a recent coloring page


Layla colored the picture below. It is a picture of Callaway, one of our dogs.
{pictured with her above}
She loves our dogs and sometimes they love her. They are older and she is kind of loud.
They like quietness. There is a lack of quiet in our house.

See the pic she colored. Looks just like him.

Complete with whiskers, a red eye {huh?} and what she called a tumor on his ear.
I'm not sure when he got a tumor on his ear, but when I asked her what it was, I thought she would say it was an earring. Not. so. much.

So I know what you are thinking.
Why would a four year old color a tumor on her dogs ear? He had one removed from his leg awhile back. {see it in the color pic above}
She talks about the tumor often.
She notices when he gets more bumps and growths as he gets older. They are just 'dog bumps' that most dogs get when they get older.
AND he is VERY pale and sunbathes all. the. time!
He is completely healthy for an almost 12 year old dog, and we love him very much. I'm hoping he will be around for many more years. I'm also hoping that he will stop growing these bumps and stuff so my daughter will stop worrying her little four year old self to death about him.

It is so sweet that she loves her doggie so much. She must be one smart little girl to remember the dog having that bump removed and then to draw to it:) I hope your dog is around for a long time too!

How sweet! I hope she can stop worrying about him too and that he's around many more years.

That is sweet and I hope you have many more years to come with your pups, one of ours is 10 this year, I wish they were like tortoises and birds and lived for 50+ years. That picture is surely one for the scrapbook!

That is so cute! Don't you love to see little kids' perspective on things? Their pictures are so revealing.

Have a great day!!
