NEW ZEALAND MINT HONORS DOGS AND PIGS

"Artist Sally Logue, from Kirkoswald, near Penrith, has been
asked to produce portraits of photogenic pigs for the New
Zealand Mint.

She has already had a selection of canine portraits used to
mark the current lunar Year of the Dog."

Ms Logue said: "The New Zealand Mint contacted me last year
to see if I could provide them with a series of drawings of dogs.

"I thought it was a bit of a wind up at first because they
said the coins would be issued in Cambodia, sold in Russia
and minted in New Zealand.

"But now we have three Cumbrian dogs with the king of Cambodia
on the other side."

"Now they are looking for pigs, but it's not certain exactly
what kind of pig they want. So I thought it would be good to
have a portfolio to show them.

"So I am looking for people who might want to have a portrait
done of their pig."
