Thank you, everyone, for the sweet congratulatory comments.
I have a little something up my sleeve to celebrate soon - stay tuned. :)

In other news, I've been working on a portrait of a  
Llasa Apso named Emiko.
I was asked by a friend to draw her.
Emiko sadly passed away not too long ago.
From what I can tell, Emiko was dearly loved by her whole family.
It is an honor to be able to memorialize her.
I hope it helps to bring back warm memories of sweet snuggles.
