A Picture Says a Thousand Words

If that's the case, what does a painting say? Well, if you're Twitter friends, it's no more than 140 characters, but those 140 characters can build meaningful relationships, like the one I've built with the very talented artist Leigh Jackson of Noisy Dog Studio.

After numerous late-night chats about our pups (she has the most adorable Boston Terriers), she asked me if she could paint Seka. Leigh had instantly fallen in love with her eyes. Who knew a greyhound's eyes could be a muse?

I think the end result really captures Seka's spirit and especially her dreamy eyes. I can't wait to get my hands on the original painting, but I'm sure she'll be happy to sell you a print if you ask her. Check out her blog and submit your dog's picture for her to paint for possible inclusion for her calendar project.

Wow!! They say eyes are the window to the soul, and I think she captured Seka eyes - and thus her soul!! Beautiful.
