The Dog at The Dairy.

Today after reading about the plight of the small-scale dairy farmer I witnessed a dog and was hit by inspiration so sat down with a cuppa and wrote a poem about a dog that owns a small dairy...
Would you like a cup of tea?
A small brown dog did say to me,
Yes I would, have you milk?
Gushing forth as smooth as silk?

Come with me, to my dairy,
My herd of cows, belted and hairy,
The dog whipped out a stool and bucket,
And with her mouth on udder sucked it.

She spat the milk into the vessell,
So I fetched from stove an old red kettle,
Tea bags came from a small tin pot,
Into cups went the water nice and hot.

Ambrosia squeezed from the cows papoose,
Turned hot brown water into heavenly juice,
Nothing like a cup of tea,
That small brown dog did say to me.

Camping cups.

I only have about 3 sets of enamel mugs left now and when they're gone they're gone! £12 each or £20 for the pair.
Also I am selling my last piece of papier mache taxidermy for a discounted price as we are moving house soon and I need the space. He's life size and pretty solid but because of his size will only travel to mainland UK I'm afraid. Both mugs and stag available here.

I rarely find time to post anything here these days so have left my blog to go relatively derelict. As an apology here is an illustration I did about 3 years ago of some characters that I watched whilst sitting on Totnes high-street. I've probably shared this in the past, I can't remember, so as a second apology there is a picture of a tree. If the fact that you've already seen that on my instagram feed causes you to become peeved then you can frick off you ungrateful sod.
