When I got home from Texas, amongst the mountain of mail waiting for me was a package from my friend Carole Pivarnik containing a copy of her new book Doggitude. It is a lovely book of watercolor portraits of real dog, each accompanied with an original haiku and a bio of the dog. The combination of elements really captures the  individual personalities of each dog in a very intimate and beautiful way.

Doggitude: What Dogs REALLY Think–In 17 Sassy Syllables

It’s an awesome book- full stop- but it’s made even awesomer by the fact that JMF’s Gnocchi is one of the 17 featured pups.

Isn’t his portrait gorgeous? I’ve seen Gnocchi with this exact look on his face a hundred times. Carole is madly talented.

To read Gnocchi’s haiku and bio you will have to order the book.¬†Believe me, you will be very happy that you did.
