A “Brush” With Danger

That's it!  No more pets for me.  What?  I just didn't want to have my fur brushed.
Thanks for ruining things for us Toby.  We would have liked to have a mom like yours.

(I picture the puppy guf much like heaven.)

I can’t seem to go two weeks without a dog bite. This time Toby was fully awake. I was brushing his fur, and he threw a bloody tantrum when I hit a small tangle. I was trying to make things easier for his groomer when he goes for his first appointment, but now she is on her own. I’ve also started shopping for muzzles for Toby – only I am calling them “masks” and pretending they will keep him safe rather than me.

Look, I painted some puppies!

Oh no, wait. I only painted the one on the left. The one on the right is by Sir Edwin Landseer. I had the opportunity to see that picture at the museum a few years ago. Among all of those famous paintings, it was surprising to see something that reminded me of my own. (See? The secret of doing good art stuff is finding something you like and claiming you did it!)
