New Avatar?

Missey died a few months ago, and you were kind enough to help me with a memorial avatar for her. It's coming up on three months now, and it's time to get a new avatar ready.

I've decided to use the BeaChis for my new avatar, as they are part Beagle -- and I've always been the "Keeper of the Beagles". They are brothers, Tigger on the left and Mister P on the right, and were a royal PITA until they finally grew out of chewing up things! They're now 3 years old, and fairly well behaved, all things considered. I got them when Tigger and P were summarily tossed out into the street (literally!) after the owner passed away; I went almost to Chicago to bring them back here -- part of my job as a Rescue Driver back then. Tigger ended up having major surgery for a broken right-hind leg, and has since recovered very nicely. These two are very bonded; sleep together, eat together, and bother me a LOT together. They're still a PITA, but a loveable PITA; I guess they're here to stay, since it's been over two years since I rescued them. *sigh*

Herewith, the boys.




I don't know if it's possible to make their eyes blink??? Any help, ideas, suggestions that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for all of your help over the years, and for your consideration with starting this new phase of avatar-land.

Their faces are kind of small, but both sets of eyes are blinking.

KittyMom, I LOVE Tigger's wagging tale -- so CUTE!!!

One request -- can you make the background more blue, like in the original picture? I'm not much on neon green, even though I spent the day cutting the grass -- which is probably why I'm not a fan of green!

Sashie, I definitely prefer to call this a "Beagle attempt", per CCat's recommendation.

I love this -- perfect size, with both of my little PITAs in there -- LOL!!!

What do you expect from two little doggies??? Tigger weighs about 13 pounds, and Mister P is a couple pounds heavier. When I first rescued the boys, Mister P weighed in at 22 pounds!!! The vet had a spasm, and Mister P went on a diet/walking program immediately. Took about six months for him to get down to a normal size.

The blinking eyes are AWESOME!!!

THANK YOU so much for doing this!!!

I LOVE what all of you have done with the picture of Tigger and Mister P!!!

THANK YOU so much for all of them; I've decided that I'm going to rotate them, so that they all get viewed.

MANY THANKS for all your wonderful help!!!

Just For Fun!!
I'm glad you're pleased with them.

I went for the best of both images and made the background blue and added the rotating hearts. They do look like paws on the avatar sized image. I'm including a larger version too.
