Leni, Beautiful Changes by rieke-b Leni, Beautiful Changes by rieke-b
(Acrylic paints on canvas, 10x10cm) My first good portrait of Leni (Westie-Schnauzer mix, born in 2004). I find it hard to find the right words for how much she means to me…

Leni is a demanding dog and because we had to train her well, I learned to really respect animals and nature. Thanks to Leni, I am now a more self-assured and positive person (and lost weight, too).
Leni is very clever, attentive, sporty and very attached to us. She’s an ideal partner for going on a trip and you can always motivate her for going outside, training and playing. I’m very glad that she respects me and my family and she taught us that small dogs have to be respected just like big dogs. :heart:

(Acryl auf Leinwand, 10x10cm) Mein erstes gelungenes Portrait von Leni (Westie-Schauzer-Mix, geb. 2004). Es fällt mir schwer, die richtigen Worte dafür zu finden, wie viel sie mir bedeutet…

Weil Leni ein anspruchsvoller Hund ist und wir sie gut erziehen mussten, habe ich gelernt, Tiere und Natur wirklich zu respektieren. Dank Leni bin ich ein selbstbewussterer, positiverer Mensch geworden (und habe auch abgenommen).
Leni ist sehr klug, aufmerksam, sportlich und anhänglich. Sie ist eine ideale Begleiterin für unterwegs und lässt sich immer zu Unternehmungen, Übungen oder Spielen motivieren. Ich bin sehr froh, dass sie mich und meine Familie respektiert und sie hat uns beigebracht, dass kleine Hunde genauso respektiert werden müssen wie große. :heart:

Awww Leni! :love: She she has such beautiful eyes (and here I thought Leni was a boy, oops!) She reminds me of the mini schnauzer we used to have. Wonderful job with the fur lines and colors! Looks like she's ready for her walk.

Hehe! :hug: She looks even better with groomed fur, though, when you can see both her eyes. :D
Aww, you had a mini Schnauzer?! They're great! Leni is half Schnauzer, too. :) Yes, she's ready for a walk anytime.

Love the story. "Sometimes we dont always get the dog we want, but the dog we need. " ~Cesar Millan.
Dogs teach us so much.

That's so true! Cesar Millan is my hero, by the way! We learned so much from his books and DVDs. Without him, we wouldn't be able to live with Leni peacefully.
Thank you for the quotation! :heart:

Hes probably my biggest role model.
I have some of his books borrowed right now from the library as we speak. :)
My pleasure! Give Leni my regards!

Yes, he's one of those Real Heroes. :D I bought all his books. They're so great! Have you seen his show, yet?
Thanks, hehe! Leni went on a bike tour today, so she's calm and happy. :heart:
