Discovering My Inner Fox

Hi my friends! It’s Dakota!!! 

A few weeks ago, our dear friend from Crunchkins, Inc. posted this photo on my Mom’s Facebook page:

sheltie or fox

When I saw this, I flashed Mom one of my winning Sheltie smiles!! Why? Because Mom says that often when she looks at me she thinks I resemble a Fox, and I have heard other Sheltie parents say that their Sheltie resembles a Fox as well.

Then, the other day, Mom was excited to find out that she had won a prize over at one of our favorite blogs:



Mom just LOVES the drawings that are on THE FOUR-LEGGED FURBALLS blog, and she was excited to learn that she had won a  drawing of ME and my kitty brother, Cody………she couldn’t have been more thrilled!!!! Take a look at MY drawing!!!

Dakota drawing four legged furballs

Mom LOVES this drawing but she and I had a good laugh!!!! What do you think was the FIRST thing we both thought of when we saw this? You got it!!! Mom thought that I look exactly like a FOX in this drawing!!!  It is a darling drawing and we LOVE IT!


So, what do YOU think? Do you see a Sheltie or a Fox when you look at a Sheltie?

 Do you see a Sheltie or a Fox in the drawing?


Barks and licks and love, Dakota


  1. Momma says I look like a lil arctic fox a lot – I has a pointier face dan a lotta westies do.

  2. OMD!! You sure *do* look super foxy there, Dakota!

    What a great drawing, by yhe way:)

  3. when humans say a girl looks like a fox. That means she is pretty sexy.. It is a compliment. I think you are foxy Dakota

  4. Dakota’s colors are more unique than the poor, plainer fox. But the smile – there is decidedly similarity 🙂

  5. Your mom is so talented and we love your ‘foxy’ look, Dakota!

    I got to go now, I need a mirror to see whether I’ve that foxy look too! 🙂

    Love and barks,

  8. the foxy picture of you looks darned cute… I love it… and maybe there is something of a fox in every sheltie? that could be the reason that foxes and sheltie’s are clever and smart :o)

  10. I love the drawing too and you do favor a fox a little. It’s a good thing.

  12. You do look very much like a fox Dakota.
    That reminds me of when Bridge was alive, she used to love to roll in fox pee in the park. She absolutely stank! It didn’t help that she looked like a fox too – good thing we didn’t come across any foxhounds on our walk.

  13. What a great drawing!
    You DO look a bit fox-like! But in a nice way!

  15. What a great drawing. You were a very lucky winner for sure. Dakota you are so handsome. Fox are cute and nice, but you look much more handsome than a fox and your smile is award winning.
