Chelsie is a Catahoula Leopard dog mix, just over two years old. :) From what I've heard and experienced, she's pretty awesome. Is it sad that I find wanting to visit people's pets just as much a motivation in wanting to travel to far-flung climes, as wanting to meet the people themselves? Hmm.

The scan. :) Yes, one of Chelsie's eyes is lighter than the other!

The photo (this has the most accurate/natural colour).

Chelsie looks like a very, very awesome companion based on this picture. So much is going on in those eyes. :)

Great colours, and her markings are unique.

That really turned out beautifully. I remain deeply impressed with the directional fur details and am floored by how gorgeous her coat markings are.

Ohhhhh, so beautiful! I know I comment on it a lot, but I am really, really loving where your coloring has been going the past year or so.

Ooooh, I so do love Catahoula Leopard dogs! Grew up around lots of them, they're kinda an icon of Cajun country, up there with gumbo and zydeco music, lol.

She's beautiful, and you've captured her wonderfully. I particularly like her eyes, and the way the spirals in the sky change behind her.

Oooh. I wasn't expecting the dark markings! I thought she was a golden lab. XD

I love it, though!

She's gorgeous. I've met a few catahoulas when i lived in alabama.. always thought they were beautiful, though the ones i met were aloof with anyone not-their-family. which is just fine with me. :) Merle is my ultimate faaavorite color, and i love how you've painted her merle markings here. beautiful!

Oooh what a gorgeous girl! It's been a loooong time (like since I lived in Alabama back in 1998-99) that I've seen a Catahoula... just lovely!
