Lackadaisy Canidae by tracyjb Lackadaisy Canidae by tracyjb
One of the most oft-asked questions I've received since starting Lackadaisy is "what would they look like as dogs?"
Finally, I got around to working out some answers (although I was tempted to just draw them all as wall-eyed pugs).  Most of this was done during a livestream where Patrons provided a lot of breed suggestions.  A fun time was had.

Lackadaisy is now on Patreon, with access to extra art, Q&A, livestreams, wallpapers, reward drawings and more.

It's cool to see the canine version of the characters, even though I got so use to the feline version. However, I can see the canine and feline version sharing the same universe.

The sound I just made probably woke all of my neighbors. I don't care. They can have my head, so long as I can keep the image of this in my mind. XD

Also how am I not following you here? I have to fix it.

You'd think related members would be at least the same breed - but nope!

What kind of cute dog do you have?

Our boy is an American Eskimo Dog (Standard size) and our gal is a mix of Australian Shepherd x English Setter :meow:

Ours is a chiweenie (one of the better looking ones, haha). She looks just like the Mitzi drawing except with a black snout, and the tail and features are EXACTLY the same!
Aww, your dogs sound so handsome and adorable :)

I feel like Rocky's smile is less intimidating as a dog and more fitting for his face? Because a dogs snout is longer so I guess they would all have larger smiles in general? They're all very cute!

Lovely but lemme point out two things:

They don't look anywhere close to their cat versions, to the point I barely recognized them until I saw Rocky (the only one that is a fair transformation, being maybe even better). Also wasn0t my plan to do so but they are incorrect biologicaly/anatomicaly (chow chow?? HA!).
Secondly... how did a chow chow grandma have a beagle nephew? mh.. Darwin much? I didnt knew all dogs could breed a different race in a single generation.

I got it pretty quick, so I think that is just a personal experience of not seeing the obvious visual queues, imo. I'm pretty sure her goal was to pair the characters up with their respective breed of dog based on personality, and not actual practicality.

I love em all! Zib reminds me of one of your old characters from like years ago, when I first heard of you, I think that was you :) If it was, your art was inspiring me a long long time ago, I think I even did a sketch of your fox character, fanart I guess it would be or was he a wolf, he was like a theif or a knight or something? I don't remember now, all I remember is that he was the love interest of the main female. I never posted it up anywhere cuz I didn't have access to a scanner or online art posting sites back then haha. Your art was one of many that helped me build my style actually now that I think about it! Anyway, seeing Zib drawn this way gives me nostalgia haha. Awesome work as usual. Well Zib and Rocky combined remind me of the character I am thinking of.

Fantastic work as usual, but I'm still used to seeing them as cats! Elsa still manages to look beautifully sad and sweet, and I think Serafine looks rather more intriguing with a dangerously thin snout.
(Oh my god Nina and Wick look exactly the same as their feline forms)
