“All my life I have loved dogs and wished that I could give each and every one of them the perfect home. That being impossible, I do the next closest thing: I get to know as many of them as possible, through creating their miniatures. Most owners tell me stories about the dog I’m doing or why they need them done, and I as I work, they become, for a short time, my own. I love each and every one of them.”
Stop it, that is too cute!!! 🙂
Oh Emma!! These are the GREATEST ever! I have NEVER had so many darling shots taken with a mini! Miles is so handsome — I was very, very excited to get the chance to create such a beautiful dog 🙂 He is a perfect gentleman, doing an excellent job posing for you. This is such a wonderful, FUN and laugh out loud post! I can't thank you enugh 🙂 I loved it!
I am at a loss for words as I am overwhelmed by cuteness! Superb? Adorable? Stunning? Perfection? All of them and more! I LOVE it! Alice is amazing and what fantastic poses – what a treat – made my day!
I second (third?) what everybody else said! Those made me chortle with glee!
OMG I love it! Definitely need to get one for Wally, they are adorable! And obviously open the door to awesome photo session ideas 🙂
Such a wonderful gallery of portraits and Alice, I just absolutely love the quote most of all! Miles is such a great model and I love the tilted head while looking at his mini 🙂
I am glad everyone enjoys the pairing. I can't get over how identical they are. My head is just exploding from the cuteness.
Side note — I was very careful, but Miles still managed to whisk his mini off for a quick romp around the yard during the shoot. I nearly fainted. It happened in the middle of the photoshoot, so as you can see, mini was unharmed. Close freakin' call, AKA, life with a terrier. I think Mini Miles will call a wall-mounted little display box his home now.
Alice — your artwork is incredible. So close to life, in shape, texture, expression and personality. What precious keepsakes. I can't believe what you can do. And that your miniatures are posable? Wow! I had a lot of fun thinking of how to pose the two of them. And most of all right now, I am thrilled that you love the photos.
Hahahaha, good to know that Miles isn't so perfectly wonderful as to be immune to naughty Terrier behavior. Gotta love Terriers, so much character! 😉
Oh Emma and Alice and Miles and mini Miles……what a wonderful blog……love this…I am smiling big and can't get enough of these pictures….
Emma – you come up with the most creative ways of showing off your sweet Miles….I love him…his pic with me is one of my all time favorites….
So glad you have met Alice and her wonderful felting craft abilities…she does marvelous work as you can see and appreciate.
Love love love the expressions and how you positioned little mini Miles – what did big Miles say to you about all this??? I would have loved to have been there…..
Sending love and hugs to both you and Miles…miss you but will connect again.
Alice – yes isn't Miles the perfect gentleman…it was the joy of my life to meet such a lovely dog…..he had manners beyond belief !! So glad you are happy with Emma's work.
No Cassie, Miles thinks he created wild terrier behaviour…!
Thank you for the kind words Pauline, you are a wonderful person with great friends. All of you are so talented.
I have got to see Miles' mini twin in person! They are both sooo cute!
Holy crap on toast these are fantastic Em!
