Draw the Dog
Y'all may remember a few short months ago my life was relatively drama free. Not chaos free, but drama free.
That was before Daisy the Alpha Chihuahua Mare came into our home. Don't let this little darling fool you for one second. She has taken over. Rules the roost. Wears a Snuggie. Bosses around the cats. Shatters wine glasses with a single bark. Sprouted wings. Nothing is too high or off limits. She has a tenacity and cunning that makes her a perfect candidate for the CIA doggie core. Does the CIA have a doggie core?
As I type, Her Majesty is taking a regularly scheduled morning nap perched on my lap. I could set the clock by this nap. I fear when the clocks go back for daylight savings time. She must be dreaming about having the lead in Swan Lake because her tiny paws jete mightily.
Be that as it may, I want to introduce Draw the Dog. This is a fun site co-hosted by a former Disney illustrator. He takes dog photos then illustrates them into a cartoon with Bruce Kasanoff. This alone would be entertaining but the real kicker is being able to watch as the cartoon draws itself. Sign up for their daily email and start the morning with a hearty laugh. They are having a contest. You can read about it on their site. It's for a good cause. The winners get to choose a favorite dog rescue group to receive a fundraising cartoon. You might know a nice blog to submit.
On another note, the Bostini has been pre-empted by a very nasty virus which has thrown me under a bus.
The most I can manage is lemon ginger tea with a side of aspirin. Much grumbling amongst the natives who have eagerly anticipated the Bostini . They suffer. They suffer much. There is no mercy once one is found out to bake weekly from Rose's Heavenly Cakes.
