Snickers: A 15 X 15 pet portrait. Snickers is a Rat Terrier. She is no ordinary dog. My daughter's family belongs to her. Her eyes tell you that she is an old soul with much wisdom and energy. The first time I belonged to her, she stood on all fours on my lap and looked deeply into my eyes. She was reading me to see if I was worthy of her trust. Once she determined that I could be manipulated, she curled up and took her nap. Snickers (or Snicker Doddle as she is affectionately known) loves snacks. One of her favorites is the Milk Bones. When you ask her if she wants a snack, she begins to prance around and get excited. The family had resorted to spelling the word S-N-A-C-K, but she soon learned the spelling and that no longer worked. Her favorite sport is to steal the toys of the grandchildren and make them chase her. But she is considerate, and will finally hesitate long enough for them to catch her. Many Snicker's bars were destroyed by my husband so that I could copy the wrappers onto photo fabric. He said he was happy to sacrifice himself to the cause.
