Ever notice how when you leave your dog in the car to run into the store (probably to buy a 60lb bag of dog food) you return to find your dog sitting in the driver's seat? And then you're at home, say working on the computer, and you hear this "wuh, wuh, wuh, wuhoof" (sound of car starting) coming from your napping dogs lips, and their tail is sorta twitching or wagging, and their legs are moving (clutching and shifting). I think they're dreaming about driving that car.

Fur Should Fly Or you can Google "CR Townsend prints". There are a handful of images released through Image Conscious. The royalties earned from these sales are donated to my local rescue. And occasionally there are prints for sale on this site to raise funds for animal rescue and low cost spay/neuter.
