In the past I have always had trouble keeping the Bernese Mountain Dog and the Swiss Mountain Dog straight. I knew one had long fur and the other had short, but its just one of those weird things I had trouble remembering (like when I worked with both a Marsha and a Martha...sorry you two for all the times I probably called you be the wrong name first before getting it right.)
Anyway, after this portrait I'll be able to remember which one is the Bernese! It takes a lot longer to do long fur (generally) but it really is fun to paint. I hope the person that owns these two Berners likes it.
