This is written by hand, in pencil, below the dog tag image and above the signature (like the example in the picture for Benson the Labrador).

Bright and bouncy, Boxers are often called “The Peter Pan of Dogs” because they never seem to grow up. Though they look elegant and athletic, Boxers love to play the fool, jumping and romping their way through life in search of fun.
However, underneath all the fun and frolics lies a serious side. Bred to work - a versatile jack of all trades - Boxers have fulfilled a variety of roles with aplomb - from hunting deer and boar to guarding and defending both people and property. They were also used in war time as guards and couriers.
Yet they have an innate desire to help and make wonderful therapy dogs, narcotics detectors and search & rescue dogs. With their charming personalities and unique expressive faces, it’s no wonder that these madcap, mischievous dogs have become such popular companions.
I make custom vintage style frames for my prints. Whenever possible I use reclaimed wood and each frame has its own pattern of knots, dinks, scratches, nail holes, wonky edges and aged patina.
Currently frames are available in reclaimed pine, hand-painted in Old White with a chalky matt finish. Frames are approximately 38 cms (15”) square and are fitted with crystal clear acrylic ‘glass’. They come ready to hang.
These prints also fit very nicely into standard frames, such as the Ikea Ribba 52x52 cm square frame, using the included matt/mount of 29x29 cms.
