Tiny Cairn terrier puppy loks clueless as he chews his toy.

I was organizing some photos when I came across this one of tiny Toby.  From the time he came into this world, Toby has managed to take goofy pictures.  This one is no exception.

At this age, you can see that his left ear hadn’t entirely stood up, and he had traded his green sweater for a stylish hand-me-down harness from his big brother Geordie.  While I like remembering the puppy he was, I really love the dog he has become.

Thank you for bringing so much fun (and torment) into my life, little one.


School is starting, and that is a great excuse to escape into an alternate reality.  Come visit Bitey and Toby as they journey to the Museum of the Imagination in Dream Our World

The Carousel

What do you do when the router is working?  The same thing as when it’s out!

Patrons ride a coorful merry go round at an amusement park.

The theme of my last painting was Emotion.  This one is Happy Memory.  Originally I had wanted to create this painting using impasto and a knife, but the picture kept fighting back until it turned out this way.

Are you done now?  It’s soooo boring when you work.

Toby really, really, really didn’t like me working on this picture.  He positively exhausted himself with all of the stuff he shredded in disapproval.
