It’s been a while since I posted some images of dogs so I feel it’s time to redress the balance on this cat-obsessed internet, especially as – in the US at least – yesterday was National Pet Day (I’m reliably informed).
The first (above) is a dog called Pikelet, and comes from a photograph in a My Modern Met story about two dogs who ‘adopt’ two ducklings. The story pushed my Cute-o-meter well into the red, I’m afraid, but I couldn’t resist drawing the ever-bemused Pikelet and his enormous paws. Look at them – they’re huge.
This dog’s body is a piece of Hubble from Meg Greene Malvasi’s excellent Little Dogs Laughed blog. Meg has three wonderful rescue dogs but my day is made when Hubble makes an appearance. This is from a photograph posted in January: I kept getting his neck too long and his body too wide, but I decided to keep this fragment for my next attempt.
Finally, above is a rough sketch of our late and much-missed Gerald, doing what he used to do so well: sleeping. There is a corner of our living room that is forever greyhound.
Did you feel it? That was the internet shifting ever so slightly in favour of dogs!
