About Portuguese Water Dogs

As I have a Portuguese Water Dog these fantastic dogs are very close to my heart!

They are intelligent, strong, energetic, sensitive and affectionate. Historically a seafaring dog, the “Portie” worked alongside Portuguese sailors for centuries, earning his share of each day's catch of saltwater codfish.

Porties worked tirelessly, swimming to retrieve broken nets, diving to herd schools of fish, and acting as a barking foghorn. They also carried messages between boats, and to shore and acted as guard dogs, protecting the sailors' fishing trawlers and their homes.

One important job was to prevent gulls from landing on the boat and stealing the catch. My Portuguese Water Dog (Figo) does his best to prevent birds landing in our garden - I wonder if he thinks he is protecting our ‘catch’?

Framing

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.
