There are a lot of curly ears but I didn't have troubles with this rock. Sometimes something makes work on a pet rock unusually hard, you know the feeling - you are painting and repainting and it's not there. This one was a pleasure. These big-eyed dogs are so funny and cute. They are English Toy Spaniels or Charlies. The black and tan on the right is a King Charles variety and the Tri on the left is a Prince Charles variety.
