Dog with Opposable Thumb

Click to read captions

It was bound to happen! Dermott, our Old English Sheepdog, seems to have grown an opposable thumb. This is because there was a personal request, via a comment from Katherine of Making a Mark , for Dermott to reply to my cartoon - A Day in My Life - in which Dermott seems to think he was short changed (or big bummed, more likely).

Anyway he just slapped this sketch (above) on my desk. It seems he would do anything for Katherine, which may have something to do with the fact that she gave him a special award in her annual Making a Mark Awards (MAMA) for 2007.

Yeah yeah, your arse is still bigger than mine. Now I'm going to go and design the forerunner to the helicopter.

Hi Robyn, so nice of you to send me a message via email and offering your words of encouragement. Sketching is something new for me. I love your cartoon of Dermott. In a past life, I was a dog groomer. After 20 years, I retired from that in 2000. I love all your photos of Italy too. You really like it there and it shows.

From Rusty, who is not over-fond of dogs...
We may be different species, but we share the tedium of having humans who
struggle to communicate clearly.
I think my orange fur would be a perfect complement to that tourquoise-with-ermine-trim couch.

Oh, yes! You draw quite well. For a dog.

Hey Rusty. Guess what I'm having for tea tonight. You on toast.

Ronell - I'm only eight. I'm underage. Still, I'm game if you are.

My cat Hugo comments:

Dogs are amateurs when it comes to occupying couches...but the drawing is passable.

Tonight's menu is getting better by the moment:

Dermott - You are such an obedient dog!!! I'm sure she said to go on the couch...why not? It's so comfortable...

Cosmo is sitting next to me while I sketch. I think he could be taking lessons.....he might even challenge Dermott to a 'sketch off'!

;)

Dermott said...

Ah ... Cosmo! Long time, no see. The Joker to my Batman, Moriarty to my Holmes, Hillary to my Obama.

My menu is complete:

Rusty on toast

Hugo with a dollop of cream

Cosmo, my toothpick.

Katie Jane - I notice Dermott hasn't given you any cheek. He obviously knows, as a former dog groomer, you have the upper hand.

I think it's about time I seized back control of my blog.
