  4. I want that puppy! He looks like he's yawning! :)

  5. Oh my gosh! Cutest puppy ever! Haha, wow. I can't imagine why that fellow is so reluctant. Perhaps the loud little feller is embarrassing him. Or maybe he is mad because he left the house in his socks!

  9. Of all the demure sets of striped pants I've ever seen...this sweet man is wearing them. and, look at how tidily his buttons are all done up...my, myyyy! I think the happy and free doggy is going to be very good for him, indeed! There's a whole story in there.=]

    It always feels like Christmas when you post! =]

  11. 3/4's view drawing of a dog for the win! But...why is that guy so sad? With pants like that how can he not be happy?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hahahahaha! Gotta get me a pair of those striped pants!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I can actually hear that dog...how'd you do that? And those pants are giving your red striped stockings some serious competition!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lol! Funny reluctant expression! Love this! and the dog is super cute!

  15. I love the dog, looks adorable ♥
    The guy looks embarrased...maybe it's not his god and he's just ashamed to take that little dog for a walk? I know some guys that don't like dogs unless they look fierce...maybe it's his mom's dog or his girlfriend's dog...ok, I better stop now before I start creating a whole story here XD

  16. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! The aqua stripes on his pants and that LITTLE FRENCH BULLDOG is just priceless, Elizabeth!

    Yes dearest, I am well! AND YOU????? You know, I resigned from my teaching job. Crazy, I know. But I will return as a French substitute teacher next year and they are must needed in my district because of the French immersion school where I work and where there are many teachers who are absent on a daily basis! But I am getting away from the heavy load of administrative work, and focusing more on DESIGNING....

    I wish you a happy day MAKING FUN ART! This is just delightful and thank you so much for visiting with kind words! Anita

  30. That dog is laughing at his owner's expense!

  31. This made me smile. I especially like the man's face.

  32. I love your sense of humor, Elizabeth. ;)

  33. Looks like the dog is saying...."See, I knew I'd get you to go out."

    ReplyDelete
  34. Is that dog laughing up his sleeve?
    Humans are so easy to manipulate.

  36. HAHAHAHAHAHA! The expressions on both of your characters are great. That incessant yapper lived in the house behind me for years. He drove me bonkers. Me … who is usually the epitome of patience and calm. In fact, once, after a solid hour of barking, I was so crazed that I got out the ladder, climbed up to see over the top of the fence, then sprayed him with the garden hose. (It only worked for about 5 minutes though.) Thanks for the memory, and the good belly laugh.

  38. This is so perfect, Elizabeth! I always marvel at your succinctness in line...yet you convey so much personality and emotion! I've heard those dogs before...and you've captured him perfectly! Hope you've been well!!
