My dogs love pears and 'pick' them from the lower branches of the fruit trees we pass on daily walks. I was told that the core is harmful to them so must monitor their consumption.
One of the dogs, Ruby, is very sneaky and hides them in her mouth.
This is painted from a pear rescue reference-don't you think tooth marks enhance the overall feel of the work ?
