A writer and editor by trade, I love to draw—mostly pictures of my dogs, River and Calla. Here, I post drawings, photos and other artwork of the two cutest animals ever (and some of their very adorable friends). Subscribe to get an email when there's a new drawing. Questions? Contact me. Elsewhere on the web: My Dog is Chelsea and Remember the Pudding.

Calla, iPad drawing using Adobe Ideas, 2013. We left on Thursday for Omaha, and this was her expression while we packed. We’re home now, and Calla is once again curled up on the couch, worry-free.

River Dog always steals my pillow. She seems to think it’s a funny trick.

Lucy and Sophie! I can only hope that when I have a kid of my own, River and Calla will be half has loving and tolerant to my child as Lucy is to Sophie.

This is Richard, a Weimaraner. I’m playing around with Adobe Ideas. A pretty spiffy app, if you ask me.

Dog in Riverside Park, charcoal on charcoal paper. I drew this in high school, probably circa 1999, of a dog I met on a walk with my Springer Spaniel, Chelsea.

This was one of my earliest dog doodles: a painting of my childhood dog, Chelsea, sitting on a balcony. It was inspired by a Matisse painting and Chelsea’s love of porch-sitting. It was hanging in my mother’s office for years, but currently doesn’t have a home now that she’s retired. Acrylic on canvas board, painted circa 1999.

Yesterday at Thousand Acre Park. Right before I took this, River went up to this horse, licked its nose and ran away.
