I love the bow, along with the barely full quiver of arrows! Shows you just how much this dog loves hunting!

Another wonderful thing I love about your art: each animal fits into the surrounding culture. I can definitely see an African wild dog being a native hunter in this style.

Incredible. You bring anthro art to a new height. Your skill is among the best representation of the potential of anthro art.

btw, I bought that issue of Furrlough for the cover. :)

I love how you kept the "brindling and blotching" you see in Cape hunting dogs. Very well done!f Love the legs. (I've known African wild dogs as Cape Hunting Dogs from the animal encyclopedia, even if nobody has heard it before :O )

DO THIS ITS SOO FREAKY





here just do it


most people aren't sure of what they really want in life. I received
this letter from a friend on the computer, did what it told me to, and
within a week, everything I had wished came true!! Here's an exact copy,

this

really

works!!!!





************************************
***********************
**





1. To yourself, say the name of the only guy or girl you wanna be with
3 times!





************************************
***********************
**





2. Think of something you wanna accomplish within the next week and say
it to your self 6 times!!





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~





3. If you had 1 wish what would it be? say it to yourself 9 times!!!





------------------------------------
-----------------------------------





4. Think of something that you want to happen between you and that
1special person and say it to your self 12 times!!!





------------------------------------
--------------------------------





5. Now, heres the hard part! Pick only 1 of these wishes and as you
scroll down focus and concentrate on it and think on nothing else but that
wish.

Now make one last & final wish about that one wish that you picked.





After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people, and
what you wished for will come true within in one week!





u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your
crush!!!





Keep going

down





Keep going





Keep

going





!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was your last chance. Now
pay very close attention this important message!



Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda
chain letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since 1864 and
if you break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that after hearing
these stories.





First Example:



Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl, up till she got this
same chain letter. She had a crush on the same kid since kindergarden.
when she got this mail she didn't pay any attention to it. She just
thought, no big deal. And deleted it. The next day her dad got fired and
her mom dies in a car crash. If she would have sent the letter none of
that would have happened and her mom would be alive.





Second Example:



Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average nerd. Had glasses, was
short and chubby, was in gifted. All the signs of
your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51
people in the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since
3rd grade. The next day after sending the chain the girl confessed her
love for him ever since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the courage to
ask her out, and of course, she had been waiting to yes to that for
years. They grew up and
married each other to live happily forever.





Third Example:



Now if you couldn't relate to the others, this'll get ya hooked. Listen
to this. A kid named Jordan Johnson was just getting on AOL to check
his mail. He was a quiet kid, not that popular but not a geek either. he
was just normal. He saw he had mail from his friend. It was this exact
letter. Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart kid and he knew what could
happen if he didnt pass it on. He simply pulled a few friends from his buddy
list and sent it along. The next day, about that same time, he got a
phone call. It said he had won the lottery!
then his dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him
Nintendo64 and play station! His grandmother sent him a new computer, and
his best friend
gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and Limp
Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was goin'
wild! the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been
going out ever since.





Now, you heard the stories. I know which person i'd rather
be, but thats up to you. I wouldn't wanna end up like Barbra but thats
only me. We all want what we cant have but now's ur chance to go out
withthat special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave it. If you
send this to-



1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love life..... forever!!!!!



10 people- your crush will say they like you as a friend......
ONLY!!!!!



15 people- your crush will say they like you



20 people- your crush will ask you out!



25 people- your crush will kiss you!!



30 people - Your crush will have sex with you



35 people or more- All of the above!!



Don't blow it, it's ur chance to shine! Have everything u wanted, and
more! Now, complaining cus u dont have any
friends. Well theres an answer 4 everything. It's simple, just go in a
chat room, pick some names and send away! but here's the catch..... you
only have 1 hour
