Puppy Love

10 x 12 acrylic on canvas

Here's sweet Emma...my latest commission. This is her when she was a puppy...all cuddly and cute and fuzzy. My friend Kathleen always says that "puppy smell" is her favorite scent in the world. If they could bottle it...she would buy it!

So the big move is this Thursday. I will be signing off the blog probably until next Monday when everything is up and operating in the new studio.

Funny thing before I go...Maisie keeps introducing us to our new neighbors by chasing bunnies into their yards. Hmmm...not so sure that's the best way to go about it but at least she makes us all laugh and get to know each other. The fence builders won't be able to start building until August 30th...so Maisie will not be able to roam on her terms until then. That's like saddling a wild pony. Help me, people!

Until next week...take good care everyone! xox

Looks like everyone feels the same way I do about my little girl. She always thought she was gorgeous too... Thank you Linda for my sweet, sweet painting.

What an adorable painting! Best of luck for BIG move. You're going to be so happy when it's all over. Oh, Linda... I absolutely LOVE the Dog's Rule book photos you've shared below. This will be a definite purchase for me. I can't wait. I'll be watching for it!

Take care and don't forget to bend your knees when you lift (if you lift... maybe you have someone doing it for you!)

I'm with your friend Kathleen - PUPPY SMELL!!! Can't get enough of it. What a sweet puppy painting. Uh, how ARE you painting, in the middle of a move??? You are wonder woman! Good luck today. Protect your back.

Oh, and Amy Evans, I think dog's feet smell like fritos too.
