I had a vision last week when I bought these masks for Sherman and Leroy.
I had seen a picture of a dog on Facebook wearing a mask kind of similar to the ones I have pictured above. It was an awesome picture and I wanted to recreate it with the Newfs. I mean how difficult can putting a mask on a dog be, right?
Well putting a mask on a dog is the easy part.
Getting them to cooperate and look at you is the difficult part.
My thought on the gold mask was that with the right lighting from the sun and Leroy’s beautiful light brown eyes the gold of the mask would set off the gold sparkle in his eyes.
However, one would have to have his eyes open for that sparkle to shine through.
I suppose Leroy thought this mask was intended to assist in his afternoon nap.
And Sherman didn’t fair much better with his mask either.
He looked more like an alien that had lost his way.
The red was picked for Sherman because red is his color and his eyes are a bit darker than Leroy’s so the red with the gold trim would of accented his eyes.
However, one would have to direct his eyes upwards instead of downwards for that to happen.
Now I could of photo edited some eyes into these pictures, but there isn’t a “Newfoundland eye” button for that, and if you have ever looked into the eyes of a Newfoundland you will know that their soulful eyes can’t be edited.
Which is why I most likely will not subject them to masks again.
Another lesson learned.
