I just found out my dog has a wrecked back, and that's why she was shivvering. argh. I love that dog so much. I'm not caring about anything else right now.

    I hope that adorable little dog is feeling better.

    Who is the artist?

    Oh no…what a beautiful dog! Dogs enter our family and reflect our longing for love and unconditional affection. They enter our hearts, eventually break them and our lives are less if we do not love them.

    I love the illustrations! I’m sad to hear about your dog – I always feel happy seeing her in your pictures.

  • Carl: April 27, 2018

    I hope Scoutie gets to feeling better. She is so cute.

  • clayton: April 27, 2018

    Very sorry to hear about your dog. Hope she feels better soon.

  • Nate: April 27, 2018

    Truly sorry to hear about Scoutie, the Lord God dog. Hang in there.

    Oops. Forgot the venerable Bridgestone catalogs from the late eighties early nineties!

    I love the energy in these drawings. Between the line art, topics like The Past & The Clem; Men & Mixtes; and Hanlebars, & maybe some b&w photos? the catalog is shaping up to be a Tour de Force among catalogs, one that could achieve the stature of an early Sears & Roebuck, Banana Republic, or Whole Earth. La Laine Chapeau!

    I’m sorry to hear about your dog. I hope she can be comfortable.

    Sorry about your dog! Hopefully will get better!
