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.

Sad woman staands alone.

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

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!

Cover of the book 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…

Dream Our World is available from Amazon.

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.

Keep small business alive by ordering a pet portrait!

(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.

How Did This Happen?

Oh dear, how did this happen?

Nom, nom, nom. Woman wolfs down large plate of food.

Oh yeah. Total mystery, that one.

*********************************************

Cairn terrier puppy hold his food bowl.

I’m tellin’ you Ma, if you would give more to me,

you wouldn’t weigh as much.

Sadly, I have been having trouble buttoning my clothes lately.  If I were to want new clothes, though, they are considered “unessential”, so I can’t go to the store to try on and buy new.  That leaves me with few options…

.And just like that, Edith didn't have to worry about social distancing.(Not my image.)  (Tastefullyedited for my audience.)

Buckeyes

Drawing of a buckeye

What? Are you guys planning to go to Ohio State when you grow up? Go Buckeyes!

This day was so perfect! Nothing could possibly spoil it.

Toby innocently stands there, wondering what mommy is looking at.

Just wait till you see what I left for you in your shoe.

Cover of the book Dream Our World

Inside, Bitey and Toby visit a museum (all the real ones are closed, by the way) and view the world of art from a canine perspective.  They also get to explore the museum without any supervision.  Do they act like little gentlemen or naughty puppies?  Hmmm, I wonder…

Watch Out, Peppermint!

 

Toby and new stuffed girlfriend looking off into the distance.Isn’t this cute?  The two of them are even starting to look like each other!

Watch out, Peppermint.  Someone new is after your man.

This is Toby’s new “girlfriend”.  You may recall from Poopiter that my boy has a particular fondness for his toy peppermint.  Now, though, there is a new lady in his life.  This little gal doesn’t have a name yet, but I think she needs one.  Any suggestions?

The Flower Garden

A single yellow daffodil flower.

So far, this is the bounty of our flower garden.  I was fortunate to snap this picture before 6″ of snow fell on  the poor little flower and bent his stem.  Although the flower is intact, now it looks like he is kissing the dirt.

The flowers may not be enjoying the cold, but the puppies are going nuts for it.  Oh yes, and they peed on the flower.

Two Cairn terriers sun themselves near the door.

Can you believe that I have to share my spot with him?!?
