Spokespup, Mako met visionary artist, C.Re' recently for a photo session at Lazy Days Restaurant in Islamorada, Florida. This, amazingly, is C.Re's first official portrait of a dog.  Enjoy these photos of C.Re' getting just the right photo that depicted the personality of our adorable Spokespup, Mako. It is fun to watch Mako work. She has been featured in national dog magazines and has been the subject of hundreds of videos and has raised a lot of money for dogs that are less fortunate than she is. Mako started working when she was about 2 years old, always with the goal of helping doggies that didn't find loving parents like she did.

C.Re' is a one of the artists in the Virtual Artist Colony. See more of her work by clicking here. To visit her website click on

                           A message from Mako's Daddy
Over the years we have had many portraits created of Mako and although we love each and every one of them, C.Re' has captured subtle nuances of Mako that her daddy (and mommy) immediately recognized. The hair coming from Mako's arms seems real and her tongue is absolutely kissable! A photo depicts the exact duplication of an image, but a portrait brings out the more personal connection we have with our loved ones. I have visited C.Re's studio and witnessed her process in person and can truly say that she is one of the most talented humans alive. We are proud to have C.Re' as part of our website and humbled that she chose Mako as the subject of her first official dog portrait. Mako's loving daddy, Ric
