I don’t know what this doggy’s name is but I love him! (or her?) This is the latest from James Parker’s Windows to the Words Art challenge. I just want to throw my arms around this sweet looking dog and give him (her?)a treat!

  4. Super, Lauren! This is Maggie Mayer's pooch (Trusi, I think) doing what all good dogs should do…showing us humans how to chill out and relax. He is posted and linked, and I am honored by such marvelous artwork. Thank you so much.
