:D Do you do commisions? What would a painted Dog-Picture cost? (I couldn't afford it anyway at the moment, but... :D)

Great work, she's such a beautiful dog. I love Australian Shepherds, but Mom has something against them for some reason, so I won't be able to get one. :/

Lol. I didn't think anyone would even notice. XD I felt like trying to spruce it up but didn't want to change it too much. I think of it as my "face" or logo around here that people who know me recognize and didn't want to interfere with that. Maybe I'll go back to the old one or edit it further down the road. :)

This is beyond love, and she looks like my Border Collie- he just has different colours! But the face <3 The face and the smile and the eyes, it makes me want to cry with cute and happy. Can't speak, words won't do it justice <3

I love animal faces <3 They're so expressive! My dog makes a very similar face when he's happy and it really does look like they're smiling when they do that <3

Their happiness is so simple but so fulfilling- its contagious. When I'm walking my own dog I sometimes end up walking down the street, grinning like an idiot because little things like the way he wags his tail when he walks are just so damn adorable!
