Dogs by Wesley Dennis

I  love these old dog illustrations by Wesley Dennis from ‘Wagging Tails’ a book  by Marguerite Henry published in 1955. The way Dennis expresses the emotions on the faces of the dogs is absolutely captivating.  When you see the smile on the dog as he smells a bone, you’ll see what I mean!

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
