12 Days: “Eyes are the window to the soul.”
I’ve been wanting to do this post for a while now. I love eyes – people eyes, dog eyes, horse eyes, cat eyes, whatever. When I used to be more actively involved with horses, I always heard, “Look for a horse with a kind eye.” And being involved with animal rescue work, I’ve always been told, “Look into an animal’s eyes – you’ll see his soul.” I think that eyes can tell a lot about someone, human or animal.
While the dogs weren’t entirely thrilled with having a camera shoved in their faces to get “glamour eye shots” today, I am pretty happy with the way that these pictures turned out. Evee the puffball, who always has hair in her eyes, has very dark brown eyes. Even in her older age, they are always expressive and bright. Bailey has golden amber eyes. I call him the Edward Cullen of the family due to his intriguing, captivating eyes (and yes, I am admittedly a Twilight fan, as sad as you may find that). Diesel has medium dark brown eyes with light blue accents – his right eye is considered a partial blue and his left eye has a little bit of blue marbling with blue freckles. Kylie has geometric split eyes, sometimes called merle eyes. Her right eye is 3/4 ice blue and 1/4 amber and her left eye is 1/4 ice blue and 3/4 amber. What’s neat is that her eyes are almost identical to one another, just with the blue and amber flip-flopped!
With that being said, what do you think? Whose eyes are your favorite?
