Jean Cotton, artist, illustrator, and teacher poses with her famous dog Squiggy. Jean got Squiggy at a shelter where she volunteers. She brought him to her kids art classes and with all the good attention she got, Jean decided to enter Squiggy in the Ugly Dog Contest held in CA last year. Squiggy did not win, but got a contract to be the featured star on a line of cards called "SQUIGGY One Ugly Dog" by RSVP . Of course Squiggy is not really ugly just look at these really cool cards above. Ask for them at your local card store.
