Skye the Cairn Terrier is one of my parents' three dogs. She is 12 years old. When she was younger we would hit Wiffle balls with a bat in the backyard and she would run as fast as she could to get them. Nowadays, she still enjoys spending the majority of her time hanging out outside. She likes to watch the birds and squirrels play, and she takes naps on the back porch.

Sorry for lack of posts this week! I've been hard at work with several commissions, as well as finishing up this piece. These are my dogs, Cassie and Finn. They are dashing through the snow in typical Border Collie fashion! I have been working hard trying to improve my backgrounds and lighting. I think I am coming along. I am so used to just drawing or painting the subject with no (or very minimal) background. It is always good to challenge myself and get out of my comfort zone! This was digitally painted in Photoshop with my Wacom Mobile Studio Pro.

A very big and fluffy Alaskan Malamute! He is loving being in his natural snowy environment. This breed for their strength and endurance to pull heavy things. As a result, they make great sled dogs! 

It has been a cold week here in Wilmington, so they snowy scene seemed almost fitting. Although we don't get much snow here. I'm a fan of warmer weather, so I am (very much) looking forward to Spring warming up...and I hope soon! Have a great weekend friends!

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi, an adorable little dog with cute little stumpy legs. I found out recently that the Corgi was originally bred for cattle herding! Now that's something I would love to see!

This is Finley! Our new (and quickly growing) puppy! He is also a border collie, but is of red/white coloring. He is opposite in personality to Cassie. He is more laid back, lower energy and very affectionate. He doesn't seem to mind Cassie's bossiness, and plays very gently with her. When he does get burst of energy he likes to zoom around the backyard or chase after Cassie when she is trying to catch her Kong Frisbee. 

This is my sweet girl, Cassie. She is a black sable border collie. She is two years old now, and loves her frisbee. Actually, she is obsessed with her frisbee. If she could play with her frisbee all day and everyday, I have no doubt that she would! We like to do agility, which is a dog sport that involves an obstacle course of jumps, weaves, tunnels, and many other obstacles. Cassie is so fast that I sometimes have a hard time keeping up! I hope that we can improve out skills enough and do competitions some day!
