For the 'brown ochre' colour collective I decided to go with a stick. When it comes to dogs, that colour could easily relate to poop, but I'm keeping it classy. ^.~
And I added another little friend - this time it's a New Holland Honeyeater. Our garden is full of them. Originally it was going to be a willy wagtail, but I liked the pop of yellow.
Here's my original sketch, alongside the photo I used as inspiration:
