I Received a Flying Airball today. That's a Furball that comes by airmail if you were wondering, It was from The famous Cat, and feared Art Critic ‘Marmaduke Ginger Bits’. He would like an interview with me to discuss my art, for his new urban magazine, Cats in The City. I was surprised, and a little bit apprehensive, as I’ve heard he sharpens his claws especially well for interviews; I’ll let you Know.
Thursday was an exciting day for me. Mum had ordered two reversable fabric bandanas from our friends Velma Tracy, and Leo at ‘Designsbyone, on Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5407097 Today they came, as you can see I was waiting for the Postman.....
Mum has to visit the horsepital today, and has been taking full advantage of labrador stress relief. I know how she feels, I dread a Vets visit. We may not be brilliant at spelling, but labradors are the perfect calming influence, in an owners life.. Omm, woofy, omm
Its been raining off and on all day here, its pretty miserable typical English weather. Still there's always a bright spot, its big weekly shop day, Saturdays, and the highlight of my day is when all the carriers of food are lined up on the kitchen floor. Its my solemn duty as ‘spider checker‘, to sift through the bags as thoroughly as possible before they are unpacked. I always like to do this when Mums out of the room, as I feel I don't wish to alarm her unduly, should find an eight legged interloper.
I was literally drooling all over a book on French impressionists, when I thought I might turn an arty paw in that direction today.
This is my latest pawtrait,inspired by a Mr.Monet; (Mum steadied my paw for the lilies)but the main part of the pawtrait is all mine.... While Mum and I held the brush, inspiration took hold of her and for some reason, she thought it might help if we both wore berets, apparently this was very funny, she kept giggling! I myself really got into the spirit of the piece after the mood was set, and although I enjoyed painting, I wont be cutting an ear off if its not perfect, ear cleaning is bad enough..
Thank you for dropping by.
I live with Mark and enjoy painting horses, dogs,cats,pets,wildlife and fantasy subjects, quite an eclectic mixture, but lots of fun.

Her new apprentice 'Prince' has just finished his intensive Training from our original Doggy Blogger 'Poppy',and has graduated with a full 4 paw BlogHound Certificate.

Now I know I'm only a Labrador; but I would really appreciate that you respect my Posts and Photographs. You should be warned that to ignore this; will probably resort in me and my Fox pack homeboys, tracking you down, and biting your Butt!
