"Jewels" ... Long Coat Chihuahua
Collection Sallie P. Buckman, Memphis TN
--from original acrylic on stretched canvas, 16” x 20”
Although Jewels was born into a show home, this beauty had no interest in walking around a show ring. She had more important things to do! At the top of her list was taking care of her Mom, Sallie, and her secondary job was keeping all her canine family members, Chihuahuas and Japanese Chin, in their proper places. Wherever Sallie went, Jewels was by her side. It has been said that Jewels was in the process of mastering English.
A constant companion and a true “heart” dog, Jewels went to the Rainbow Bridge much to early.
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: Born and reared in the South, Martha Hooks 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, of course, her favorite subjects are dogs, cats and horses. In addition to portrait work, she paints pets on purses.
