Still Life

We have a love hate relationship with our dogs...I dare not put a percentage to it.

Anyway, it's hard to get the dogs to sit still for a picture together without one of them licking, snarling, wandering off, or going hunting for socks.

Now we have a picture...a gift from our son.

He didn't get them to sit still either...he simply drew them in charcoal.

It's dead on...even including the current makeshift haircut we gave Winston, the special needs dog. The little white lines coming off Winston are a trick of the light, not drool, although that certainly would be appropriate.

We may have a love hate relationship with the dogs...but we will cherish that at least sits still.

Suddenly I'm repressing the desire for one our daughters to marry a taxidermist.
