My Boys


Blergh. Time got away from me, and I didn’t get any artwork done for today’s post.

We used to have two mastiffs, Liam and Cedric. It’s been over a decade and we still mourn their passing. I’ve been thinking of them a lot lately, for some reason, so I thought I’d share an older scratchboard drawing that I did a couple of years after they passed away.

Liam used to stamp when he was excited and many the time managed to spray mud all over himself. He was the thinker of the two, always aware of changes and trying to figure out how things happened.

Cedric had a terrific sense of humor. I had to be careful when walking with him because if someone passed by he liked to hop. It wasn’t even at them, just an up and down hop, but he’d learned that a lot of people squealed and jumped or ran off the sidewalk when he did that. He’d be so pleased with himself when they did.

Mastiffs are the sweetest breed of dog, but their lifespan is way too short.
