Give Us Stray Dogs



When I got home from working on Saturday, I found these signs plastered to our front fence and on the tree in front of the house! I got a huge tickle from them! I love how her line drawings are turning out these days. I find a lot of character in them and I can see much progress and refinement in her work. I found the first dog sketch on my light/tracing box. She must have drawn the first one, traced it, then added the fur to make the second. Clever darling!
Annie reminds me so much of myself at her age! I drew a lot, especially animals, and I would have done anything for a dog. Anything. I would even pretend I found a "lost" (neighbor) dog and bring it home and beg to keep it. Annie loves all animals, and even though we have dogcatfishsnakeguineapigcanarieslayinghens, she still yearns for more.

And by the way, don't give us stray dogs. Please.

Hi Kate, the signs are down because of the rain. Luckily, she went a little wild with the copier and I have just a *few* repeats laying around!

How unbelivably adorable? Annie is one of those rare souls that I can see being like a Mother Theresa of animals someday... They will FLOCK to her!! ( NO pun intended)
