    Amy(wolfQ) did this for me as a present from Kay(Kfamr) She does such a good job. Here's her website with prices:

    She really is great at it!

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you

    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.

    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    I haven't gotten it done yet but I'd really like to. I just haven't been able to find anyplace that does one that's actually worth the money.

    I know a lady on another board that did one of shadow for free(practice) she practices on the dogs from that board but I dont know if she goes their anymore after a little squabble with another member.. I asked her to do this of shadow for my dad birthday, its much much better in real life, my dad has it framed on his wall, and she had a print hanging in a coffee shop, it was the first one sold, a man from new york has the print.

    Amy does a wonderful job! I'd say definitely worth the money.

    Shayna that portrait is great too.

    I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running
    from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you.
    I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

    Riding my bike somewhere...
    Amy did the both of these. They're hanging on my bedroom wall.

    She did this one for her art class portfolio I believe..

    Yes to both.

    A couple of years ago we had professional pics taken of Angus & Roxey (this was before we had Huney)


    And one of the both of them:

    And then I had Amy (wolf_q) do a cartoon of the both of them (she does awesome work, I would highly recommend her):
