Creating a portrait of Scoobie - 30 x 40cms Pastel

I'm creating a pastel portrait of a lovely terrier at the moment. I am having fun with colour! He is so cute.
  I'm having a ball with Pastel. The portrait is 30 x 40cms image size which is a great size for him.I've been given permission to enhance his colour and it's looking great!
 Here is the reference photo.
He is inside a tent New years day 2005.The photo isn't an ideal reference photo as it isn't sharp and his eyes and nose are just black blobs but it is such a happy pose and I have found a sharper photo to help with the details.
Some paintings seem to paint themselves effortlessly and his is one of them.I think the portrait is almost finished but I'll sit on it for a while and have a fresh look.
