Default Custom Dog Engraving

Curious if anyone here has had a custom gun made featuring engraving of a dog they have had?

Would like to see some, have a project in mind that Id like to feature my 11 year old setter on in some way.

I know Rich Anderson and Gary Carmichael have done this and the results were spectacular.

I had Tony Gs engraver put my best bird dog on the bottom of the Fox XE 16 he made for me. It was done from a drawing I supplied him. It is a valued gun.

J.J. Roberts, master engraver, is just across town from me. He runs a shop as well as an engraving school. I met him at a local show, where he was manning the table representing the Firearms Engraver's Guild of America. My kids took interest and he sent us home with a packet to encourage them to get involved. I just pulled it off the shelf...his business card shows a side panel with a dog engraved....Sounds like this is what you are looking for. He had some sample plates of on the table of such things...out of this world. Pic of his card is attached. Quick search here also shows he is a member of this forum, although his last post was 2019. I think it was ~2 years ago I bumped in to him.

Gournet has done many. Here is an example of one in Bulino.

In my view J J remains a very underappreciated talent. He upgraded two Browning A-5s, one 12 gauge and one 16 gauge to a modified FN Type IV engraving pattern. On a friendly challenge from a noted Browning collector, he perfectly duplicated Felix Funken's "Smiling Dog" on the rear of the receiver on the 16 gauge. Attached photo shows an original example of Funken's work; unfortunately J J recently sold both guns so I have no comparison photo of his work, but I can tell you it was good!
