Here is an update of Sam's portrait. I'm just starting to work on he messy looking fur. The soft-coated Wheaten terrier's coat has shades of caramel, especially on the back, legs and ears, vanilla and dark browns to black around the muzzle and eyes. Sam was described as a goofy character, as shown here with his tongue hanging out sideways.
