For our prompt of “Greyhound” today, I learned that these awesome creatures come in lots of various colors and sizes, so I wasn’t sure which version to sketch. I didn’t have much time at all, so I did a very quick
One of my online friends has a greyhound. I think this is her 5th rescue greyhound. He was a racing dog and therefore lived in a kennel. Now that he is living the cushy suburban dog life, you’d think he would be all over it. And mostly he is, except he won’t sleep on the nice soft dog bed they bought him. He sleeps on the floor beside it, and uses it like a giant pillow. LOL!
A fast looking pup indeed! When we lived near Ft Myers FL we would see a lot of the greyhound rescue groups at Petco and they make super pets. The really strange thing about them is that they like to lean against you – it’s odd seeing a group of people with dogs leaning against their legs, as if the dogs had adopted us! If we hadn’t already rescued a wonderful dog that was part greyhound we would have been a speedy-dog family.
Greyhounds love to lounge in comfort and they have earned it. We have a greyhound rescue here and I am still considering adopting one. They need you home and our life is always a bit in Flux so we shall see.
Did you know that grey is an unusual color for a greyhound? And when they are grey, they are called blue? There are differing theories on the name’s origin, but one of the most popular is that the word came from the old English word ‘grei’, which meant dog, and ‘hundr’, which meant hunter. #doodlewashMay2020 #PostcardsForTheLunchBag…[Read more]
As I was going to figure out something to sketch for our prompt of “Wheat” today, I received an email from a food truck delivery service announcing it was International Burger Day. So, I ended up sketching a
Boy that burger looks so good Charlie! I am hoping to get downtown for lunch next week for either a burger or a chicken breast sandwich and a dark beer at our favorite Brewery. My husband is off all week so we will choose a quiet time to go. Baby steps and outdoor setting. Stay safe.
Fantastic burger Charlie, had I known in time I too would have celebrated with a burger … but when I found out on the late evening news my partner had the same non reaction as Philippe.. worse he said but we just had burgers the other night …no sense of occasion that man! I too am fussing about excess weight and uncut hair but then I remind my privileged self that two years ago I had no hair( cancer) and wouldn’t eat for days … reminds me how precious and lucky I really am even if I didn’t get burgers on the National day!
Did you know that wheat is used in particle board, paper, hair conditioners, adhesives, plastics, cups, golf tees, medical swabs, charcoal and more?
