awesome awesome Robin (who you should check out because her digital painting skills make me weep, also because she makes me laugh till I cry) made me realize I’ve never shown my dog children here, even though their antics make up the majority of my life. yup, above illustration and cooking and all the things that my life is occupied with, these butts kind of take the cake.
1-year old Mickey the American Bulldog on the left, and 7-year old Tucker the Pembroke Welsh Corgi on the right. this is from a photo shoot from Mickey’s recent first birthday, and neither of them were very pleased with the hats, but they are patient creatures. Mickey is your typical bulldog, except he’s 80 lbs and still growing, obsessed with snuggling and flowers, and is the biggest most ridiculous baby in the world. Tucker is diplomatic and commanding, devoted, protective, and extremely patient. he’s also alpha over his rather larger younger brother. Mickey’s favorite movie is Homeward Bound which he sits and watches the whole way through, and Tucker has a long history of nursing and raising small animals (examples include frog, turtles, kittens, Mickey).
