The Dog Ate My Artwork... ;-/

slightly chewed Foggy print
So we were on vacation -- a train trip to the midwest for our 35th anniversary -- and some of my prints fell into range of my paper loving dog, Loki:

Loki does love his Starbucks
I think it only got chewed in passing -- he was actually after a packet of Southern Winter/Northern Summer Solstice prints (the backyard series)! Luckily they were still in their plastic envelope and my son was able to rescue them before any damage was done. But Foggy wasn't so lucky.
Now that wouldn't be such a problem -- except: that particular print was up on ETSY and it had just sold! Yikes!
I didn't have many Foggy prints on hand, and none of the others were as nice as the one in my shop. So I printed up some more, and one or two of those look similar to the chewed one.
As soon as they dry I'll send one off to my patient patron. And hey, she gets a great story to go with it, right? ;-y

At least your dog is living up to his name! Take heart that it wasn't the block that he decided to alter.

Me too. ;-> I'm eventually going to carve or etch it. He's inhaled it and pulled the sides of the cup in, just like a little kid. ;-]
