Wednesday July 4th- Seamus!

I suppose, upon reflection, that Seamus isn't exactly an all-American name, having a bit of an Irish hint to it, but seeing as I am Irish-Amerian myself, maybe that's why I felt this was a perfect dog for today~  he just struck me as the perfect Black Lab...
And here is what his owner, Megan, says about him~
'Seamus is a Labrador Retriever/Newfoundland mix rescued from the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley.  He is a laid back dog and loves to be around people.  Seamus has hunting instincts and is known to jump over the backyard fence to chase squirrels, rabbits and neighborhood cats'.

See?  Sounds like a pretty typical lab to me!
And I appreciate all the comments you've been giving me about this blog!  Please keep them coming-  I consider life to be a continual learning process....  and this project and blog are all a part of it!

Happy 4th of July!

I love this! Black dogs are such a difficult subject and your solution is perfect and appropriate for the high energy Labrador.

You can always tell a labbie by the tennis ball(s) in their mouth! This is a beautiful painting - the black richness of the coat captured in shades of blue! But I especially love the intensity of his eyes...yes, I'll throw the ball again, for the 100th time!!
