New pattern- Skye Terrier

Another fairly uncommon breed..
I met two of these pups at the Chagrin Falls Polo field dog show a couple of years ago- 2007 maybe? I have been working on this pattern for a while and have been struggling with it since they are one of those breeds with the hair always in the eyes, and I have found that it is hard to make a dog or any animal's face come 'alive' if you can't see at least one eye.. But I think I came up with a good compromise that worked well here.
They were sweet pups, very cute, and their owners/handlers were very nice to me as well.. :)

New pattern- Clumber Spaniel

This guy was from the Crown Classic show this past December. I met him near the end of the show when he was wandering around with his person. I was smiling at him because he had such a cute face, and his owner offered me pets. I sat down with him for a couple minutes, and he was very sweet and happy to meet me. And he had the softest ears!! :)
