Dog Cookies, Psychic Readings, and Snowmen


Either I’ve been reluctant to post lately because of a lack of images or because I’ve just been plain lazy (more likely). To make up here are a few tidbits from my neighborhood. There’s a new pet store in town, and they have dog cookies that look better than people cookies! This is also the place where Mochi got her new pink-polka-dot collar and leash, so that will probably be appearing in a drawing soon!

Don’t let the “open” sign fool you, there’s no one there anymore. As Russ says, you’d think they would have seen this coming?

I did however stop to take photos for future reference, and maybe if the building doesn’t sell soon and it gets warmer outside, I can do some drawings through the windows.


And best of all, we had a lovely snowfall this week — which was a nice reprieve from all the ice storms lately. We even got home early enough to build a snow man next to the sculpture in the front yard.


Mochi helped by biting off the carrot buttons. Now there’s a dog who loves her veggies!

  1. Thanks for the video Del — what a hoot!
    Actually we don’t give our dog cookies, we’ve been trying to keep her under the illusion that vegetables are the best people food we have to offer.

  2. my favorite “Talent for Senate” sign was in the yard of a psychic here in St. Louis…made me laugh everytime I drove by, I even took some pictures…sadly, they too, weren’t very good at what they did because we all know how that turned out…they have since gone out of business.

  3. Those dog cookies do look good! Yum Yum!
    I love your snowman…and you must be so proud of Mochi for eating her veggies! Barker would have opted for the cookies, altho Mochi probably would have too!
