Soupy? Soupie?? Soupey??? Soopie????

(decorating and painting a number of items, and trying to draw a good Soupy the corgi)
I told you last week that they got an adorable corgi named Soupy across the street. I have been trying to draw her ever since, and I got what I wanted. You have to a) make a blocky body b) make those big elf ears sticking up and c) keep the nose pointed down. This little dish will be for Soupy, a surprise, and I wrote her name on the bowl permanently then I was like "damn, did I spell it right???? HOW DO YOU SPELL SOUPY?" and thanks to FB, I found that I had it correct :)

Gutsy little dogs, bred for cow herding. Short enough to be missed by a kicking hoof, strong and determined enough to grab a tail and hang on!
Sometimes called vicious, but only by those who mistreat them and don't understand a dog that wont be cowed (!)

What a beautiful dog, I can see why she's inspired you so.

Awww...what a cutie Soupy is. I bet Soupy is loving the special bowl.

What a gorgeous dog Soupy is and she is gonna love her new bowl.

ha ha. Hopefully she can't read and then it won't matter if you spelled her name incorrectly - she'll just be so pleased with the bowl (especially if there are treats in it)
