Miss Mia’s Chihuahua Message Series

When life gets to hectic, what’s better than a chihuahua rushing to her human to whisk away the day’s worries with a little kiss, some cuddling, a lot of tail wagging and some enthusiastic “Glad You Are Home” barking.

Taken with a Canon EOS Rebel XS.
The shot of Mia, the chihuahua, was taken near Lake Isabella, California. The sunset was taken off Highway 178 nearing Onyx, California.

Featured in “A Class of Its Own Art Gallery” September 2010. (Thank you!)

Featured in “Artistic Assignments” April 2011. (Thank you!)

The original shot had a plain sandy background and appeared like this:

Photoshop was used to clip out the background of the original shot, install the sunset and smooth the edges. (To install the sunset, I select the background and use “paste into”. This lets me move the background around to the best position. Alternatively a new layer could be used.)

This piece is also available with a black background as Chihuahua to the Rescue On Black.

    Oh this is excellent!!! Your little darling looks so happy…that makes me smile heaps :):):)

  • Thank you!
    She was out in the front yard wanting to chase squirrels.
    I called to her, and she got this big happy look on her face and ran right to me. It was so precious.

    Hi Corri, please give her a HUGE cuddle from me…she is a real sweetheart. :)

  • Thank you again.
    She likes to sleep cuddled up around my neck, so I gave her an extra cuddle from you. My husband giggled at me, but Mia appreciated it. :)

    absolutely brilliant, really made me laugh :) great work and I liked the description that goes with it :)

  • She’s a spunky little thing.
    Just wait until I break out her bike helmet and goggles…or take her kayaking in her lovely little life jacket. That should get a giggle out of you too I hope. :)
