Can you believe that this is a rag rug? Jackie Hervey is a German Shepherd owner and lover of the breed. Her current shepherd is called Cooper and he did the modeling for the cartoon. Jackie posed him lying down as he might do on a rug. She then photographed the posed dog, put a grid over the photo and made a cartoon, elongating the dog silhouette so that when the rug was finished she hoped it would be an accurate replica of how Cooper looked in the photo. In the next photo, Jackie is holding the cartoon and the stripe plan for the rug.
