The Blissful Dog | Free Dog Coloring Book


Were you one of those kids whose idea of utter nirvana was a brand new box of the 64 Crayola Crayons with that way cool sharpener in the back? The one that had silver and gold...I can still smell that waxy perfection!

Have you noticed the boom in coloring books for adults? There is a correlation between these two, of course.Not only does coloring instantly transport us back to a time in our lives that was simpler and easier, but it also offers several other benefits.

Coloring satisfies so many inner yearnings: we get to be creative, we get to sloooowww down and enjoy the moment, plus coloring occupies enough of our minds to slow the chatter, yet not add more stress to an overloaded mind. 


In the 1880s the McLoughlin Brothers produced The Little Folks' Painting Book with Kate Greenway. This book is widely accepted as the FIRST coloring book. The McLoughlin Brothers published coloring books until the 1920s when they were purchased by Milton Bradley.

Even though crayons had been invented these early coloring books were meant to be painted in, rather than colored. Beginning in the 1930s they were offered for both painting and coloring.


Adult coloring books were first marketed in the early 1970s, from Dover Publications. Since 2010 there has been a huge demand for adult coloring books in all formats; good old paper and crayons, digital and hybrids of both.

Surviving Natural Disasters With Our Pets as Calmly As Possible

Every time we glance at the news it seems there is another weather-related emergency. From fires to droughts to recent hurricanes, it seems it never ends. As we watch people on video abandon their homes with their dogs clutched in their arms, most of us think, “What would I do?”

Philosophical Poo Ponderings | The Solipsistic Dog

Ah, the philosophy of the Solipsistic dog can be debated for hours, as Solipsistic followers are ever-so prone to do. It is one of those "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" type mindsets.
