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.
It’s been a tough week for this country—the Christmas spirit can be harder to summon during times like these. “Merry” doesn’t seem right, but we try. We can hug our family a little tighter, add a little extra brandy to the egg nog and be thankful for the love and life that we have. May you and yours stay safe and warm this holiday season.
Ajax, ink and water-soluble crayon on watercolor paper, 2010. Ajax is my Uncle Joe’s lovable bichon frise/King Charles spaniel/dachshund mix. The photos in the top row are from Uncle Joe and Ajax’s visit to Oregon, November 2009. Little Ajax held is own alongside his two 80-pound cousins at Short Sands beach in Oswald West State Park. Below, Ajax sits in his dad’s butterfly chair in Palm Springs.
