Growl

I just finished a new design called "Let Lazy Dogs Lie"... but before I show it to you, here is the lazy dog that inspired it!
Rufus the Swedish Irish Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier who lives in China... the fluffiest ball of barks in the whole world. (This was taken in his younger days... but he's still nice and curly!)

And here's Betsy, who has picked him up against his will. If you've got a dog, perhaps you can imagine the growl-yawn he's making at this indignity!
Grumpy much, Rufus? And his little tail says "Woof!"
Not for sale yet, but hang in there, it's coming! (I snapped too many of the little metal things off the back of my frame, so until I get another, no new listing! Joann's frames sure don't last too long... although I guess I probably framed and reframed about a hundred prints in there before it gave up the ghost!)

He's my parents' dog, so I don't get to see him too much anymore... but he really is lovely! Soft-coated wheatens are a great breed.

It took me a moment to discover the words. When I did, it made me smile. :)

He's adorable! And I love your illustration, that 'i'm not quite sure about this' look on his face is great
