Flashback Friday – Beastie Sketches

Hello everyone! I've something a little different for you this Flashback Friday - a retrospective of Beastie sketches, or "Sketch-rospective", if you will!

... Or, as first floated in Tuesday's post, it's a Pet-rospective! Beasties love their pets, and at the suggestion of regular reader Queen Bee, I thought it was high time we revisited some of those fuzzy companions from previous commissions.
