This Dog’s Life with Ira G

June 03, 2010, 12:53 pm  Posted by Craft Your Life Team

From Asheville, North Carolina, it’s This Dog’s Life. I’m Ira G. Each week, of course, I pick a theme and present a story in four panels.

Today on our program: Looking Back. How do you overcome a rough start in life? Sometimes it feels like the deck is stacked; like the universe is almost conspiring against you. And then it gives you chicken…and love. Stay tuned.

    Kathleen McCafferty says:

    Ira promises to work on his drawing skills — and his handwriting too. :)

    Dee says:

    I don't get the chicken part. oh i love this project though. but i don't get how chicken saved him. maybe i need a 5th panel? and Sahara would say, if she said things, “how can I get a doghawk?”

      Kathleen McCafferty says:

      You're right, Dee. It does seem kind of random. But it's true! There's a lot unsaid between the panels. When I “chose” Ira he was in really bad shape. So I fed him chicken. And he recovered!

        Dee says:

        Oh pft. okay. that makes sense. i'm really looking forward to meeting him and his doghawk.

          Kathleen McCafferty says:

          He's looking forward to meeting you too, and pining for the day he gets to meet Sahi. Someday. He also thinks she's too pretty for a 'hawk.

    Savannah says:

    This is so great Kathleen! I can't wait to see what comes next!

      Thanks, Savannah! :)
