Ohhhh, you can’t say “no”….

Hey Gallagher, are you sure this is how it's done? Of course. They're p'smashios for a reason.

Did you know that pistachios, cashews and mangoes are in the same plant family as poison ivy? Guess why I know this.

Forget pistachios, I’ll just eat shoeberries.

Jurassic Cuke

Hey guys, look at this cuke. It's positively Jurassic!
After you eat that, it will be like that movie where the T Rex eats the guy with the Sat phone. Then later eeryone hears it ringing, and they have to dig through that huge mountain of....
Enough! Sheesh, why couldn't I have girls? It wouldn't matter. All dogs like poop stories!

Want me to tell you a poopcentric bedtime tale?

I’ve got a million of ’em!

Huge yellow cucumber
Very large garden cucumber

I drew this story after last year’s crop. That year we got exceptionally large cukes.

This year’s crop leaves a bit to be desired.

OK, so there aren’t any poop stories in Dream Our World, but there are plenty of other things to laugh at! Visit the Museum of the Imagination with Bitey and Toby and view the world of art from a canine perspective.

The Swimming Hole

In real life puppies aren’t allowed to come here, so we’ve found a way around the rules!

As long as it’s not a bath, I’m game.

Shoveling Snow

Wheee!!

This is why I have lower back problems…because my boys are such good “helpers”.

Bear Paw Quilt

This rustic Bear Paw Quilt will keep you warm on cold winter nights. Bear Paw Quilt would fit nicely at the cabin by the lake or thrown over the couch. The pattern is geometric, and the colors are bold yet earthy. The overall effect is of paw prints in snow. On sunny days, the colors look so inviting it is hard not to lie down on them and take a nap.

Bear Paw Quilt is available from my shop.

The New Restaurant

It is a dark time. Across the state, businesses have been shut down for want of customers. So many restaurants have closed that underground, speakeasy-style eateries have popped up away from the watchful eyes of health department.

The boys’ beloved Sniff City has become….(Dun…dun…duhhhhn)… Hellmont.

My idea is better. No MINE is! Mom!!
Which of us has the best name for our new restaurant?
My idea's the best. It's the Diarrhea Trattoria!
Wait, does this place serve or cause diarrhea? Your choice! Oh dear, are those raisins and Tootsie Rolls on the bar? Well, at one time...
Forget about him. It's my idea that's the best.
It's the Copra...CopraphaGIa! The hottest spot for diarrhea! At the Copra,CopraphaGIa..Poopin' and noshin' are always in fahshion...Fashion? Yes, dahling...
Do you really think anyone will want to eat here? How is your dessert menu? Do you serve Poopsicles or Fudge Dragons? I'd like a meal to help me clear a room. I need assistance with my abstract expressionism.

Not that dogs eat poo or anything…

Well, only if it’s there.

Friends and Family Helping Out

At our age, we have to be careful about not breaking a hip.

You are healing pretty fast for someone as old as you are.

Is she going to start crying like Lucy again?  It's best to be prepared just in case.

The New Sweater (or How Rocky Road Can Keep You Warm)

Hand Knit Man's Rocky Road Cardigan

This is the project I have been working on lately, to the great dismay of my pups.  They don’t like when anything takes my attention away from them…especially little Toby.  There was much howling and crying for love as I constructed this dark brown beauty that somehow makes me hungry for ice cream whenever I am around it.

Little do they realize that these projects are what keeps them in biscuits and peanut butter – two things that they are absolutely certain they would die without.   I must make more sales in the near future, though.  Soon the weather will be warm, and they will be expecting doggie ice cream.

You weren’t kidding about that ice cream, were you?

Bitey Dog’s new book, A Tired Mommy Is a Good Mommy is ready to order at Amazon books.  (Also available in Kindle version.)  Come check it out!

And Now We Wait….

Today we submitted our formatted book interior and our cover art.  They made it through the first review, and now we have to wait to be presented with a proof.  After that, we either approve the book or redo the work until it is right.  I am hoping that things are correct because after looking at this content over and over and for so long, I don’t really see it anymore.  I can say that the pups are much happier now that I am not at the computer so many hours each day.  This afternoon we got to play with one of their friends as well as chase tennis balls and flashlight beams.

And now we wait….

Peeing on each other.

How the boys celebrated our time outside today.
