Rufus looking at Sutton’s Farm

This is the first of two showings of this illustration. I find that sometimes those ‘permanent’ inks are not so permanent once you’ve sploshed a load of watercolour over the lines, so as an insurance policy I’m scanning stage one first.

What a lovely, peaceful illustration. It needs a story to explain what/why Rufus it gazing off in the distance.

A nice old-fashioned kind of drawing and a cute dog, though we always had border collies or kelpies.

Windblown, Rufus is saying 'Hurry up Mum, which way doe we go now?'

Wendy thought you might like to know the first time I saw (and fell in love with) a Staffie was in Taveuni. A family there had a gorgeous litter of little black puppies.

Julie,
Many of the dogs in Fiji are not treated well, cats also have a rough time. But my grand-daughter's pet was quite unusual - a huskie. A Korean lady apparently brought her huskies to Fiji and though they are snow kind of dogs, they are okay in Fiji but they lose their fur.
In Rakiraki we had a little bitzer, pale brown, we called 'Biscuit' because at the time I was eating cracker biscuits (3 months pregnant and nausia was a problem).
