A Dalmation

Autumn is obsessed with dogs. You know immediately when you meet her by her panting and drooping paws. She is more recently head-over-dewclaws in love with dalmatians.

We were at the dog park on Saturday and there was a beautiful, silky dalmatian named Freddie and Autumn got to “pet his spots.” Swoon!

When we got home, she pulled out her how to draw a dog book, turned to the dalmatian page (the reason we own the book in the first place) and drew a dalmatian with big lovely spots. I helped a little bit due to all the begging. I would draw a line, then she would draw a line. You can kind of see the two different ink colors. I tried to have a minimal presence but she loves to do things together, which is nice – most of the time. (Although, I’m beggining to wonder if I will ever get to stand under the water in the shower ever again.)

She seems to think we are going to get a dalmatian in the near future but she is sorely mistaken. Dalmatian drawings are nice though.

  1. Love those cheeks. Nice dalmatian!

  2. Dalmations have more energy than pretty much any dog–it would be perfect for her in that way!
