As for your niece, I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out. But the doggie - just last night I was reading something Martin Buber said about what's in the eyes of animals - His stuff is so deep that you're never sure if you're quite getting it or not - He said, "An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language."
beautiful eyes! Dogs and children speak volumes with their eyes, don't they?
Wow! Amazing pictures!
