Wordless Wednesday: Rocco Illustrated

Havanese at 18 weeks

About a week ago, we won a super cool illustration at a Twitter party hosted by That's the group started by our pals Paris at DogTipper and Carrie at All Things Dog Blog.

During the Twitter event, Nate Fakes, the amazing illustrator and cartoonist, posted the step-by-step illustration of Rocco as it progressed. It was so much fun to see it develop!

  13. I recall the phrase, "mah'lay-bonz" which I think meant; "you're a pain in the stomach. " Similar to this phrase was "doo-zee-pots," which now, as an adult who speaks Italian, I have come to know is a corruption of "Tu sei pozzo," "You are crazy." .
