Helping Mommy Walk

Now that Mom is hurt, i tis our responsibility to help her.  The best thing we can do is stand directly wherever she needs to place her foot when she is walking.

Oh my gosh, would you please go away?!?

I'm sorry!  I didn't mean that.  I want you with me always.  Since I can't lean over and hug you, take these biscuits instead.  You're right.  Helping is the best!

Yes, my boys took full advantage.

Now why would I ever want to trip you?  Hmm…

She’s Beauty and She’s Grace

Remembering last year’s FallWoman with injured legs struggles to walk.

Kind of reminds me of when the coyote got the boomerang glued to his butt.  As graceful as a sea cow on land!

In the year since the fall I have regained the ability to walk, but there is no grace to my gait.  I move like a broken wind-up toy.

Aw, I would never make fun of your walk.

 Yes I would!

My boys are still at large at the museum, unsupervised.  If you would like to see what they have been up to while everyone is gone, pick up a copy of Dream Our World.  Inside, the pups visit the Museum of the Imagination and view the world of art from a canine perspective.

Catch Up On My Reading

Still remembering The Fall

While I am injured, maybe I can catch up on my reading.

Mom, he keeps stealing my toys! This little twerp is hogging all the sunshine!

Come here so I can beat you up! Yeah, well I'm gonna go pee on your bed!

I'm hungry! When's dinner? I gotta go potty! Then again, maybe I won't.....

Go away. I'm sleeping.

How dare you portray me as anything but the angel I am!

(Quit showing stuff like that!)

If you would like a book for your puppy to interrupt, order a copy of Dream Our World!

Inside, Toby and Geordie visit the museum of their dreams while they enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.

Actually, I have thought of this often lately.  Several copies of Dream Our World were being sold at a local museum when the world came to an end.  Bitey and Toby really have been locked – unsupervised – in a museum for months.  It makes me wonder what kind of adventures they have been having without my knowledge.  Hmm, maybe someone should write a book…

Tubs

 

 

Still remembering the fall…I am so down. Without being able to walk, I can't sleep; my appetite is off; I can't even draw.

Why don't you take a nice relaxing bath? That will make you feel better.

My legs won't bend enough so I can't even do that! I need one of those old lady tubs with the door in the side.

Whaaaaa!!!! So, do you think she will start hawking Vitameatavegamin next or stuffing her blouse with chocolates? I am hoping for the chocolates, myself.

(It was the chocolates.)

Last Spring – The Fall

Little oak tree, you can't live here. Let me take you to the woods and transplant you,

Holy crap! My right boot lace got caught on my left boot hook. My feet are tied together!

The Fall 3

Splat!

I didn't know humans could fly. Is it legal to say those words in this state?

Ew, this is so disgusting! I am soaked clear through to my underwear.

Ow! I''m not going to be able to walk for weeks! You know what this means, don't you? No supervision!

I'll go get us something from the fridge. I'll go get the toilet brush!

It has been a year now since The Fall.  At the time I expected to be better in a few weeks, but it was months before I could even take the dogs for a hobble.  My left knee never did recover, and still can’t fully bend it.

Toby takes advantage of my not being able to properly kick his butt.  This morning – at that magical Dogging Hour of 3:00 a.m. – he decided to destroy a few things around the house.

Toby grabs and chews a package

Heh, Mom’s not looking.  I’m going to steal her package.

Nah, I'm not interested

Oops.  Caught.  I’ll pretend that I am not interested.

Toby glances up at the package he was chewing

I just can’t help myself…

Ooh, I can't help myself. I really want it!

I really AM interested!

Insanity Squirrel #1

Drawing of squirrel

I was going to do another Insanity Avoidance Kitty, but something in my head whispered, “Do a squirrel”, so I drew an Insanity Avoidance Squirrel.  How is it working?  Meh.

Photo of dog's chin.

Did somebody say “squirrel”???

I have to keep Toby away from both real squirrels and the picture.  He will happily chew both.

Handmade afghan with roses and bows.

Do you have a dear friend or family member for whom you need a gift? (Perhaps a belated, blame-it-on-the-Post-Office Mothers’ Day gift?)  If so, consider giving  your beloved this rose afghan!  It was cross stitched and “bowed” by hand.  Mine!

Your gift will help to support small business and keep Toby in the finery to which he has become accustomed.

Whoopie!

Finished dimensions of the afghan (including fringe): 58″ x 47″ / 147.5 cm x 119.5 cm.
Material: 100% cotton
To clean: Wash in cold or warm water, delicate cycle. Tumble dry low. No bleach.

The cost would be $65.00 + Shipping.  If you are interested, you can contact me here or at my website L Bowman Studios.

 

May the Fourth

(OK, so we’re a little late…)

Toby Wan stands with his light saber.

Here I am, Tobi Wan, the greatest Jedi knight ever! Really? Most boys play Luke Skybarker. Plus, if you're Luke, you get to be The Divine Rod when you grow up.

But by being the best Jedi ever, I might impress that hot Yorkie and get to ask her out. There is no Yorkie in Star Wars.

Sure there is. It's that tall pilot Chewie!Puppy insists that there is a Yorkie in Star Wars - the tall pilot named Chewie.

Chewie is Wookie, you ninny, not a Y orkie...and he's a guy! The Divine Rod, you say?

Back end of Cairn terrier sticks out from under the bed.

I’m so embarrassed.

(Or, if you are feeling particularly ornery, call it a spouse picture.)

Toby pleads with you to go to my website L Bowman Studios and order something.  Otherwise, he is going to have to keep going for walks with me ten times a day.

You can also order a copy of Dream Our World where Bitey and Toby go to the museum of their dreams.
