Illustration Friday: Mail

Muffy always missed the mail. She just wasn't as tall as the other dogs.

This painting has been hanging in my house for some time. I love it. It reminds me of my dogs and their constant vigilance for things like squirrels and mailmen. I swear a robber could break into my house unnoticed if there were a squirrel on the front porch. (Please don't try it. I have nothing of value I promise). 

If you love this image and would like a print, you can order one here.

I can so relate. I need to get on a stool or a step ladder or climb up the kitchen counter to see or get stuff that is high up. Very cute illustration.

Poor little guy! Know what you mean about dogs not being very good about guarding their homes at all. Mine just licks every one he sees. Very nice illo!
