In every dog there lies a hidden persona...
is a hidden world that dog owners do not know or percieve. Where our
beloved four pawed friends travel when their paws are a twitter and
twitching... have you ever wondered what they are dreaming about? We
can only guess what vast world they are exploring. This webpage is
dedicated the artwork of the Conquistodogs a grand world the likes of
which we two-leggers can only imagine!
real life she was my beloved Shetland Sheepdog, Calypso. A loyal and
dutiful companion who loved to chase trees on walks. Her antics
reminded me very much of Don Quixote with his windmills and the story
began. Her real life adventure ended in spring of 2008 when she passed
on from kidney failure. She may be gone, but her adventures are only
Pomeranian with all the grit and guts, Fizzgig does not know his own
size is quite small. Doesn't bother him one bit. Sancho Fizzgig is Don
Qui-lypso's companion in exploration. Ready to take on the world and
more he is loyal and dedicated to her. He hopes one day to become more
than just a sword carrier. He is based on my mpther's real life Pom, Fizzgig.
Parcquer De Leon
great explorer of the world, Parcquer's curiosity knows no bounds. He
has a lust for life and many other things for that matter. This grand
Conquistodog is searching for the fountain of eternal love... or is
that life? Well, this Rough Collie does get a bit confused every so
often. He is based on Parker, a retired show Collie who lives with me.
Ion De Leon
is not alone in his wanderings, his young adventurous nephew Ion De
Leon also accompanies him. The little explorer in training is all out
for having a grand time. Knowing not a lick of fear, Ion's enthusiasm
is a recipe for trouble... of the amusing kind! Yes, in reality Ion is
truely Parker's nephew as in the photo above.
portrait portrays him as the Meso-American ball warrior. My real life devoted Border Collie is obsessed with the
game of fetch. He's a nut overflowing with charm, whit, and character.
A real charmer. His alter ego is based on the Meso-American ball
players of old, an El Dogrado ball court warrior and guardian. Let no
one stand between him and his goal...
Tali makes the perfect shaman in training. Another Pomeranian who is unaware of her
size, this El Dogradian imp wants to take on the whole of the new
world! Where her little paws tread trouble is SURE to follow!! She is based on my mother's real life Pom, Taliesin.
Mya cuts a more peaceful pose. A Brittany with a tude, she's a kind
soul if a bit excitable. In El Dogrado she is a shaman. She's my husband's real life Brittany.
Stay tuned for more artwork on this ongoing project!
