Side Profile Sketch of Kali Mazoo Michigan

What would we do as humans without our pets? Here's a side shot of my puppy. Her full name is Kali Mazoo Michigan but goes by Kali or just Mazoo for fun. (I already posted this picture but will do it again because I also did a rough sketch of her using this photo.)

What do I love the best about my dog, besides her Cairn Terrier attitude? It has got to be her fuzzy ears but her teddy bear button nose comes in at a very close second place.

I'll also type the blurb I composed quickly with my sketch, it may be hard to read since I used my camera to take a picture. (I hope to have a scanner soon!)

"Kali Mazoo Michigan was adopted from a family with 7 kids, 2 dogs, and one tabby cat. She was just a pup at the age of one - but her family went inside and outside constantly. Her favorite passtime was to escape out the door for a breath of fresh air by herself. Her favorite place to run to was the nearby golf course. This is when her rather large family decided that she needed as smaller home...

And that's when we found her and fell in love with her Terrier personality. So we safely attached her leash, and she walked out the door to her new home with us."



This will probably be the first of many Kali sketches, pictures, and stories. (I'd also like to watercolor her.)


If you've got a pet, give them an extra treat and tell them how much you appreciate them. They work so hard to please us!

I can imagine Kali escaping and racing all over the lush green golf course--hehe! She's lucky to have found your family. :)

Comment on your twitter - We have decent (non-flatscreen) TV and no cable. We DO however, subscribe to Netflix. Not so lame!;)

Soulcomfort - Aw thanks! :)

scquiltadditct - Thanks for the kind words :)

leah - Great idea! I might just do that!! I'll be sure to post it and let you know if/when I do :)

lyz - I also have Netflix...I rather enjoy it...a lot! Sometimes I wish I had cable but other times I'm glad I don't. There isn't really a lot of good stuff on TV and I'd really rather be reading a book or surfing the net :)

lynn - Aw! Thanks for your kind words. I can't imagine life without Kali...pets quickly become part of the family, don't they?

Is he/she a Westie? It looks just like my dog who is a White Westhighland Terrier. Cute Pic!

Hi Carla! Kali is a Cairn Terrier...she isn't as white as a Westie...she's more of a dirty blonde :) Terrier's are the best though, aren't they?
