Animal Wednesday : Tennis Anyone?

This is an old old old old illustration I did when I was sending out greeting card portfolios. It seems every Golden Retriever has a tennis ball obsession. I like the photo card of the Golden who has about five balls in his mouth at once! Ever seen that one?

Happy Animal Wednesday you guys!


  1. Aw, he is just ADORABLE!!!


  2. Awww, so cute! :)

  3. I want a dog with a ball obsession-I really do. I am encouraging Moonie and Oliver to chase balls and such.....with a ball obsession comes a way to exercise them without running around yourself (if need be).

  4. i like his balls (umm, the ones round him, he is so golden and so cute. hugs and HAW to you too friend.

  5. Goldens are the perfect dogs! We had the sweetest golden ever. His follow-up is a yellow lab - also quite sweet, but not as eager to please. And all labs I have known seem to have ADD. Not so, goldens. Nice drawing!

  6. Since I was traveling I missed out an seeing other's Animal Wednesday, but am SO glad I saw this one. It's wonderful! I love the background and the colors and you have caught the dog perfectly.
    Really great for a Happy AW

  7. your old old old old illustration is soooo fresh, lively and lovely...
    because of the colors
    because of the tennis balls
    because of the wavy hair of the dog
    and because of the love
    brimming in the dog's eyes...

  8. My sister in law raises Goldens. Great job. Kathy
