About the Item

Available sizes: 37.5" x 30", Edition of 15 50" x 40", Edition of 10 60" x 48", Edition of 5 THE EYES OF A WOLF are not like the yes of a dog. But, they used to be. Rooted deep in the very heart of this collection was an enduring desire to explore and learn from the emotional connections we share with out closest companions: Dogs. As I sat face to face with over 120 different dogs, I couldn’t help but contemplate their origins. I couldn’t help but recognize the beautiful similarities they hare with one another, namely, their unwavering desire to be close to the humans that love them. We know that dogs descended from wolves. The details around this decendency, however, vary widely. Scientists aren’t entirely sure when in time the split began. And there are still a sea of questions regarding where. But, what I find most interesting throughout all of the evolutionary studies around dogs is the overwhelming evidence for a process called self-domestication. There have been cases recorded among other types of animals (foxes, for example), where scientists believe that the friendliness of an animal, for various reasons, led to the significant advantage of their survival. Brian Hare, head of Duke University Canine Cognition Center, suggests that the physical changes in dogs over time, like splotchy coats, curly tails, and floppy ears, might all be a result of self-domestication. “Friendliness somehow drives these physical changes.” It is believes that perhaps humans are, in face, not responsible for the domestication of wolves at all, but that, instead, wolves domesticated themselves. To be near to us. It is said that if friends are the family you choose, then dogs are the family that choose you. And choose us, it seems they did. How beautiful that the very thing we marvel at most in our pets— loyalty, love, steadfastness—are the very thing that evolved to allow us to have them in the first place. That it may all come down to a moment when the wild wolf decided to become…the Good Dog. Toy Poodle: Secret Poodles are most often known for their polished puffs, clean lines and rounded edges, however this girl wasn’t one to follow the crowd. She had an air of toughness about her and preferred fast drives to long walks. In fact, my first intro to her was through a car window as she pulled up wind-blown and riding shotgun.
