Blog Feature: Usual Muttwits

Some readers may recall a blog started by one of my oldest friends, Julian. It was full of amusing stories about the doggy residents of an imaginary town, and their feline arch-enemy. Well that blog has been revamped, and now has great new illustrations by Zozo alongside the amusing stories.

Each character now has their own feature too, with the drawings summing them up perfectly.

Whether lamenting about the lack of available food, or investigating new canine arrivals, the antics of the Muttwits gang reads like a wonderful soap opera of the activities of all the pets in the town of Westley Piddle. If you own a dog, have ever owned one, or just love them, I am sure you will find this blog a delight. There is also a book in the works.

So check out this new blog, treat yourself to some great illustrations, and a good laugh at the stories. Perfect Lockdown relief!

  1. Dear Pete, thank you so much for shining a bright lamp bulb onto the Muttwits site. if any of your followers have a muttwit of their own they are most welcome to subscribe and send us the photo + name so we can post him on the ‘Usual Muttwits Most Wanted’ page (coming very shortly). Some of them we might even turn into real muttwit characters. Cheers Zozo&Jools (Zeynep and Julian) 🐢🐾

    1. Dear Jack,
      Zeynep and me (that’s Zozo and Jools) and all the muttwits 🐾 really appreciate your help. Every little sniff helps as they say. You got any mutts of your own and we are more than happy to post them up and share them with the world…erh, well, with our five followers anyways! πŸ™„πŸ˜‰ Julian

    1. I totally agree Jennie. The passing of my German Shepherd (of 12 years) last year inspired me to get this site together with Zeynep. Yes, it is about loads of different muttwits – but deep down it is a love song to my darling companion Boomer. 🐾

        1. Thank you so much – when you check out the site next time you please look for Boomer on the A-Z of Muttwits Snoutz. He’s gonna be getting up to his usual tricks and into big trouble πŸ˜‰πŸΎ

  2. bookmarked the link to dive into for reading – reminded me of a picture described to me by my dad – long ago – he said, “everyone seems to know about the painting of dogs playing cards/poker, but there was another one done by that artist that had dogs in the setting of the local watering hole (bar/pub) and that one, though I only saw it once, was my favorite one” – – LOL

    1. TamrahJo, you are so right. πŸ˜ƒ I know the picture and it was always in the back of my mind when we first started conceiving the muttwits site. Thanks for that? Btw, if you have a muttwit of your own, send us the photo and we’ll post him on the Usual Muttwits Most Wanted page🐾

    1. Erh, that’s thanks to Pete kicking me up my furry butt and fast tracking that saucy muttwit into Westley Piddle. Working on it now…

      Thing is, there are so many dogs (30 so far) who are part of the stories (trot-on parts!), and the number is just gonna keep on growing and growing. Phew, what a pack! πŸ˜€πŸΎ

    1. Thank you Robbie, Zeynep (Zozo) is amazingly talented and I was so lucky to meet her. No only does she love animals (see her page where she discusses actively supporting various animal shelters in Turkey) but she even gets my questionable humor!! 🀭🐾

    1. David, it would need to be titled: Muttney on the Bountylick (as anything to do with water is suffixed ‘lick’). Bu thanks so much for the idea – the muttwits are gonna steal it nows 🐾🐾🐾

        1. No Shar-Pei…yet, but there is a very sassy Pomeranian called Foxy trotting onto the scene in the not too distant future. You will find her on the site under Mutt-Shots.
