Roxanne is obsessed with this horrible anthology of stories by Margaret and H. A. Rey. Over and over again we have to read about Katie Kangaroo and Whiteblack the penguin and Cecily G. and Elizabite. Seriously it is mind numbing, but one of the stories, “Pretzel”, is actually pretty funny. It’s about the longest dog in the world (hence the name) and his efforts to court Greta, the dog across the street. Greta wants nothing to do with Pretzel and no matter what tricks he does or what presents he brings, she just replies, “I don’t care for long dogs.”
Inspired me to draw this in my sketch book
He’s not quite as long as I had originally intended and this is his second muzzle (Charlie said the first one was “about 2/3 too big and I think he was probably right).
