Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!

I learned this morning, from many blogs, that it is Dr. Seuss's birthday!  And there is a fun theme going around.  So, I decided to dedicate this post to my favorite Seussian pooch, Max, who had to deal with a lot over Christmas, and had a pretty terrible owner, but everything worked out in the end.

As drawn by Chuck Jones

Since Dr. Seuss was not just a writer, but an illustrator, I decided to do my poem with a picture!

Upon waking up, Indiana looked up in dismay
And realized he was wearing an antler today
He grumbled and mumbled and said, "These aren't for wearing, but chewing!"
Now, he's in the corner glaring at me and stewing.

(I didn't actually tie an antler to Indiana's head.  They are one of his favorite chew toys though.)


  1. I absolutely adore both the post and the drawing!

  2. Does this mean we could call Indiana a "bonehead"?

    Tho that would not be nice
    that bad nickname you see...

    We'll nickname him Hoosier
    that's OK ... agree?

    (PS we are new to your blog; it is lovely, as it your art)
