It was the launch of ‘The Waggiest Tails’ last Saturday. It’s a lovely book of poems written by dogs. Poets Brian Moses and Roger Stevens gave the dogs a helping hand in writing the poems and I illustrated. The launch took place at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare and much fun was had by all- especially my dog Dixie as it was her birthday and she thought it was a big party for her.
I made some films of the performances. I adapted my song ‘What Would You Do if A Bear Was Chasing You’ for the occasion. I realised the names of dog breeds are often poetry in themselves…
