Our Dakota, looking as breathtaking as ever - such a wonderful sight to see. We almost lost him a little over a month ago; due to severe pancreatitis. Got him to the Vet's just in time, thank Heaven. He is now rarin' to go!! Converted to b/w, a tad of Topaz Adjust.

He's a beauty, Pamela...looking very regal and "on the alert"...so happy you got him to the Vet's in time and that he's back to being himself once again. His coloring lends itself well to your b/w conversion....good choice and a super portrait! #8791586

He sure is beautiful, Pamela -- so glad he's doing fine once again! And to answer your question, yes, the painted hands are still on the fence in Mill Creek's family garden. In fact, a couple of years ago our granddaughter took a picture of it, and it won 1st prize in the park's annual photo contest (youth division -- she was 10 at the time...) #8791938
