Illustration Friday - Run

well, i knew for a fact i wouldn't have time to do the drawing i wanted so here is a photo of the world's laziest dog! (sorry, i know this is a lame illo friday!) this is, in fact, my dog, shiraz. he has been an old man since he turned 8 months old! we like to play a little game with him to test his intelligence and agility. it goes a little like this:

"Shiraz, sit!" (no response)
"Raz, RUN!" (no response)
"Come on Raz, RUN!" (no response)
"Lie down!" ......"Good dog!"

from his expression, he's probably saying "You've got to be kidding!" which is his general attitude toward any type of movement. unless there is food involved of course! hope everyone has a great week!

it looks like raz adds so much to your life… some day. i'll make that trip down to the animal shelter and bring home a new addition to the family… from the looks of raz i'll bet that he would run if you tossed a scooby snack across the room… or maybe even shook the car keys…

God those eyes! What a great face and a fabulous name!

I agree with Anja. I have an almost nine year old dog who still acts like a puppy which is getting more and more annoying as the years pass. I like enthusiasm but when I coan't take him to soccer games because he wants to play with the boys, visit every dog and barks constantly...
