Black Dog is a series inspired by the first dog in the series Bagheera, a young Belgian Malinois. As a competitive sports dog Bagheera is an amazing animal, fast, powerful, clever, inquisitive and dynamic in every way. Watching her train I was struck by her as an image of doggy perfection and had an idea to put her on a pedestal to celebrate this. The project aims to look at all types, sizes, and breeds of Black Dog in an acknowledgement of the human / canine bond, the reverence we place upon this and that all dogs are perfect to someone. This is Horatio the super Pug!
