"Three Times a Champion" ... Am., Mex, Int’l Ch. Hooks’ Dixie Pixie of Handwerk ... Long Coat Chihuahua

--from the Original Acrylic on Canvas Panel, 11"x14" 

After earning her American Championship, this tiny little beauty went traveling and earned her Mexican and International Championships.  Pixie always dressed to win in her lovely red-sable fur with creamy white trim.  Pixie's two litter sisters, Maizy and Daizy, also finished their Championships.    

The Chihuahua is a smart, saucy, alert little dog with a terrier-type personality and is the smallest of the toy breeds.  Although the Chihuahua must be six pounds or less to go into the show ring, they are fearless around dogs of any size much to the dismay of their owners.  Thanks to their excellent hearing, they make wonderful watch dogs.  This centuries-old breed is a member of AKC's Toy Group. 

The Artist:  Martha Hooks, a Southerner by birth and choice, has always had dogs in her life.  Her memories of going to field trials with her dad as well as time spent in conformation rings with her Long Coat Chihuahuas helped expand her knowledge of canine anatomy, breed traits and personalities.  She paints full time and commissions are accepted, time permitting.  Of course, her favorite subjects wear fur coats year around.
