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

Black and white sketch of Cairn terrier puppy.

Years ago I drew a sketch of Geordie when he was little.  I thought Toby also deserved a picture that actually kind of looked like him instead of the puppy in the green sweater as I often depict him.  So, this is my Toby…the bane of Geordie’s existence.  Mwahahaha!
