Is it possible to take a picture of her sideways so they will see her entire body? Can you just snap a pic of her on your phone and use it?

I am wanting to do a painting of my neighbors' dog for Christmas and am wondering what would be better - do I do a full body or a portrait (head shot)? My reference photo I have now is full body facing me. I am not quite sure how to do the head shot without it looking like her head is cut off even though I often see ones that look great. Abby has lymphoma and I just want them to have a nice painting of her if I can pull it off.

Can someone give me some idea? I would post the photo here that I am working from, but Walgreens deleted it from my phone when I got it printed.

The little fix, showed the mower was gone, they changed it out and discover that the fan was so wobbly it could break loss and fly though the side. So it will this morning before they get the fan. I'm wondering if a new AC is in order. I know they are looking $5-7,000 and people with rental property don't want to spend the money, but how much are they spending with bandaids and upset renters. When my daughter called him he said it was just a $12 part over the phone when she called before he looked at it, sounds like he has been fixing the AC

Hope the air conditioning got fixed.

We were back to the 90s today with a high of 93. Since it was in the 70s last week and got really cold during the night, my house has been cold even with the high outside. That is crazy.

My daughter took her boys, she is off today so took the 2 oldest to school and is entertaining the 2 year old herself. The landlord said he will have the AC fixed this morning. I sure hope it is what he thinks it is and it can be fixed that fast

We cooled down during the last week, but this week is supposed to get back to the 90s. In the house it has been cold, particularly in the mornings (I had to turn on a space heater the other day), but it will be hot outside.

Cassie wasn't feeling too well yesterday. She gets hair caught in her throat and ends up gagging and throwing up all day. She's doing a lot better today.

I've seen that in a couple, too. When Blue was young he would grab people by the hand when he wanted to play with them. (that's when he got out on me, otherwise he didn't get the chance)

They had a Rottie at the stable I used to board at who "talked" to people. He loved being petted and rubbed on, and the more he liked it the louder his growl got. I was giving him a good rubbing one time and the lady who was working there thought he was going to kill me. He was rolled over on his side, almost onto his back.

We had a fight going on at our NextDoor areas last week. A dog was found that was extremely friendly and playful, but after 24 hours they couldn't find the owner so, thinking the owner could find him easier at Dumb Friends, they took him there. Dumb Friends immediately turned him over to the city animal shelter and they deemed him aggressive and put him on the euth list. He had people who had met him wanting to adopt him, but DAS said no. The people who wanted him, a rescue person, and the person who found him all fought to get him released to a rescue and finally succeeded. The rescue transferred him to a no-kill shelter (meanwhile he was giving kisses to the van driver and laying with his head on the guy's lap) until he could get in a foster home. They have changed that to he is up for adoption. Will only adopt to someone with another dog he can play with since he likes to play so much. So glad that he is safe and will still have a new loving home and playmate.

Just read that Carl was adopted this morning. So happy that everything turned out for him. I wish when people worked at a shelter they knew what they were doing. They obviously don't at DAS (they also don't know breeds).

Yahoo sent all my SP messages to junk. I just realized I hadn't heard from you guys in awhile.


I'm dog sitting a 4 month old lab puppy, whose owner didn't do her research. She brought the puppy over, Saw my 5 year old lab. "Is my lab going to get THAT big and still play in the water like yours? YES the lab is a big water dog. Long story short, The puppy that has been playing in his water bowl in a postage stamp size yard is running with my lab in a 3/4 acre fenced back yard with a livestock tub of water to play in. His behaver has really improved. I bring him in and he runs to his crate and goes to sleep. Why don't people realize the animal is going to be a dog a lot longer then a puppy, so they really should learn what kind of dog it will be. Who knows what will happen when she picks up her puppy tomorrow.

She did not last more than two hours after my last post. The neighbor came over and dug her grave. I wrapped her in her favorite blanket and laid her to rest.
RIP Shellie. You were a good old dog. We knew you were old when we took you in, and it was sad to see you stumble and fall when your hips gave out. I wish that we could have done more for you. I am glad that you enjoyed a quiet household for the last four years of your life, devoid of arguments, tantrums, screaming and fights. I know I will see you at the end of the Rainbow Bridge, and when that day comes, you will meet me with waggin tail.

My old dog Shellie is in bad shape. She hasn't eaten all week. Her stomach is bloated and she is vomiting foam and mucus, and now blood. And her hips have gotten worse. We cannot afford a trip into El Paso to see a vet until payday, Monday. I don't know if she will last that long.

Shellie came inside where it is cooler and watched us move boxes snd reorganize our work benches.
She didn't budge when Brie started using her jigsaw. But when I started pounding holes in leather, she requested OUT!
I was working on some thick, imitation alligator hide and managed to poke my finger and shred the imitation sinew I was working with. Got my finger bandaged but couldn't find my wax to fix the thread. So I am calling it a night.
Good night. See you tomorrow.

I am pleased that you like the half moon. I like it too. There will be lots of beadwork, naturally. I will add wooden beads and brass shells to the fringe. I need to return to Brie's regalia, and bead three hawk feathers for her on the back of it. I need to sew some plain muslin trousers like scrubs and wear a loincloth, or a fake flap loincloth. Brie's regalia is longer. I will sew a cotton shirt for underneath, unless she wants trousers. Our chief knows we are Two Spirit and supports our cross dressing mix and match styles!

Yeah, I am back up to 200 pounds. My waist is trimmer, so that means that the weight shifted down to my hips. The cut of the shirt emphasizes that. We did not work on the storage room/den today. So we still cannot access our exercize bikes.
