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 passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
