It’s an Arf Arf!

This was one of the designs from my art challenge a week ago. Baby seals are totally cute. You can’t resist them! Anyway, when I was drawing this, I kept thinking of my childhood and baby seals.

My brother who is younger than me, really liked seals and when he was a kid, he called them ‘arf arfs’ based on the sound seals make. It kind of stuck around with the kids and we started referring to them as arf arfs for years. Well, old habits die hard. I still automatically think ‘arf arf’ almost at the same time that I think ‘seal’. Sometimes, I’ve been with friends and let it slip – ‘oh look at the arf arf!’ and then they look at me and say ‘a WHAT?’. I think they are getting used to me and my weird names for things. You should ask me about velvet butt spiders and fuzz weeds!
