Little PIg

Hey everyone- I've never posted here before (though I'm quite sure my sister nightlysparks has), but I lurk quite faithfully and always turn to the community as a source of daily inspiration for any Boston art I may be doing... Thanks for having such cute little pigs, it's always fun to use 'em as reference! :)

Anywho, I figured I'd post a sketch that I drew up yesterday while practicing some ink techniques- it's just a quick little baby Boston, and I figured you'd all enjoy it:



And, while I'm on the topic, would anyone be interested in portraits of their pigs in such a style? I was thinking of selling a few commissions and/or starting up a store if there was interest.

Just wanted to let everyone know that www.jbpet.com is having a sale- 10% off dog clothing. I checked out a few of their nice heavy coats and the sweatshirts and they seem to be pretty cheap, so you might want to stock up now before it gets too cold out for our little pigs! :)

question...

Does anyone have a Roadie canine safety harness for their Boston? I'm about to order one online, but I don't want to get the wrong size! Griffin's right at the edge between 2 sizes and I'm afraid it'll either be too small or too big. I was wondering if anyone knew if I should err on the larger or smaller side or if they tend to run big or something.

Here's one of the websites that sells them just for reference/illustrative purposes:

Update on the Lulu

Thank you so much for all your opinions. I did as everyone suggested and bought her a wire crate. I almost cried today when I put her in it and went to work. When I came home all her blankets were crazy and there was water everywhere. She spilt it all. I forgot about the little water things for the crate.

I wish the guy helping me at Petco would have suggested it to me and I would have bought one then. I gave her treats going in the crate, when she was in it, and when she came out. Hog too of course ;)

I got her one for up to 25 pounds I would die if she outgrew it since I spent 60$ on it. I wanted to buy the sheepskin pad for it too but I know she would chew it up in a heartbeat. I also put the shirt I slept in in there with her blankets. It is so nice to come home and not have everything chewed.

It is also nice being able to love on her and tell her shes a good girl instead of having to be mad at her everyday lol. I read all the crate information and I already knew this but I wanted to type it nice and big for the people who do this. I have seen people quite a few times saying they do this:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT USE THE CRATE EVER AS A FORM OF PUNISHMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks again guys what would I do without you?

Boston's Rule

BOSTON BUDDIES 2006 CALENDER RESULTS!!!

RECENT CALENDAR RESULTS!!!
Read this carefully and laugh along with me!!!

Since we had Molly Belle in three months and it looks like the majority wants her to be in October with Tuffy, the runner up for January is Whitney and November is Otis.  HOWEVER Whitney is already in December, which means if we would have made the rule for it to go to the third runner up, Otis would be January.  Since Otis will be either January or December either way, I have decided to leave the voting to everyone.

We also have to have the runner up for November, which we have a three way tie!!!  So we must vote again for that month as well!!!

Are we having fun yet?
