Who Let the Dogs Out?

My sister says I am not a "dog" person. I confess that I was not a doting parent to the two dogs we have owned. So... out of a need to do doggie penance???...I find myself collecting dog images. The two hooked pieces were created by myself this year and I enjoy these puppies mugs every time I look at them. We get along just great.
The grand dame puppy portrait guards our entry hall. This print has an odd little spot on the muzzle that looks like a bullet hole. I tell new visitors that it was my husband's grandfather's dog and that it was accidentally shot and that the story goes that they were so distraught that they had him stuffed and had his portrait made so that future generations would never forget this wonderful guy. Folks try to listen to this nonsense respectfully. It doesn't take them long to realize I am full of it. I probably really should not be a true doggie parent. I love them best from a distance.


  1. I love your dogs. You have even more than me. Your ever loving sister

  2. I love the dog rug. So much color. I love it when bloggers show their private stash. ~PJ
