wag the dog?

"Does the dog wag the tail, or does the tail wag the dog? You see the tail moving, you assume the dog is wagging it, and enjoying it, but maybe the tail is wagging the dog, and the dog is enjoying the attention!"

Here's the puppy dog tail that I left off...



my hubby said to just leave it, no one would ever know, but I knew it would bug me, so it took me all of about 15 minutes last night to fix it and now I can sleep at night ;-)

Here's the whole thing again. Although I couldn't get a very good picture because it's so overcast outside today.



Don't forget to let me know if you'd like to enter the drawing for the chart (see below).

Hie hie, I just knew you were going to give that dog a tail. Does this mean I can enter the draw a second time since its a second post? : )) Just pulling your leg of course.

i'm always awed by great talent & understand the not leaving a dog's TAIL off. that's like leaving off feature on a doll's face...wait a minute...primitive dolls don't have faces. okay, it'd be like a statue not having arms...oops, venus... i just understand and would do the same!!! LOL>

Carol said...

Aww--the pup looks much happier now! Your sampler is gorgeous, Andrea...

Siobhan said...

I think he looked cute before, but he definitely does look much more complete with the tail. ;)
