The Dancing Paint Brush

Hi my friends,
Last night in my sleep, I was awaken by something twinkling in the grass.
I thought a star had fallen from the sky!
It certainly twinkled just like a star.
I could hardly sleep. I kept peeking out the window.
I wanted the sun to hurry and come up, so I could go outside and check it out.
As soon as the birds started chirping, I ran outside and searched in the dewy grass. There it was!
It was another magic paintbrush, almost like the ones my mama had in the house.
I found it in the very same yard where the bubbles touched my nose
I found it in the very same yard where the butterfly landed on my tail.
And this was the very same yard where Gabby, my little deer friend and I played.

I played with it for awhile. I tried to paint a happy day for you my friends!
Then I ran into the house and showed it to mama.
(This is the mama Paulette, not the other mommy, who's lap I sit on when I write to you.)
She craddled the paint brush in her hands, so gently. I have seen her do this before.
I knew what was going to happen next. I sat excitedly by her feet. My tail wagged.
I have waited for a day like this, for such a long time. A day my mama's hands would touch the paper,,,,,,,
She looked down at me for a moment. Then suddenly, the brush touched the paper, and the magic began.

I sat and watched as her hands moved across the paper.
I watched the paintbrush dance
One minute there was a tail
Next minute there was a face
One minute there was a mouth and eyes
All of a sudden, there I was on this paper! Look!
I am so glad I found this magic paint brush!
There is all kinds of magic for us all to find. Will you find it?
We must believe!
It is out there, I know.
I look everyday.
And tonight when I close my eyes to sleep, I will wish upon the stars, that you find some magic and miracles. It will happen!
Nitey nite my friends

Oh Tweedles, that made me so happy. I was almost ready to give up on the magic, but I will keep searching now. Thank you. I love the picture of you, it looks just like you! My big sister is an artist and has done some pictures of me, my Mom posts her art sometimes on her other blogs. Ok I am going to sleep now and try real hard to dream of the magic. I hope to see you soon Tweedles, my friend. Time to dream of Tweedles and magic and bubbles and zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Wow, Tweedles, your mama Paulette is very talented. We wish we had a mom who could do one of those for us. It is just beautiful.

And the only brush we can ever find here is the dreaded brush to use on our furs - Mom loves to steal our coats.

Happy weekend, the OP Pack

Stubby said...

Hi Tweedles! Your mama is so talented! That painting looks just like you. I love it!

I searched and searched my yard for paintbrushes but I didn't find any. I did find lots of bees buzzing all around Mom's flowers. They are such good friends - they pollinate everything. They told me to say hi to you from them.

Stubby xoxo

Jan Mader said...

Wow Tweedles, your mom can paint and write too? I just left my blog and read what you left's totally awesome. Your mom can paint with words as well as she paints with paint. What a talented family you have. When I got back to my blog I KNEW one of the comments would be from you. I wasn't disappointed. You are one sweet little puggie girl.
