Hairy Maclary and Friends



Beloved to the children of New Zealand is "Hairy Maclary" - a scruffy pup who has lots of misadventures involving chasing cats, stealing sausages and winning the show. He is a black Skye terrier of the scruffiest kind. This postcard features him and a few of his friends. See if you can figure out which is which:
Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum,
Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony,
Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay,
Bottomly Potts covered in spots,
Hercules Morse as big as a horse ...
and Zackary Quack.

These delightful books are written by Lynley Dodd. At some point in the future I will draw the cats!

Hairy Maclary is one of Ben's favourite stories! Great picture of them all.
