Today is National Puppy Day so what better than a whole litter of puppies!
This stamp reminds me of my puppy, Tessa, and her litter mates. I went to see them when they were about 6 weeks old and were weaned off of their mother and just starting to eat mushy food - and they all shared it from the same bowl. They would step in the food sometimes and then track it all over their pen. There is a lot of clean-up and laundry involved if you breed dogs! Whoever designed this stamp's image sure knew what they were doing!
I stamped the image in Distress Tea Dye ink as it is close to Tessa's colour, then watercoloured it with various Distress inks. I added the pawprints on the bottom right to balance with the sentiment.
Tessa is now 10 months old and no longer steps in her food and is growing up into a well-mannered (most of the time) and very sweet young dog (most of the time). I should update my avatar to include her as I no longer have Shea, the brown dog in my photo.
