Pow-Pow is 22 years old and has been for thousands of years.
He is actually a spirit who materializes at sunrise every day and disappears at sunset, often by dancing in and out of a cloud of mist.
He can pop in and out of existence at any time.
He never removes his earbuds. Never. They might as well be attached to his ears.
He always has chalk dust on his paws. It can’t be washed off. Don’t worry, it’s non-toxic.
He never speaks. Instead, he communicates by magically changing the text on his shirt. He may make the usual dog noises such as barking, whimpering, and growling, though.
He’s a “live for the moment” kind of dog. He doesn’t think about tomorrow, nor can he remember yesterday. He starts the day with a clean slate, and approaches it as if it’s going to be the best day ever.
Some say he has the personality (and the comic reality-bending abilities) of a 30s inkblot cartoon character.
He treats just about everyone he meets as if they were a long-time friend, because he doesn’t remember whether they really are or not.
He’s friendly, but can also be skittish, and will run away if he feels uncomfortable or threatened.
He’s an excellent escape artist. He can get lost in a crowd or run around a corner and completely vanish.
He’s been said to be able to draw things into existence, but this hasn’t been proven.
A few people think he might be an avatar of Shiva, the Hindu god of creation and destruction. One person actually asked him if he was. In response, Pow-Pow twirled around, stuck out his tongue, and his shirt read, “You’re Silly!”
My annual Draw Cerberus Day is coming this Friday!
It was supposed to be yesterday, but I didn’t have the ad done in time. So now you have more time to get ready, because if you’re like me, you hate having these things dropped on you at the last minute!
A comprehensive reference sheet for my synthetic cougar.
It’s all gel under that fur. The gel is usually deep purple, but at extreme temperatures it can shift towards red or blue. This particular trait was partly inspired by the Antarctic octopus, which has actual blue blood that enables it to survive the extreme cold.
