It's hard to know just what it is that certain artists have that makes you so happy in the presence of their work. Maybe it is just me but the simple delight, the verge of a chuckle that Morag's dogs bring me can lift the dourest day and fill my heart with fun. Maybe it's the wit, the glorious crazed unconventionality of them, underpinned by a consummate skill and a pleasing off beat genius, that does it.
You can learn to love them and they are much more hygienic and cheaper to run than a regular dog.
