Victor Verb

Here is another of the characters from the Grammar Town project I mentioned before.

He is Victor Verb - the King of Grammar Town. (think him and Nancy Noun may have a bit of a 'thing' going.)

He was a digital creation. Each character was created differently, to show the writer some different possibilities for medium and style.

The test results are in!

Our beloved Cookie Baxter has always been a bit of a mystery, when it comes to knowing what breed she is. Every time we leave the house, someone asks me - and I usually answer with, "well, my best guess would be..." And the answer usually involves something about poodles and terriers, and reasons why she wasn't a chihuahua etc.

Well - I finally went head and got her DNA checked. I got tests for both Cookie and Heidi (results not back yet) and was really quite surprised to find out that she is, in fact, at least 50% chihuahua, with some tibetan spaniel and canaan dog thrown in! So the chihuahua part does explain the size (a healthy 5 lbs) and maybe the tibetan bit explains her fantastic nature and character, and the fact that she doesn't act like a chihuahua at all.

So, last night when I went to the dog park and was asked the usual questions, I actually had an answer! It will take some getting used to though, actually knowing what she is.

I'll post Heidi's results, when they are in.
