), against a background of his second favourite walk, Caldy Hill. I drew this mainly because I wanted a record of Archie as a mature dog, but I hope it portrays his kind nature and his calm attitude to life.
