The Real Time Canine II

After spending 2 years writing the Real Time Canine, the adventure continues with The Real Time Canine II. Read along as I look for just the right puppy to continue the experience. After false starts with Tim and Jed, I am currently training young Tam, and Spot, which are both off to a strong start. Please visit the RTC II to read about training sessions as they occur.

Draw the Dog

Hit refresh to animate the drawing

Jim and Bruce are in the very early stages of launching a website called Draw the Dog, where they will post one new dog cartoon each day. These cartoons are a bit unique, because they draw themselves. "Alpha Dog" above is an example of what to expect. Most of the cartoons will be based on a dog submitted by its owners. They are looking for stories about real dogs and their real antics. If you wish, they will acknowledge your dog next to the cartoon. Jim and Bruce would especially like to include cartoons about Border Collies in the early group, (they just like them.) In case you are interested, you can visit their site and send them your favorite story about something amusing, remarkable or just plain silly your dog has done, and maybe later find an adorable, animated characterature on their site.

Jim George draws each cartoon. He is an ex-Disney animator who has created many characters for movies and TV. He's remarkably talented. It's not often you get to have your dog made famous by an artist from the movies. They're racing to get the site ready, and will really appreciate anything you care to send that will help inspire Jim. This is what I learned about Jim on the website:

"Draw the Dog is drawn by Jim George, one of your typical ex-Disney animators who lives near the beach in Venice and once spent years animating in a cabin in the woods and who has been creating characters for film and TV and who has been a director and book author and who also has a counseling practice and who really likes animals and people, too. "

Jim has a few other talents as well, and besides being an over-the-top cartoonist, he is hot. No, not hot...He is HOT.

Check him out in this vid where he is promoting another endeavor and looking damn fine doing it.

Not only am I sending him a few anecdotes about my dogs for Draw the Dog, but I'll be including my number just in case.
