The Yark and the Witching Hour

Electric mustard colored fungus growing in wood mulch

Luminescent pile of yark

gently glowing in the dark.

Yellow like a ‘nanner peel

Little doggie do you feel

better now the puke is gone

sitting outside on the lawn?

(Wouldn’t Mozart be proud?)

The other night, Toby managed to jump up to the counter and steal and eat a banana peel before I could stop him. At 3:00 am he kindly gave the peel back. The poem has a happier ending than real life because it happened outside unlike reality which required an early morning kennel scrubbing. Thanks Toby.

Anytime, mom!


Dream Our World

If you would like to know more of what Toby and his brother have been up to, pick up a copy of Dream Our World. Inside Bitey (Geordie) and Toby visit the museum of their dreams and enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.

Dream Our World is available from my shop at L Bowman Studios.



  1. Aw, poor Toby! 😦
    Toby, I hope your tummy feels better now. ❤️ Were you just monkey-ing around? 😉
    (((HUGS))), PATS, and gentle-RUBS!!!
    PS…I would share some puke puns…but frankly I can’t stomach that kind of humor! Although, I must admit, the word up-chuck has always made me laugh. 😮 😛
