"HUCKLEBERRY" 81/101 OF 101 PET PORTRAITS IN 101 DAYS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

SOLD to his pet mom Norma...Thank you Norma!
"Huckleberry" is a much loved pet kid to Norma Newton.  Norma reports that Huckleberry; also known as Huck, Huckster, Berry Huck and Lil Bit is a mix of about 10 breeds of which Border Collie is one.  This is Huckleberry and Norma's story: 
"He was a rescue..found years ago by our neighbor on the highway and she had cats. My husband, Todd & I had both, cats and dogs, but Huckleberry started coming over daily and he would crawl and cry as he stretched to get under our gate into our back yard. Then when I left for work, he would cry out as he crawled back out under the gate and follow me out of the neighborhood to the highway. I started stopping and picking him up and taking him to the office with me daily. At night, we'd step out on the front porch about 9:00 and my neighbors would step out on their porch and call him and he would go stay in their laundry room at night. Needless to say, he ended up my dog and when we moved they thoughtfully allow him to join us. We have rescued all of our pets over the years & worked in rescue on and off. While I have dogs that our my babies and don't leave my side, I have never met one quite like him. He truly, for unknown reasons, adopted me!"  Awesome Norma!

I enjoyed all the beautiful blues in Huckleberry that just highlights those beautiful brown eyes.  Norma made a special request that I take a bit of the grey out of the Huckster.  What woman among us doesn't love to do a little grey coverage from time to time...so why not the guys! HA!  Huckleberry comes ready to frame or he can sit on an easel.

Huckleberry is such a sweetie...I love those BROWN eyes!  I like him in his display choices...each one lends a different perspective.  The easel is one I found at Hobby Lobby.  The floater frames are ones I purchased through pictureframes.com.   If you decide to purchase through them, watch for sales popping up on the top left.

I think I agree with you on this one CrimsonLeaves...Huck DOES seem to work in all the frame suggestions! Thank you!
