Raining cats and dogs is one thing.  But washing cats and dogs?

An entirely different story! 

Today's illustration sees our intrepid black kitty cat and French bulldog in a delicate situation ~ but whether it came about because of raining or washing, we can only begin to surmise.  Knowing them, I'd lay money a quest for prosciutto was involved.  If this illustration was Scratch and Sniff, maybe more would be revealed.  And on that note ...

Happy Venerdi in Venice to you!

Never let life's letdowns lick you.

A golden labrador on the other hand?  One of the best things ever!  And on that note ...

Fashionable Francophile Friday : Carousel and Totes Adorable

When you and your furry friends are inseparable, you'll need means and ways of taking them everywhere.

A simple tote can suffice if you have a well-behaved sidekick and who are we kidding?  This kitty is just barely more likely to stay put than a pig is to fly.  And not above biting the hand that feeds her.  Or giving a gentle nip of displeasure at least.  Our cute French bulldog is guaranteed, however, to stay put and smell the roses.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Francophile Friday to you!

Fashionable Francophile Friday : Coffee at Café Marly

1.3.19

There's always one in every crowd who simply can't resist messing around with a perfect photo opportunity!  Cheeky thing.

Today's fashion illustration with a flaky-pastried, francophile flavour sees us taking poetic license with the menu on offer at Le Café Marly brasserie at the Louvre in Paris.  Having focused on the consumption of coupes de champagne, berries with cream and éclairs au chocolat, my memories are hazy as to availability of croissants and pain aux raisins.  Pawhaps these were smuggled in under her jumper.  No risk of being caught ... her furry sidekick can make short work of the evidence if she gives him a wake-up nudge!  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Francophile Friday to you!

Fashionable Furry Friends Friday : Karl and Choupette Furever

22.2.19

The world lost one of its very brilliant creative souls when Karl Lagerfeld passed away.

And a very sweet kitty cat lost her adoring Papa. 

Karl Lagerfeld is quoted as saying, "I am not the most important person in my house. I think Choupette made me a better person — less selfish.”  For those of us who share our lives with animals: we understand well what he's saying!  And on that note ...

I just dropped in to say I Woof you !

While love should be celebrated every day, all year around and all that - it's fun to have a day that's especially devoted to love of all shapes and sizes.  Can you really have too much of a good thing, after all?  And on that note ...

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

When life gives you polar ice-cap conditions, wear a faux-fur cap to match.   

Today's illustration sees our fashionista choosing goosebumps over a sensible coat.  I'd roll my eyes but we've all done it.  For the sake of her and her canine companions, let's hope the interior of their carriage in heating doesn't lack, for their kitty cat driver is known to stray off the beaten track.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Ready for a hula-va lot of fun this weekend?  These loves are!

Today's illustration is perfect for this time of year where I live, with humidity high and iced-tea levels even higher.  But if you're presently shivering under a blanket of snow, I hope this scene warms the cockles of your heart.  If that fails, there is brandy.  Instead of our hula-dancing French bulldog, we'll find you a Saint Bernard.  {Do take care if the weather is crazy around you.}  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you!

When life hands you snow, make snowballs !

Today's fashion and fluffballs illustration sees our ballerina braving post-blizzard conditions to entertain one heck of a tough audience.  Sadly for her, these furry friends find snow to be far more fascinating than fluffing around in an inappropriately freezing tutu.  Who knew?!  And on that note ...

Let the party season continue to roll !  In Australia, we do love to keep the festivities going until - well, pretty much the end of January.  What can I say?  We love to enjoy life.

Today's illustration takes the 'pug' out of 'pugnaciousness' with an adorable little cuddle ball who's a lover not a fighter, all dressed up and hopeful of someplace to go.  If there are bacon bits to binge on, all the better.  And on that note ...

Happy Furry Friends Friday to you!

PS:  Take this cutie home with a print-to-order goodie from my Society6 store.  The direct link to the fine art print option is HERE and when you scroll down that page, you'll find the other available framed, canvas and merchandise options.   Thank you and enjoy!
