Lily is my niece and we were given this puppy by her family. She came with a name that Lily had chosen, after one of her imaginary friends. And for the next seventeen years that Ledus lived with us, people would ask ‘Why is your dog called Ledus?’ I couldn’t resist giving the question back to Lily when I painted this portrait for her twenty first. Now she has to explain why.
