A Toast to Paddy

Marina is commissioned to do a pet portrait of Paddy, as a birthday gift for his owner Lex. But Lex doesn’t want Paddy to sit for the portrait or Marina anywhere near them. She perseveres and Lex had to agree to beach walks with Paddy and him. So, when Marina had all the material she needed, why was Lex and Paddy still wanting her to go for walks?


Would Marina agree to something more than friendship with Lex?
