A HUGE surprise...I'm a MUSE!

So the other day I was just lounging around in my sun puddle, minding my own beeswax, when the DOORBELL RANG! The mail truck was pulling away and there was this BIG BOX on our porch!

The return address said "Alabama" but there must be an Alabama, Italy because the sticker said "Frah-GEE-lay"! ( cracks herself up).

WHAT in the world could this be? Is it a MAJOR AWARD???

It must be very special and important because it's SIGNED with someone's autograph!


It's ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you BELIEVE this?? It was painted by Lauren (Kitty and Coco's Mom!) and her sweet note said that Salinger just HAD to be painted!!!! OMG!!!! I'm a MUSE!!!!

We can't get over how she totally captured says right down to the turdley look in my eyes!

Mom helped me put my tie on so I could be exact twins with my portrait!

Thank you SO much for this masterpiece, Lauren, Kitty and Coco!!!!! We absolutely love it and are so proud to own one of your pieces!!!

Lauren is hoping to have her Etsy shop open very soon...but in the meantime, she can paint any of you too!!! Just contact her at laurencmitchell(at) to discuss details!!!!

I can't stop looking at this!!! It's like looking in the MIRROR without having to deal with an actual HAT on my head (NOOOOOOOOO HAT!)

Thank you SO much Lauren, Kitty and Coco! You made our week!!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

S-Dog, she totally captured your essence! You's so lucky to have such a talented artist use you as her muse.

Try not to get too caught ups staring at yourself!

That is totally KWULE!!

Kitty+Coco said...

Wowsers! You know how to make my momma feel good! You guys have been so sweet about the painting. I even got to snoopervise while she was painting by sitting in her lap and telling her to make it slightly more turdley here and there.
Heard mom saying there will be a "Pug Nativity" theme for Christmas. Oh brother.

Hey Salinger! I love the painting! It's totally you and I can't wait to see where your peeps hang it.

You need a top hat to go along with your tie and maybe even a cane!
