Animal Wednesday - The complete Miss Em and the Pink spotted Puppy

Miss Em had two beautiful black dogs named Samson and Daisy.
(I bet you thought the girl dog would be Delilah)

One special day, Daisy had a litter of 7 puppies - 6 were all black haired but one had lovely pink polka dots mixed sprinkled all over her body. Miss Em was ecstatic to see all the lovely little pups

She knew that she couldn't..and shouldn't - keep all the pups, so she made a sign and stood out in the town waiting to meet the wonderful people who would love the pups.

The first two pups - named Rita and Irving, were adopted by a could who loved to play golf. Samson went along to train the pups how to retrieve the little white balls, and drop them right into the nice hole.
The second set of pups, named Marty and Honey, moved to Florida - where they met strange animals when they were taking their daily walks. Ooh, stay away from that green lizard pups!
The third set of pups, named Rozzy and Joseph, were adopted by a couple who sang with the city opera and took the pups to listen to rehearsal all the time. Joseph loved to howl along with his new papa and was very attentive to the music. Rozzy hid her head at the sour notes.

But no one wanted the pink polka dotted puppy and secretly Miss Em was very happy about that. She loved to look at her special pup, and took her out for walks every day on a special leash. Polky's spots glistened in the sun like little rainbows and made Miss Em happy everytime she saw them.
Polky grew up to be a big beautiful dog, and Miss Em loved her to pieces. And they both lived happily ever after.
The End

Such a wonderful story. Me thinks you should write children's books. How fun would that be? I can't believe you've only been drawing a couple of years, did I read that right? You're very good.
