Illustration Friday - Match #2

I have a rule: never to post twice for a same subject of Illustration Friday, but something happened and made me change my mind. Today I was walking my dog (Souflè, a french bulldog) on the street and an old lady stopped me to talk(that kind of dog's owner chat, if you know what I mean). After complimmenting me about his beauty and nice manners she said: "Look how he matches your clothes!". I haven't noticed yet, but she was right. We were really a perfect match: the dog is all white with a black mascara, some dots and stripes; and I was wearing a black and white Adidas jacket and big sunglasses, black too. With such a coincidence I've decided to make an exception and post again. Hope you don't mind.

Eu tenho como regra não fazer duas postagens para um mesmo tema do Illustration Friday, mas aconteceu algo que me fez mudar de idéia. Hoje estava passeando com meu cachorro (Suflê, um bulldog francês) na rua e uma senhora me parou para conversar (aquela conversa de donos de cachorro, quem tem sabe do que eu estou falando). Depois de elogiar a beleza e simpatia do cão ela fez o seguinte comentário: "Olha só como ele combina com a sua roupa!". Eu não havia reparado, mas ela estava certa. Nós estávamos combinando: ele todo branco, com sua máscara preta, algumas pintas e listras; e eu de agasalho Adidas preto e branco e grandes óculos escuros, também pretos. Diante desta coincidência, resolvi abrir uma exceção e postar novamente. Espero que não se importem.
