The Eyes Have It


Sometimes, we are taking pictures and just become mesmerized with the beauty of the eyes of a dog.


Both of Cheoah's eyes are "parti-eyes" - the left half blue and half brown and the right a brown eye with a single blue dot (Click the picture to enlarge).


Mr. Frankie "Brown Eyes" wanted to get into this conversation, but struggles with distance from the camera.

    Cheoah is a pretty girl with beautiful, amazing eyes! And Frankie is a handsome boy with big sad brown eyes, like my dog’s.

    I’m still in awe of that portrait every time I look at it! I made it through KB’s post, but then Kathleen’s video got the waterworks going for me.

    I think Cheoah has fantastic eyes! Have you tried photographing her up a little closer than that outside? I’m betting that would make a stunning portrait!

    My Hu-Mom says my eyes are like “Golden Honey”, but Ice’s eyes are a really, “Ice Blue”, the kind of eyes that when he is looking at her, he is seeing right inside her. Hu-Mom says that’s the eyes of the “Spirit Dog”, that don’t look AT you, they look INSIDE you.
