Illustration Friday: Focused (High Chair Bounty)



This old dog is focused on possible food drops - but he probably won't be getting the steak he's hoping for.

This was inspired by my dog's super-sonic-speed realization that baby chairs equaled food, while my nieces were visiting.

Awwww how cute Paige!!! Love the perspective on this and that doggie :)

My pups do the same when my kids bring firends to come visit ad the table is full of them. They are older but all together still make a mess lol

This turned out well, I love the floor and the wash on the wall especially. My dog does this every time my grandson eats.
