Chalk One Up For Originality

Some may amuse themselves with a bone, or a simple game of fetch-the-stick…

Still others are content merely to chase their own tails…

But as for me, I am driven to create.

  1. What a superb puppy!!! waaaaw!

  2. victoreia says:

    So cute! *swoon*

  3. cellarmouse says:

    stop it baby-blue-eye…i see what you’re doing…

  4. CathyDee says:

    Or, if she eats some of the chalk, “Pastel Puppy Potty.”

  5. cellarmouse says:

    i’m gonna hold you & pet you & love you anyway…, you silly-billy…

  6. cellarmouse says:

    “don’t call my willy silly”…ok, i need to go to bed – but that is what my li’l fella says to me…

  7. CathyDee says:

    I’m all alone in the mod lounge! Where are the snacks? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

  8. ashagato says:

    I’m swooning with you, Victoreia! Becket’s a baby blue-eyed heart-stealer….

  9. Hey There CDee ! I was out back at the B.B.Q making s’mores . Here, (passing platter) have two or three !

    Hoping this was an adoption and now mom has been fixed, no matter how cute or talented her babies are!!

  11. CathyDee says:

    Mmmmmm.. Love s’mores. Thanks, Mudbug! Now I need some milk . . . .

  12. Yay for dogs with one blue eye! My Shih Tzu mix has one blue eye, and I tell kids in her Reading Buddies library group that it’s her magic eye the fairies gave her. Might be true!

  13. Chalk, it’s a lost art !

  14. Yup, yay for David Bowie eyes!!

  15. You’re welcome ! I really love them with those marshmallows that are the size of a human head !

  16. In pic 2, that anorable little body… Omg.

  17. David Bow-wow-wie!

  18. Let’s just hope he doesn’t draw a chalk outline of his hooman’s body!

  19. In photo two I can see the puppie’s belly.. ahhh warm puppie belley, me want!!!!

  20. I am ashamed at how long it took me to get that heading. I blame the cuteness of that pup from distracting me.

  21. Beckett is most definitely swoon-inducing!

  22. The elusive priamel!
    “Some say an army of horsemen
    others (say an army) of infantrymen
    others (say an army) of ships
    is the most beautiful thing on the black earth,
    But I say it is that which one loves.” – Sappho

    “Chalk is a lost medium.”

    Sorry, I’ll stop channeling Alec Baldwin now….. *slinks off*

  24. Shoulda named him Bowie. Beckett is cool, but if’n that were my pup. Bowie he would be. Or her.

  25. 😯

  26. I would love to see some of her artwork. If Merlin the Painting Dog can paint, I’m sure Beckett can chalk up some awesome pastels.

    Picture 2 looks like, “Hello. You are seeing me being the king of the mountain on you. Very good. Thank you.”
