WOOF! Thank you for visiting i heart dogs studio, the home of pet portraits lovingly painted by me, Christine Humphries Throckmorton. Since 2007, I have created custom pet portraits, prints, cards, and more, all featuring lovable canines (and the occasional feline). Scroll down, take a look around, click away. You'll see a wide variety of pet portraits, and get to know a bit about the girl behind the canvas.
PLEASE NOTE: Now that I have a toddler, I am no longer accepting commissions. For now, I am shelving the paintbrushes and just enjoying being MOM. I have a variety of original paintings, prints, and cards available in my shop, however, and there is a lot of dog art to peruse in the pages of this here blog. Enjoy.

My parents' dog, Abby, just had major knee surgery. Her kneecap kept slipping out of place and prior to surgery, she couldn't run or play for weeks. We couldn't bring Rosie around her, which was so sad because they are best friends. Last week, Abby was operated on at the wonderful University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital. She is now home, and is crate-bound for a month. I spent a few days with my mom, helping her with Abby. It's so sad to see how much Abby wants to run around, but can't. Her one hind leg is shaved and she looks kinda like a poodle (they kept her foot fluffy). She is so sweet and it seems she is handling it in stride. Hopefully, soon, she'll be tearing up the backyard with Rosie.
