Making a few amendments to Cole Porter’s lyrics, the owners often sang this song to their Yoshka. It was fun to find and integrate the sheet music, shifting the sequencing in areas to fit around the dog. As long as one doesn’t play the piano, the song works just fine!

It was fascinating to draw Yoshka at many ages. He was the most dignified of dogs. I always fall in love with the dogs I paint, and Yoshka is particularly dear to me.
