Look at those soulful eyes...the heart of the world is in those eyes.
Happy New Year Sam!

Brian--
If training counts, your liver is up to the task.

Loriann--
The next bone is in those eyes.

He's got the nose to sniff out who's naughty and nice! Happy New Year, Sam!

Carol King said...

Whoa! That doggie looks like he's watching and waiting....and no bad people are getting in!

Great painting.

Happy New Year!

Being that wall-eyed gives him a super-wide scope on things. Good equipment for a watchdog.

I love this up-close dog portrait.

Bonnie Luria said...

Everything that dog could ever hope to say is in this portrait.
I'd hang him over the bed and fore-go the garlic around the neck for a talisman.
Must read: The Art of Racing in the Rain.
For dog lovers- none better.

Bonnie--
Racing in the Rain is excellent. It gets you right into Enzo's mind. (Universal bought the rights, and Patrick Dempsey is playing Dennie. Not too bad, eh? Me, I want to know who's playing Enzo.)
I'll see you and raise you with "A Dog's Purpose", by Bruce Cameron. It gets you into a dog's soul.

Bonnie Luria said...

Sam- thanks for the update. I'd see it just for P.D.
Will check the other book.
I nominate Mojito for Enzo. Tell Jala to start his grooming regimen.

SamArtDog said...

Mojito is just another pretty face, like PD. Jazzy, on the other paw, IS Enzo.

Jala Pfaff said...

Just another pretty snout, you mean (Mojito).
Big Brother Canine is watching you!

Linda Popple said...

Just found you blog. Really fun!! :-)

SamArtDog said...

Thanks, Linda. Come again!

I love his KNOWS! I feel infinitely more secure knowing that he's watching over me.
Hugs and kisses to him and Happy New Year to you both!
The expression in those eyes of his is astounding!
