Another Flowerdy Dog

Another Flowerdy Dog – Sharpie on Vellum

This is the same dog as yesterday’s post.  I know it was unexpected to have such a “normal” looking dog on that post, so today I can reassure you that I am still a little nuts.  :D   The photo reference was from Dewi at WetCanvas.

James M. Barrie (1860-1937), Scottish author and dramatist, best known for his character Peter Pan. The play Peter Pan or, The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up was first performed in 1904 and published in 1928;

All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, “Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!” This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.
