Excellent and the eyes have so much expression in them… Well done.
Thanks for your compliments, Bootiewootsy!

Oh, this is really beautiful. Such soft, gentle eyes.
Thanks, Laurie, for your comment and favoriting.
Thanks, ROn. Jazz and I appreciate your compliment!
Jane this is neat! I love it!
Thanks, Amy. Glad you like it.
Oh I know that look so well – gorgeous shot!
Thank you, FelicityB. “That look”-yes-who says dogs can’t talk! Mine do. Do yours?
Oh yes Jane, they certainly do! There’s the “you WILL play with me” look, that “feed me I’m starving” look, (my springer has perfected that one – I’ve never known anyone so plump look so malnourished in a matter of seconds if food is about), that “yes I hear you but I don’t want to go home yet” look accompanied by a bottom being firmly plumped on the ground in protest … dogs are so eloquent!
“feed me I’m starving” look? Starts here, like clockwork every day,exactly 30 minutes before mealtime! I think the dogs can read me much better than I can read them!
Great Image Jane. Boykins have so much soul. I had Springers years ago, and I remember my younger one, Laney had a similar look in her eye. They just “know”. (if you know what I mean). I see a lot of dogs in my job and you can always tell which ones have a lot of heart just by the look in their eye. I think Jazz fits in that category. Beautiful.
Thank you, Lolabud. I imagine Springers and Boykins have many personality traits in common. Truth is Jazz knows how to “read” me even better than I can read her. She usually wins!
Jazz certainly does look bored. I like the treatment of the image too, it fits her mood & expression. j
Thanks for commenting Jesika! She WAS bored. Probably her dinnertime too! A little spoiled too!!!
Jazz is a very pretty dog. This is a wonderful portrait.
Thank you, MichelleR. I am sorry I am late in replying. WIthout realizing it til recently, I was replying to comments in the Add comment box instead of the Add Reply box. OOPS!
