We Are On Canvas For Posterity!!

Oil Painting of Welsh Terrier Hootie & Airedale Baby Rocket Dog [2010] by Amarillis Kroon
Print of painting Three Airedale Terriers[1921] by Otto D. Franz (German, 1871-1963)

Lookie, lookie! Hootie and I are now on canvas for the ages!! This year is a "landmark" birthday for our mommy (Nov 2nd ~ 6-0 years old), so Daddy got her this wonderful birthday gift. This special portrait of us was painted by our buddy Asta's mommy, New York artist, Amarillis Kroon. We think Miss Ami is a modern day Rembrandt! Mom is so thrilled with this portrait of us that she's been carrying it around from room to room since it arrived yesterday. Last night it rested in the folk's loft bedroom. We feel quite honored that Mommy's only wish for a gift was a portrait of us. Thank you Daddy and Miss Ami for making her wish come true!!

Smooches from pooches,

ps-For those interested in more of Ami's work or commissioning Asta's mommy to do a painting she has two websites:

This 'n That & A Recipe Too!

We can not believe it took Mommy over 4 months to get this recipe posted. Oh well. It's the one that Miss Theresa made for Hootie's obedience graduation fête and all us pooches enjoyed it.
The top cartoon was in the funnies last Sunday and made the old gal laugh like a hyena. We hope you also get a kick out of it. The poster pic was sent to us from one of our mommy's oldest and dearest friends, Sister Maria. We thought we should warn you all about that virus. ~ Wouldn't you know a feline is responsible! BOL!!

Baby Rock Star Dog!!

Okay, maybe this is a little misleading. Here's the story: Mommy volunteers to clean the church's teen center once a week. It's called The Rock. Anyway, it usually takes her anywhere from 3 to 5 hours to get The Rock cleaned and she usually takes me with her. Yup, I get to help. Mostly I guard the doors, but sometimes I go up on the stage and lay down. The other day I decided to give the microphone a whirl! See the photo of me singing into it? I decided, just for the day, to change my name to Baby RockStar Dog. The only thing missing is the screaming crowd. What do ya think??
