We Need Heroes (But Not You)

Mommy is drawn inside of the Ghost Buster symbol

When this virus first arrived, the news was filled with horror stories of shortages.  It saddened me to read of so much need and know there was nothing I could do.  But wait.  The Red Cross needed blood.  Surely I could at least donate blood!

Off I trekked to the Red Cross website to find the nearest donation location only to find that I do not qualify.   Despite being lumpy and chubby, I do not meet their weight criteria.  (I am not underweight, I am just very short.)  Even in this time of crisis, my gift is unwanted.

Bad girl.  No cookie.

Who, me? I wouldn't pee on the sunflowers.

Did someone mention cookies?

To make sure  my puppy remains happily plump enough to escape the Puppy Traffickers as well as donate blood…order a copy of Dream Our World!

Cover of the book Dream Our World

In Dream Our World, Bitey and Toby visit the Museum of the Imagination where they insert themselves into the artwork.  Plus, they get to enjoy a day of unsupervised fun because all the humans are banned from public spaces.

Dream Our World would make a great gift for someone stuck at home!

Dream Our World is available from Amazon.

Peppermint Ew

Humpity! Humpity! Humpity!

Hey Mommy, wanna play "Peppermint" with me?

I actually thought that I would be drawing pictures of Toby’s interest in girls by now, but this little boy still has a fondness for his toy peppermint.  People keep asking me if I have had him fixed.  Yes.  For some reason, though, he cannot seem to say no to this particular toy.  Perhaps he has a sweet tooth?

I’ve promised not to spoil his reputation with the ladies by telling about his hobby.  I just wonder….will his first girlfriend be a chocolate lab?

Butterflies

 

I have a friend who says that puppies' souls come back to visit their mommies as butterflies.

Butterflies 2

Perhaps that is why my boys enjoy chasing butterflies so much…they sense a kindred spirit.

Coming Soon!  Bitey and his little brother Toby will have their own book.  I got a proof back from the printer yesterday, but there had been a problem with compression when the manuscript was sent.  I fixed that and resubmitted, so hopefully it will be good enough to approve next time!

Teeny Tiny Toby’s Terrible Tuesday Temper Tantrum

 

Roar!

…which really took place on a Monday…but I am posting about it on a Friday!

I got fortunate in that Toby decided to throw one of these fits in front of the vet.  She was taken aback at the viciousness of his outburst.  She said that this is simply what he does when he doesn’t get his way, and no one should give in to him or he will learn that this is how he gets what he wants.  The down side?  This

Ouch.

I was feeling happy that my little monster had largely outgrown this phase, until today.  Then ol’ crabby pants showed up again to say that he did not appreciate the hug I gave him after supper.  Looks like I had better keep the Band Aids handy.
