Dusty's World


Dusty's World

Hi everyone. This is Doug, Old Digger's son. I wanted to share something really cool with all of you, so here goes...

I recently came upon a web site called Hide-E-Hole Ferret Rescue. This no-kill ferret shelter is run by Barbara Carlson who has been personally doing rescue work with ferrets for at least 5 or 6 years. I saw that Barb was asking for donations to help support the shelter, but since I'm on unemployment I thought I would donate my talent instead.

I wrote Barb and offered to lend my talent to her endeavor and she was thrilled. We sent emails back and forth discussing what she would like to have and she mentioned it would be great to have a ferret comic. I have had experience doing comics so I drew up my first one-panel idea, which Barb loved.

This comic is a tribute to Dusty, who passed away on February 9, 2010. Dusty was my niece's ferret and he was quite the character. We have many fond memories of that little guy and now he will live on through my comics and continue to entertain people with his antics. The comic will be featured weekly on Barb's new site here.

I hope you enjoy Dusty's World as much as I enjoy drawing it and please let me know what you think in the comments.

I think it's great, I love all animals wild or domesticated and hate to see cruelty. I love your story and I will look up Barb's new site.

Take care.

Doug, That's a funny comic, and a great idea to help a rescue organisation with your talents. It's a great tribute to Dusty too.

Cheers

Very cool! And what a great tribute to Dusty. I love all of our fur babies. This year a percentage of the Vintage Nest profits will go to help the animal shelter in my area.
