"Trixie" is for my Facebook fan, Sue. Trixie is a Pug/Yorkie mix. She is built more like a pug, but her face isn't squashed in like a pug. She is more a yorkie and her hair grows like a yorkie too. She is a ten-year-old "puppy", because she doesn't act old at all. She still loves her toys and games, playing fetch in particular. Sue and Trixie take two walks everyday: a mile in the morning and a 1/2 mile in late afternoon. Between you and me, Sue is not a puppy either! There is much to say for walking. I told Sue to keep walking!
If you send your pet's pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org, I will make beautiful pet portraits out of them. How fun is that! At the end of September, I will do a drawing and one lucky person wins a free painting. You can buy the painting anytime, but there is no obligation. Thanks!
Today is Day Twenty Six of Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 Challenge. Four more days! After the month is over, I can sleep in if I want to. You wouldn't believe that this challenge has become a competitive sport. Sometimes Leslie, who lives in California, posts the blog early in the morning like 7:00 am. (She had probably scheduled publication.) I check in only to learn that twenty artists have already entered their entries! I'll be darned.
