You're probably familiar with this particular sentient fluffball of joy, more commonly known as the Pomeranian:

Since ancient times, probably, Pomeranians have long fascinated the world with their incomprehensibly fuzzy visages. But seeing and appreciating Pomeranians is very different from being able to draw one from the mind's eye — so naturally, on a quiet weekday, I asked my coworkers to draw me their best Pomeranian.

Here's how they did:

The intern at the next desk over: "Do Pomeranians have ears?"

My boss: "Pomeranians have fluffy fur, like lions, right?"

New hire #1: "I haven't seen many Pomeranians..."

New hire #2: "Where do its legs go?"

The deskmate taking drawing lessons: "Wait, how do I make it look more doglike?"

My other manager:

The office cat person: "This isn't my usual area of expertise..."

Our illustrator: "I've never really seen a Pomeranian before."

The former Pomeranian owner: "Mine was a girl named Maro, but she had the face of a Japanese nobleman."

(This one generated an extra degree of interest.)

"Is this a character from a scary childen's book?"

When everyone was done, we took it to a vote...

And the winner was...our office cat person!

So, in conclusion, Pomeranians are hella hard to draw...

But let's be honest — any time and creative energies spent on these little fluffernuggets is always worth the while.
