Tess wants a biscuit! Shes got the eyes!
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Hahahahaaaaa...it really look s as though she's saying that !Please let me have one! Oh please...oh please..." Well spotted m'dear! ;-)
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Oh yes, so recognize that look! LOL
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
So regal, I like his pose---wonderful work, David!
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Hahahaaaaa thank you again Cirrelia! Tess isn't one for the camera, so was looking at the boss to see if she could get away. The unwanted pose worked well in the end...
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Aren't dogs so grand? They never cease to amuse and amaze me...wondrous creatures!
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Sure do Cirrelia! I've got a rescue German Shepherd (he's in my portfolio) who never stops making me smile. Found out the other day that he howls along to a whistle being blown...hilarious!!!
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Lol, David...He sounds precious...I love that breed...so gallant....you are lucky to have one :)
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Yes, I'm pleased that I rescued him from the joyless existence he was living. For the past 13 months he's been involved in a life he previously didn't no existed - which the big fella deserves! Take a look at him in my portfolio...he really is a handsome brute (and apparently rare; to have such a long coat as WELL as being so huge is not overly heard of).
Ann Supan - Over 30 days ago
I just can't forget the look on those eyes :)
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Thank you so much, Ann - your words are so pleasing :-)
Nautilia Clerc - Over 30 days ago
Your shading of quality bring out this dog features wonderfully. I like the light in his eye. Nautilia
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Thanks so much Nautilia. I try to give special attention to the eyes of whatever animal I draw - tends to give life to them (or so I've been told!) :-)
Ashley Cannuli - Over 30 days ago

David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
