Critter Cottage

Critter Cottage Creatures

Historic day!  After nine years of grooming my standard poodle, I decided to have her professionally groomed.  And while that was taking place, I was able to paint on the gorgeous grounds of the Critter Cottage.  Oh joy!  I'm much happier painting than grooming.

The grounds were filled with chickens, horses, a dozen pregnant sheep!!!, even an iguana (nasty, invasive creatures), an emu (large, flightless bird from Australia that resembles an ostrich), and peacocks that strutted their stuff.
