City Dogs…

Living in the city, I see so many adorable dogs on my morning commute. And since I usually leave my door around the same time every morning, I see the same puppies walking with their people on my walk to the train.

I know that getting a dog right now is completely out of the question… shoe box apartment… fashion job that keeps me in the office too late… but one day, some day, I would love to have a little dog.

Until then, I can certainly draw them! How adorable are these pups and their fashionable ladies? I just added two more to the shop as 8 x 10 prints. If you love them as much as I do, consider taking one home for yourself =) Have a great start to your week!
