A little background on the 2 dogs:

Ollie: Ollie is the little dog with the folded ears. He was initially a foster, who suffered horrible abuse. When his foster mom took him in, she worked so hard and patiently with him. He was terrified of everything - cowering and shaking at every little sound and movement. Through her patience, he's become one of the sweetest, friendliest dog I've ever met. She ended up keeping him. On his daily walks, he stops by all the neighbors houses to say hello, wagging his tail and butt, the minute he knows he's going to get a pet. Once he gets his pet, he likes to move on to the next neighbors house for more of the same! ❤️

Simba: He is the dog in the stroller. He is an elderly dog that has arthritis, and has trouble walking - hence the stroller. His owner ( a neighbor), takes him out 3x a day, every day in his stroller, just like she did when he was able to walk. I think that is so sweet of her - he's a very lucky and happy little dog :)

Haven’t been around for awhile, thought I’d pop in to see some familiar names.
I did this for a daily sketch exercise yesterday. Pen outline with watercolour markers and wash. Thanks for looking.

Sorry for the blue cast to the image of Ollie! A poor iPhone photo. After I return home Sunday will do a proper scan.

Thanks, CaliAnn, Jo and Kay.
Kay, you’ve managed to capture a sweet personality in this depiction of Ollie. Perfect!
