This is a picture I did for my little friend Nevaeh, to whom I am an Honorary Uncle because her mum is one of my best friend's from childhood.
The other day Nevaeh's mum Sophie got in contact with me to tell me that following the Britain's Got Talent final where a performing dog won, Nevaeh had formulated a plan which she (Nevaeh) believes will make her win next year's competition and propel her to SUPER STARDOM!
The plan is as follows:
Nevaeh to her Mum:
"I'm sure Uncle Alex will let me borrow one of his tiny dogs to train with for next years show?
Imagine what tricks we could do? Do you think the girly one would do some ballet with me?
Nanny's Bailey is far to BIG and stinky!"
My dogs, as most of you know, are two tiny, very naughty chihuahuas. I say good luck to Nevaeh if she thinks she can train them, because I can't!
The image of this plan really made me laugh. I couldn't imagine my boy chihuahua, Mr Billy Bongo, being too pleased about squeezing into a tutu, so I decided to draw Nevaeh as a Circus performer instead.
It's Nanny's poor boxer dog Bailey who I feel sorry for. I'm sure a spritz of perfume and a jazzy bow would make the world of difference...
So keep your eyes peeled on BGT next year as you might see my two pooches sashaying around the stage with an excitable 5 year old. They'd certainly get my vote!
