I’m not sure if you’ll remember me but I was in touch last year (around Sept). I had just started my pet portrait business and you ran a competition on Broadsheet. A lovely girl named Clare won a portrait of her dog Buddy.

Since then I have decided to leave my part time job and make try to make a success of Pawpawpawpawprints. I feel that a lot of the success and confidence in the idea came down to that promotion.The response was wonderful, it really helped to spread the word. Thank you.

I was wondering if you would like to run another competition for a free framed portrait for one of your readers? I think we could all do with a bit of cheering up this week.

      You need at least one dog, man…it sets something loose in the soul that is wonderful to experience. I get that you’re a city mouse, but at least try and borrow a pup for a stroll and a few games of catch. Thank me later.

    They don’t look like paintings to me, they look like computer generated cartoonified efforts, a la instagram and snapchat

          To look this consistently stylised, and cleanly finished there is an actual human graphic artist involved to a certain degree – for €50 it’s not expensive

    I very badly need a portrait of my pet owing to him looking over my shoulder barking at your other portraits.

    ‘I very badly need a portrait of my pets. Monty, Ruby, Freddy and Dolly are miniature dachshunds who drive me crazy at times (small dog = big personality). But at the end of the day they are my best friends . A home without a Dachshund is just a house as they say!

    I very badly need a portrait of my pet owing to the fact that lately she wakes up at 4am every single night to be let out for a pee.

    The picture will look great on her headstone.

    I very badly need a portrait of my pet (actually it’s not my pet, it’s the beloved and long-departed cat of my partner) owing to the fact she’s got a birthday coming up soon and not only am I flummoxed on what to get her, I’m also flat broke :(

    I very badly need a portrait of our puppy Bruce owing to the fact that if he keeps eating the Sunday papers he may not have much time left in this world – it would be nice to have something to remember his handsome little face by.

    I very badly need a portrait of my pet cat Mimi of 10 years owing to having to get her put down two weeks ago and collecting her ashes today! And having 3 very sad kids who grew up with her.

    ‘I very badly need a portrait of my pet owing to the fact that my cat Figs who I rescued from the claws of death now prefers my boyfriend as he works from home and has corrupted my cat. The portrait would be nice for work to remind me how much I love him as he seems to save all his scratching and biting for me now while my boyfriend gets all the lap-sitting and purring.
