I loved writing and illustrating this book. Animals are a favorite subject matter for me, and I LOVE dogs, so I included as many different breeds and mutts as I could. They come in so many shapes and sizes - short legs, long legs, pointed ears, droopy ears. Great fun to draw, especially faces.....long noses, smushed noses, crazy spiked fur, shaggy thick fur. So grab a pencil and start sketching!!
