The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

My Drawing

Wowie, look what mum got! It's a caricature of yours truly! A very clever lady sketched it for us & it's all personalised to do with me, me me!

It's not very easy to see it on a photograph, but there's so much detail on it. On the left is the garden & there's some mean looking squirrels around the tree. There's a sign out the that I'm supposed to have erected saying "Squirrels Out".

The list on the wall beside me is my "To Do" list. Sock collecting & washing up sponge eating are ticked off as done, but get squirrels is still to do.

The teddy bears are all eye-less, as are all my toys in real life as I always have to take their eyes of straight away. One of them says "I've been Oscar'ed" on his tummy!

There's a HUGE jar of peanut butter & my Kong on the floor, as well as my favourite Kong on a rope (I'm a BIG Kong fan!).

On the floor there are also lots of stickies & socks, another two of my favourite things.

On top of the counter there are buns & a cup of tea, as I like drinking a cup of tea on a Saturday morning. It says "Oscar's Surf Spot" along the counter as I do tend to counter surf a teensy bit (OK a lot).

The only bit I'm not sure I agree with are the bite marks on the furniture! I never chewed any furniture, even as a wee puppy. The muddy paw prints are pretty spot on though, hehehe!

Here's a close up of handsome me. My sash says "Squirrel Watch".

Isn't it a lovely sketch? Mum was so pleased with it. She has now framed it & put it on the wall with my photos & certificates. I'll have to get her to take a photo of the whole collection.

Very cool, Oscar! Now I want one! Maybe I can convince mom to take me to get my picture done since I didn't get anything for Easter - only the kids did. Not fair!

Happy Easter, Oscar!

This is a great drawing Oscar! Wow, I don't have one of those! I always get nervous when I click on all the Airedale links because, as you know, My Woman is very fond of Airedales. She says Tosca Do You Want an Airedale all the time. I'm biting my foot here!

Hi Oscar, I like to collect socks and sponges also. I figured out a neat trick where I push the door of the dresser with my front paw, then I can take the socks down to the garden and bury them. xxx Asta

Chelsea said...

That is an amazing sketch of you but, then again, the subject is ...easy on the eyes.

Don't tell T-MAN, He can be very jealous.
