A little walk

Steven and Shelby were approaching the end of their walk, and when they get on the private drive behind our house, Steven will somtimes let Shelby offleash to smell the roses. Usually, Shelby walks from house to house, sniffing around. However on this particular day, there was a visiting family hanging out in the private drive, and Shelby, who has great eagerness and love for people, especially kids, ran full speed towards the family. Steven shouted for her to come back, but she pretended not to understand.


The little boy was quite happy about seeing a dog that was his scale. The little girl, who looked like a reincarnated Shirley Temple, ran screaming in terror at the top of her lungs to hide behind her laughing mother.

I think she saw a different side of Shelby.

She's just misunderstood

Poor Shelby. She's just misunderstood.

Too funny!! I often wonder why kids run away screaming from a pug... I guess I never saw it from that perpective!

Hahaha, I laughed out loud at that one!

Here's a zoom on the picture so we can see the pre-edit, jubilant grin on her face:

Wow, Winnie! I think your Shelby's Yoda Costume from last Halloween is still #1, but this scary little pug face really had me laughing and screaming and I encourage you to keep sketching and photographing Miss Shelby!
