I could not resist painting these dogs ... Tosca is ours, Butler and Chou are best friends. Other characters live too far away to play together. My mother loved birds and taught me the names of the little ones that nested in the bar at the top of our swingset. I remember them being some kind of sparrow. Ed has taught me about recognizing birds by the habitat where they live and by their songs without being able to see them.
