In the drawing I thanked God for small dogs, but maybe that makes it sound like dogs are wonderful because they save humans from danger, when actually I wouldn’t think this event was a happy one if Zoey had died. I mean, I am not convinced that a dog’s life should necessarily be worth less than a human’s. Does that make sense? I have been drinking a little white wine. Oh, and if you follow the link above and watch the news story, let me know if you think it’s a “good ending” that grandpa killed the snake.
These wee 2″ square fridge magnets debuted at Word Under the Street 2006 and sold fast. The drawings were originally published in Geist magazine No. 58. Want some? They are $2 each and $10 for a set of 6. If you are in the Vancouver area I can get them to you. If not, email me and we will work it out.
