Portrait Marathon: Iker, #18

Iker!  This loooong face belongs to a galgo, a Spanish greyhound, rescued from unhappy circumstances and brought to Canada to live the life of love and luxury provided by his new mom and shared with his canine housemate, Treasure.  

His frightening history has left him feeling like the world is a very dangerous and untrustworthy place, but he's made huge strides since coming to N. America.  I imagined him coming into the light here.  Even if it sort of knocks him a bit sideways!  ;)  

Last but not least in the Marathon is Darlene's Mosa, who's smiling face is a real opposite to Iker's!
