Sometimes you just need a new perspective and everything falls into place.
Our little Chihuahua friend is trying to make sense of it all, and tilting his head ever so slightly seems to make everything better. "Kapakahi" is a Hawaiian word meaning crooked, askew or out of sync. In this painting, I'm referring to his ears, one up and one sideways...
I love when I talk to my dog (which is all the time) and he does the head-tilt. I will often just say things is an inquiring tone so that he will look at me with his big dewy eyes, cock his head to the side and really weigh my question’s merit to the fullest. The most important factor to him is probably whether or not finding the answer is rewarded with a treat. Gotta love that he’s got priorities and ambition!
