Puffed Pig Snout and a Toozle, ink & watercolor 5×7 in

I am so glad to move on from this series finally! Lately I’ve been sketching lovely spring scenery, trees and flowers but before I post them, here are the last and the grossest of the dog treats. These two items were neither a treat to draw nor did my dog’s digestion appreciate them (to put it mildly!)

The Puffed Pig Snout is exactly that, a kind of weird half-face; really quite disturbing. Millie was quite happy to munch it right up, though she will also happily eat cat poo and grass, so that’s not saying much.

I labeled the Tooble incorrectly in the sketch as I’d lost the label and remembered wrong. It’s not a sheep esophagus, it’s a smoked beef trachea, cleverly renamed a “Tooble” for marketing purposes. I’m glad that they are finding ways of using all of the animal, but still…

I’ve completed my investigation of the weird new world of dog treats and we settled on Millie’s two favorite chew treats: Pizzle sticks and raw organic marrow bones.

Phew! Done! Now on to something completely different!

  1. Jana, I think you are spoiling Millie with all these dog treats. My dog has a couple of balls. We stopped giving her the pigs’ ears and all the other stuff. It seemed to upset her stomach. But she did love them. As I’m sure Millie does. More paintings of Millie, please.
