SAM #12/50

8x8 oil on canvas panel
This is Sam who belongs to the incredibly talented, Dana Cooper. I love Sam's intense gaze and his ready stance to jump off the ottoman and bark at the cat across the street/fetch his ball/attack his squeaky rat...oh wait a minute, I got carried away and was thinking of my little Cowgirl pup. I'm certain Dana's Sam is well-behaved with impeccable manners, unlike Cowgirl.

Il m'a l'air bien fripon ce petit Sam! Très joueur sans doute!...
Une adorable et belle peinture... Un magnifique travail dans son pelage et une jolie capture de son regard sous sa touffe de poils!
Gros bisous

You really captured Sam's personality Angela!! You didn't confuse him with Cowgirl at all, he is exactly as you describe.
I am afraid he is going to get a big head with all this attention though!
