Meet Degrassi. This perky chihuahua mix, like most small dogs, is not the outdoorsy type. She prefers to hop up onto the back of the couch and watch the world go by through her picture window. She loves having visitors and inviting them to play. Her inquisitive personality and friendly demeanor have won the hearts of many in the English graduate student crowd, and she has been known to make appearances on campus to liven up meetings.

There is so much expression in this little dog. I really enjoyed painting her ears (forward and alert) and focused, brown eyes. Her brindle fur was a good challenge to portray, and I used a handful of colors to bring out all the browns, tans, grays, and silvers I saw.
