Today’s post is for Lisa and Dan’s dog Koty. A few days ago he cheated death—mauled by a vicious dog who went for the jugular and came within an 1/8th of an inch of the unthinkable. After two hospitals, emergency surgery, and a fighting spirit, he’s doing great—wagging, eating, and pooping… Yey puppner!

Readers all, send him lots of dogs’ pawz & tailz—dog speak for love!

    PEEEENNNNNYYYYYYYYYY! What an unexpected – LOVELY – surprise for me when I wandered over here this morning!!

    You’re the best! Best best best!

    Ohh…It was a close, close call. We almost lost our beloved boy Thursday night, but I believe Lady was up there watching out for us! How she loved her Koty!

    Thank you all for the well-wishes and the good thoughts. Koty is our miracle boy and is asking for a walk already!!!

    They are resilient to say the least…

    Thanks again Penny for the lovely illustration of our Koty.

    Much love,

    PS – you really captured his face here. He has always had a wise, thoughtful, pensive look about him and you got that look just perfectly!

    Awwwwwwwwwwwww. Poor pooch. What a resilient old bird. I hate it when people’s dogs get all mean. I’ve got a little pug and he’s been attacked twice but I’m pretty good at screaming and kicking, so he’s okay.

    Thanks for the verification on dog that isn’t quite beagle OR bassett… I wouldn’t have known about Walking Coon Hounds!
    Your drawings are wonderful… love all the roundness you get with your shading!! The otters are especially wonderful. May I snag them and send to a friend whose nick name is Otter?

    Best to you and yours.
