He does have kind of funny eyes--really looks like an old man, imo, especially here where we can see his little chin whiskers. Outstanding portrait, Carol! The color, detail and clarity are just amazing! #5387129

Another great portrait of Hershey!! He looks great in coral too I see! Looks like typical Chihuahua eyes to me...big, bulgy and squinty a good part of the time!! #5387543

Mary K. Robison January 25, 2008

Usually Chihuahuas don't strike me as all that cute, Carol, but something about Hershey is making me fall in love! He's such a sweetie in this well-composed "portrait"! #5389998

Thank you all so much for your kind comment on Hershey and his portrait! We are really enjoying him; it has been almost 12 years since I have had a dog, and Justin has never had one. We are discovering his personality to be as funny as his looks! :D #5416363

Carol Teal February 22, 2008

Susan, Angela, Donna, and Lisa, sorry I missed responding to your kind and encouraging comments! He cocks his head like this when he hears something strange or when he seems puzzled over something. And Lisa, he does seem to have a human quality to his expressions, although I just can't decide what! #5534013

Colleen Farrell February 22, 2008

WTG, Carol! Congratulations on another well-deserved finalist! #5534045

Carol Teal February 22, 2008

Sylvia, Peaches, Judy, Paola, and Geek/City Girl, thank you all so much! I am so happy Hershey made it! He has become such a special member of the family already (and we have only had him a bit more than a month)! He has such a funny character! He barks at some of the neighbors and especially one neighbor dog (a big yellow lab) which he hates, and he even goes after our vacuum cleaner! LOL #5534049
