Less Wordy Wednesday – Best. Birthday Gift. Ever.

I’ve often joked that it’s a good thing Shiva is a mixed breed all her own. One Shiva is probably all the world can take. We don’t know if she had any siblings but I am inclined to think not. I am sure the screams would have ricocheted across the city by now.

However, I stand corrected. After opening my birthday present this year, I’ve determined two Shivas is actually a good thing.

Framed Shiva

Shiva herself agrees. Now she has someone to blame when we find garbage strewn all over the floor.


As lovely as the new Shiva is, though, I think I still prefer the original. There is one=hundred-percent more cat chasing with a classic Sheevs, but there are also at least as many cuddles.

    Wow, what a lovely portrait. Was this the PH’s birthday gift? Or Shiva’s?

    One of the most meaningful things I’ve ever done is framed photos of each of my dogs. You’ll enjoy serene Shiva you’re entire life.

    The picture is gorgeous, it really captures Shiva’s happy face. Shiva herself seems a little suspicious of Shiva 2. :)

    That drawing is incredible! Looks just like her. It even manages to capture a little bit of mischief in her eyes! But we agree with you, the original Shiva (as crazy as she may be) is much more cuddlier than the framed form! :) Happy Wednesday!

    Wow – what a fabulous birthday gift!!! That picture is gorgeous!

    (But given the silly looks Shiva 1.0 is making in all the accompanying photos, I still think she’s the most rockin’ hound in the house. She is just too cute.)

    What a fab sketch of Shiva. Really got her likeness well.

    I still prefer the real one:)

    What a wonderful portrait of Shiva!

    I’ve probably seen one too many horror movies – but seriously, if that Shiva portrait jumps out of the frame…RUN!!! ;)
