Isn't he a cutie? This is Sarge, a recent commission for a holiday present. It never ceases to amaze me, and almost stuns me, that when I paint the eyes in on an animal, they come to life for me! I am such a dog person - I will stop & pet almost any dog walking past me. All you have to do is look at them, smile & call them "puppy." If the tail wags, they are acknowledging and are happy to receive your attention. No matter how old the dog is, they are still a puppy to me, because in the animals heart they are still the young pup. We as adults could learn a lot from these wonderful animals.
