Lynn's Comments: I never thought I'd appreciate the ease of using email to communicate. I rarely write an actual letter these days, but when I do...I buy one of those expensive blank greeting cards. A real handwritten letter these days is a gift!
Lynn's Comments: I heard about this "trial" on CBC radio. I never tried it on my dog. I liked my towels too much!
Lynn's Comments: Without planning for the future of these characters, I was setting April up to be a veterinarian; something she became after the strip ended. Yes...they all lived happily ever after—even if it's just in my imagination.
Lynn's Comments: My daughter actually did this. Some strips were as easy as looking out the window.
Lynn's Comments: In order to do these strips with some confidence, I went to a breeder and asked if I could see some brand new puppies. They were kind enough to take me to see a new mom with her babies. I was shocked to see how tiny they were. How quickly we forget!
Lynn's Comments: In this drawing, since the characters are sitting and talking in the same spot, I could have copied one drawing and repeated it 4 times. The thing is...I wanted the audience to see into my world as if they were looking through the lens of a camera—and in a movie, that lens is rarely still.
Lynn's Comments: When an Old English Sheepdog gets covered in snow, he is something to see. Most of the snow finds its' way to the fur between his toes and it takes ages to pull it all out. I think my dog took more grooming time than my kids did!
Lynn's Comments: In a way, Elly's dilemma about not having gone to university was my mother's story. She always regretted not having had a university education, and by the time we were older and she had the time to do so, she thought it was too late.
