"M U R D E R !"
Before you get all panicky, take a deep breath and remember the #1 rule in Wibbley World - "Nothing bad ever happens," so we should be safe. Hey, I just noticed that looks just like my house he's leaving - I don't think I like that!
I painted this ACEO for the May Nibblefest contest, "The Secret Life of Toys."

In fact, if Sainesbury had gone to medical school, I'd venture to say that these two were the Jekyll and Hyde of Dogdom. In case you've forgotten Mr. Wiggles, here's a recent pic:
