News!

We're getting a puppy!
The litter was born yesterday :)
My boys will have a new best friend
this summer,
and I'm so excited!
I haven't had a dog since I was in college
and I miss it so much.
His name will be Turbo.
Made this watercolor today,
can you guess his breed?

*I'll be back tomorrow with the F.A.Q.

What fantastic news for everyone! I have some friends that are Border Collies. My human mom says they are very intelligent, even though I don't understand why they keep trying to herd me!!

We have a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd cross and we love her to pieces! Turbo is a very descriptive choice of names; our dog is 4 months old and completely crazy but what a fantastic hound. Have fun. And, thanks for sharing all of your artwork. I have recently ordered some of 'your' journals from Dick Blick and I cannot wait for them to arrive.

It looks like a border collie, very smart dogs but they need to work a lot. Try agility, they are the best.

We had a border collie/golden retriever mix when I was a kid. She was MORE border collie though and treated children like sheep attempting to herd us whenever we were outside playing!

Congrats to the whole family!
