Liz Pearson of Cape Town, South Africa, has made this remarkable oil painting of Keira, a 4-year-old pit bull cross. Look at the stance and the muscle and the pride in this dog! And yet, Liz has showed Keira's sweet expression and intelligence, too. Liz really has the touch. Check out her blog to see more.

As for Keira's pursuits, "apparently," Liz writes, "her best activity is to watch TV on the couch over some biscuits! She's love-starved and a real softie."
Pit bulls have a reputation, that's true. But Liz believes - and I do, too - that there are no bad dogs, only bad owners. Keira is a sweetie, and with the right family, would be a wonderful pet.
