I’m a Pebble Pal and I’m OK

I sleep all night and I sit all day.
I’m the perfect pet, I never eat
You’ll have no allergies.
On Wednesdays I sit even more
Sprinklers wash over me


I knock down birds. I skip ‘cross ponds.
I like to press wild flowers.
Warm me in an oven
I’ll sit on your back for hours


I hold doors open, papers down,
I’m faithful as a clock
I’m pretty cute to look at, but
I’m dumb as a rock.


See many more Do-It-Yourself Painted Pebble Pals over at TrendSpotter Magazine. Totem-licious, Sender-Inner Tracy 😉



  1. Low-maintenance!

  2. Whoa! For a minute I thought the first one was actually little puppy!

  3. Sometimes, they leave gravel behind on the carpet.

  5. better than the pet rock

  6. At least you don’t have to follow them around with a plastic bag on yer hand…

  7. saucy bernaise says:

    The Ren and Stimpy reference is great! Does anyone else think these are kinda creepy, or is it just me?

  8. Am I the only one who can “hear” I’m a Lumberjack from Monty Python???

    I’m a Painted Pebble Pal
    and I’m ok
    I barely eat
    I skip cross ponds
    I like to hold doors open…

  9. Renée!

    Lumberjack Wannabe

  10. Stephanie C. says:

    Love it.

    Actual lumberjack (hooray for college!)

  11. berthaservant back home says:

    I didn’t see the original one, so when I read Renee’s comment I was “like, duh.” Sorry Renee.

    Nice reviszh Meg.

  12. The first one I looked at without reading, and I thought it was a lil white pup with an E-collar on! Laying in the grass!

    Now that I get it, I’m surprised I was fooled.

  13. OMG! I inspired Meg???? I’m soooooo blushing!

  14. dang… so excited I totally forgot to mention that I LURVE the rewrite!

  15. I have no crafty talent, so I can’t make one myself…who sells these? Tooo Cuuute!

  16. Love this .. We have a racoon rock in our living room…. As a decoration.

    For those who have never seen it here is one version of the Lumberjack Skit

    Monty Python is so inspired!

  17. Kim Check at local craft fairs and there may be some online.

    I got mine from a local artist she also made rock houses taht were beautiful.

  18. Okay I did a quick search and found this site if you send themm a picture of your pet they will paint a rock to look like your pet


  19. My cousin (who happens to be named Tracy, wonder if it’s the same?) paints rocks like that! I have a fawn at home that holds my door open. Lurve.

  20. Years ago, I bought a red fox version of this at an auction. Didn’t know it had become a DIY thing.

  21. Wait a minute. “Unusual Animals”? Shouldn’t this be “Product Cuteness”?

  22. I concur. This should be “product cuteness”!

    Nicely done work! [applauds]

  23. “I wish I was a boulder,
    Just like my dear Papa!”

  24. wannadance says:

    Sorry Annie, I’m not your cousin. Just someone who luuurves CUTE!

    xxoo Tracy (post sender inner)

  27. OK, listen up- I bought the book on how to do this. It is a wonderful book.
    It is impossible to do and I really admire the people who can, I sooooo wanted to make myself a little village of Rock houses with furry little rock critters-alas, all I have it rock that look remarkable like sloppy paperweights.

    If anyone know the person or people who do this, tell him/her/them how incredibly talented he/she/they/it are(is).

  28. OH OH OH!!! They were painted by my friend SUZI CHUA. You can see more here: http://suzichua.com

    I also paint on rocks. It’s not that hard to do. Suzi offers a CD and e-book on how!

    I’m gonna tell her that she’s on cute.com. She’ll be thrilled!

  29. i have one of a kitteh! It is SO realistic looking.

  30. Flora and Suzi- you have my undying respect. I got stuck after I picked out the damned rocks! Best of luck, and may you populate the world with these wonderful things!

    I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK…earworm….feh…

  31. I never wanted to be a real dog!

    I wanted to be… A PEBBLE PAL!

  32. I put on women’s seaweed, and hang around in (sand) bars…

  33. I about peed my pants because I thought the first one was ferr reuhlz.

  34. Suzi’s website is http://www.suzichua.com. You need to add the www.

    [The version without WWW works for me… about half the time. Weird. Anyway, you need to add the http prefix and leave at least one white space after the URL, if you want it to be clickable, like this: http://www.suzichua.com – Ed.]

  35. llluuuummmmbbbbberrrr jack song!
