A Book and a Painting

We hit the jackpot today! The mailman delivered our "What Dog are You" book from Butchy and Snickers!

We started to read it and discovered that there are several quizzes that we have to take so we got a pad of paper and both of us were answering the same questions to see if we could match each other! I can't wait to see what breed of dog the book says that I should be! We'll make sure we give you a full book report in a couple of days!

We also got a painting in the mail that mom won on ebay! Mom really thinks that the dog in the front looks like me with that extra long beard and the aging face and natually the dog behind me would be Mitch with the shorter beard and bigger ears!


We both love riding in dad's pick-up truck so much! Our rides wouldn't be half as much fun if we only had mom's car!
Mom thinks it's a wonderful painting to add to our Airedale painting collection! Now to find the perfect spot!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

That's a great painting .. are you sure someone didn't steal a picture of you in Dad's pickup and paint a copy of it!

Cheers

Gus said...

Oh I do like that painting. It does look like you and Mitchie. Except, I wouldn't say you have an "aging" face. I think it is just a Maggie face.

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

What a great painting! It really does look like the two of you! Our book came too, but we haven't answered the questions yet. We are really wondering what kind of dogs we'll be...since Airedale isn't listed.

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Stanislaw said...

What a lovely painting! It looks just like you both (but you're a tad prettier, in my opinion). I bet if I took that dog quiz it would tell me that I'm a beast. And it would be right.

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

Congragulations on winning the book. We can't wait to see what dog you are.

That picture looks like a carbon copy of the two of you. Are you sure that you don't have a twin Maggie or Mitch?

We love the way you read books. Kaci and I should take lessons.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Harry said...

What a lovely painting. I wonder if it was indeed inspired by you & Mitch?

Cassidy says thank you for her birthday present. She has let me share some of the cookies and they are delicious! She's going to blog tomorrow.

I am thinking that the artist from ebay copied a picture of the two of you. That is a pawsome picture.
Don't you know what kind of dog you are?

Jake of Florida said...

You airedales are so photogenic. Every picture we see is even nicer than the one before!!!

Finding a spot for new pictures is a problem at our house too.
