This is a digital painting I made of Rocco, a dear friend’s sweetheart pug.

She told me one Valentine’s Day that Rocco was the fattest she had ever seen him. So I went about trying to imagine what he might look like completely round and so fat that his eyes were almost popping out of his skull. This is what I came up with.

Rocco passed away about a year and a half ago. I believe that Rocco is an angel now, enjoying the best cookies heaven has to offer.

xoxo Rocco! We miss you!
