Dog sofa

I was looking for something unrelated on craigslist this afternoon and came across this in the free section. I’m still laughing because I know how hard it is to get MY dogs off of their couch when I’m trying to change the slipcover, much less sell it out from under them. Totally made my day.

National Black Dog Day

We celebrated National Black Dog Day. Did you?

Boxer pair – Hoot and Pete

It’s been a fast four weeks working on this life-sized pair, but they are now ready to go to their forever home with Rocky.

Hoot was a brindled Boxer mix and Pete was a snow white Boxer. The impression I got from the photographs provided is that Hoot was a kind of goofy, vocal and huggy kind of dog and Pete appears to have had the patience of a saint, long-suffering and mellow. All dogs have their bursts of bounciness, but Pete appears to have been a champion napper. Both of the boys clearly loved their little buddy, Rocky, from the snuggle photos I saw. I hope that their personalities come through and that they help keep alive for their owner the memories of his beloved pets.

Best buds

My Big Black Dog and my Little Black Dog have spent the entire past week here together, but now Baby Rico has gone back home. Nemo will probably sleep for two days, and then begin all over again his morning routine of staring out over the garage gate down the street hoping to catch sight of his little buddy. #puppylove

Boxers – in progress

A pair of life-sized Boxers is in the works – blast this infuriating humidity, though! Here the boys are coming along as their ears dry in the breeze of my fan. 😀
