Well aren't they the most cute and adorable "cushions" that you can find, and they don't need plumping up, and theyr'e self inflating. Don't you want to just cuddle them to death. Have a good weekend!!

I am in love with your dogs ..... oh how I long to scoop them up and cuddle them to bits! We have a very large ragdol called Alfie, who is the size of a small dog but very independant. I grew up with dogs and although I love cats it's not the same. But Working families and all that.... we have enough trouble giving Alfie enough attention! There he is crying now ...breakfast time....

I have a mini long haired sausage dog and she thinks just like your two. Oh how we spoil them, but oh how they love you back!!

I love your dogs! I have just caught up so wanted to say.. you can't have too many pebbles! I took my 2 year old to a toddler group on firday and she asked to sit down with one of the books, I read it to her and enjoyed it then turned back to see the author and the title and saw you were the illustrator! I think it was "Where there is a bear, there is trouble". I was very proud to know my daughter has such good taste in picture books!

Pretending to be a cushion is a tough job but somebody has got to do it, it especially helps if you are totally cute. There's something about doggy noses that I adore!

Lovely photographs of the dog.
