Not to be Trusted

“I’m suspicious of people who don’t like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn’t like a person.”

Thanks Bill Murray.  Or Mark Twain.  Or whoever said this originally.  It doesn’t say much for my character.

Dogs have a funny reaction to me.  Some absolutely love me, some whimper and cry as if I’m Darth Vader.  I can’t figure this out.  I’m really a very small, harmless looking woman.

I remember being terrified of dogs when I was a small child.  I can’t figure that out either.  I was never hurt by one, that I know of.  I got along fine with my aunt’s German Shepherds, but other than that…illogical fear.  Maybe I still give off a negative vibe in relation to dogs.

I start my venture into the world  of dog drawing with a picture of a German Shepherd, the first dog breed I learned to trust.
