Waggiest Tails Launch: Films!

February 15, 2018

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…

Here’s Roger doing ‘Dancing Friends’ by Charlie The Chihuahua!

…and here’s Charlie doing his thing:

Brian did Olive and Flo’s autobiographical poem ‘Security Dogs’, with a Cajon groove:
