Rocky & Teddy

Sir Rocky in his stylish Xmas sweater a gift from his friend in the North.
A quick post about these two.
Rocky & Teddy.
The last post peeked a touch of interest from some.
So here goes.

We have two Lhasa Apsos.
I grew up with Lhasa's.
In my lifetime I have never not had a Lhasa Apso somewhere in my household.
In my retirement... I will most likely become a Lhasa Herder.
I will own a small farm/ cabin with a few acres
Most likely in Prescott, Az. next door to Tim Holtz's property.
Yes... I think that might work.
A deluxe property where Lesley and I can
raise Lhasa puppies and host incredible art retreats.
A Lhasa farm filled with about twenty of these.

This is Rocky... an emotionally unbalanced creature.
That likes to chew all things.
He is a paper addict.

Remind you of anyone.

Below is Teddy... he is the leader of the duo.
He is also a paper addict.

When not looking for extra scraps of paper on the studio floor.
He can usually be found like this.

Such lovely monsters. They loved last weeks rain.. in and out...
mud prints all over.

White tile mind you..

Back later tonight ....
With peeks of classes and more...
CHA Pieces, etc...
Have a great day everyone.
Talk soon,

Sounds like the best retirement ever.

Love the pics of the dogs! So you are their "pimp" and provide them the drugs they need huh... Paper addicts!!! I have 3 Yorkies and I too would love to be Tim's neighbor!

The puppy picture - adorable!

Hi Mike and Lesley
Good choice - we have two Lhasa Apso's too. Bailey is a 4 year old grumpy old man who plods about the place and Kyipo (Tibetan for peace and happiness) is his 2 year old fun loving daughter who skips and leaps and is generally skittish. Both wonderful characters.
What a happy retirement - think I'll bag the place the other side of Tim's and help you with your puppy farm.

I can't imagine where they get their paper addiction!! Do they go for beeswax as well??!!

What's the deal with paper addict pets?!? I have chased my cat down the hall to pull soggy half chewed paper out of her mouth that she has found on my "Wizards Room" floor.

CeCe said...

Well, well, well. I love your art but these two darlings are competing for my heart. You might have to include them in some of your bees wax creations! Thanks for sharing the adorable pictures. Might have to have another pet someday and you now know what kind of dog I am thinking about.
