Where Oh Where

Where, oh where

has my little dog gone?

Oh where, oh where

can he be?

He’s back at home

hiding under the bed.

You silly,

silly puppy!


In the few seconds that I was distracted, a certain furry someone sneaked under the bed and fell asleep. As I cluelessly walked past, I found a grouchy terrier affixed to my slipper.

Since Toby has been sleeping in his kennel, we have barely had any run ins like this one, and things are much better between us. I doubt Toby realizes why, but he is a happier, less stressed out pup.

(And yes, I do need my name on the slippers so I can tell mine from Toby’s.)

Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.


Looking for a beautiful yet practical gift to give this holiday season? Consider giving a handmade quilt or afghan. Not only would you be giving a loving gift to someone you care about, but you would be supporting a cottage, American-based industry as well.

These and other fine gifts can be found in my shop at L Bowman Studios.


  1. Years ago we took in an old labrador who had been dumped when his people moved. Apart from his loathing of bicycles and their riders he was a sweetie, except that he liked to sleep under the kitchen table and, upon waking, would grab the first ankle he saw…

  2. I am shocked! Shocked! Not that Toby would attack – he is quite the little assassin these days. No, I am shocked that your slippers are not marked “right” and “left” for those cold Pennsylvania nights when you’ve been hitting the cooking sherry like Toby says. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ (Or “TGIF” like Carolyn uses on hers.)

  3. Great rhyme! Great photo/drawing combo! ๐Ÿ™‚ HA! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Maybe Toby is like Coop and thinks ALL of the slippers (and socks) belong to him. ??? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›
    So glad the kennel sleeping is going well. ๐Ÿ™‚
    (((HUGS))) to you!
    PATS and RUBS and ๐Ÿฅฟ๐Ÿฅฟ and ๐Ÿงฆ for Toby! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›
