Good Dog Art: A Review

No, I'm not speaking about HM's paintings this time.

Good Dog Art
showcases the beautiful work of Nancy Schutt. Her tag: every dog deserves good art! It's true! HM shares that sentiment with Nancy!

Leap!

Nancy creates wonderful illustrative pieces that look like they've been pulled from a story book. An adventure just waiting to be told.

Reach For It

Nancy says of her subject matter...

"For an artist, dogs provide an endless supply of subject matter. They tell stories. They are beautiful, comical, intelligent, and worthy of admiration- worthy of a tribute. And they have no ego involvement in the end product.

I love dogs because they have a joyful countenance, they don't hold grudges, and are shameless about their tastes and preferences. If we don't interfere, they feel good about themselves all the time."

For an original painting, her prices start at $450. She also offers some of her work as Giclee prints on canvas. They start at $255, with 10% of all proceeds going towards these dog charities:

Now buying original art is an investment, for those pups who aren't ready for that kind of committment, Nancy offers a variety of products in which to enjoy Good Dog Art!

UPDATE: on Stolen Toy Manchester Terriers

Hey every pup. Just received an update from Therese's friend:

The police think that the burglary was a cover and that the dogs were the target. A neighbor of Therese saw, the day of the break in, a white truck and a red car in her drive way. Therese found the instrument that was used to break into her home. It was in a garbage bag behind her shed.

As she is desperate to find her dogs, she even called a ''sight seer'' to know where she dogs are!

Let keep our eyes open!

She told me to tell you all a BIG thank you for all your help, that she don't know what see would had done without all your help!!

Rain, Thunderboomies and Swimming Lessons!


Sorry for not posting sooner. HM has been really busy with work, side projects and her Pop Dog paintings!

What an eventful weekend! It's been awful downpour rain, with lightening and thunderboomies! (but I'm not scared!)

annnnndddd..

I went swimming today!! HM found a place downtown that gives indoor swimming lessons for dogs!! It's called Fit Dogs. They have a 6 ft. x 15 ft. saltwater pool for doggies and humans to practice swimming!!!



I didn't really like it at first..and kept looking for a quick exit to escape...but HM really wants me to be comfortable in the water, as both pawrents like to swim..and go camping, and my fur-cousin Daisy has a pool in her backyard..so for safety too.

I was getting more comfortable, the swim instructor was really nice and kept feeding me treats after I did a lap around the pool! Then our lesson was over. I'm going back next weekend *gulp* for another session. This time it will be just HM and me!!

Hope you all had good weekends!

Pawesome Pup Award - Spencer!!


I'd like to blog about a pawesome pup...one I'd like to give an award to!! Spencer. He's a cool California Golden, with a chilled lifestyle and a love for tennis balls.

What makes him pawesome?? Well, he and his humans work with Golden Retreiver Rescue in their city, and have taken in some fosters to help find fur-ever homes for them. They now have two adorable puppies: Ben and Jerry. They are pretty sick, and need a lot of care to get them healthy and ready for their fur-ever homes..but Spencer is up to the task!

Please take a moment to read their story, and visit Spencer's blog.

Paws up to you buddy!!!

Woofstock - Wrap-up

There were dark clouds and early rain and we were worried Woofstock would be a washout! BUT no rain for the rest of the day!! But IT WAS HOT!!

Since we weren't sure what the weather would be like..we went early to avoid any chance of rain..and after being there for a few hours...all the pups (Simba, Denali, and Starr) including our human moms were hot, tired and ready to leave the INSANE crowds. So I didn't stay for the Mr. Canine Canada competition. :o(

Mr. Canine Canada? Maybe next year.


Denali and Starr

That's ok..we got some pawesome treats, met LOTS of dogs and had a good time!



We saw LOTS of Boston Terriers, Great Danes, Min Pins, Labs and Chihuahuas!!

Guess how many Manchesters I saw??!! 2!!! BOL and one was my pal Rocco!! His humans had a booth at Woofstock, selling their pawesome hand-sculpted coats and collars!! (Denali and I got a MODRuff collar today!! They are pawesome!!!!)

Check out Rocco on the runway in the dog fashion show, showing off his MOD Ruff coat!

Check out some random pics from our busy day!

We saw a lemur!!

Super tired..going to sleep for the rest of the day!!

HM is back and I got some great loot!!

So, I survived alone with HD...it wasn't so bad..he took me to the park, and we hung out and watched TV a lot. He even let me sleep in the bed with him in the mornings!

I was sooo happy when HM came home though!! What did I get?

A cool New York Loofa dog that looks like the statue of Liberty. That was from my pals Gibbon and Mia who my mom visited in NYC.

HM and Molly's human Jennifer with Gibbon and Mia

I also got a cool treat ball from Molly's human who was also in NYC for the weekend fun.

All the Human mums in front of Trixie and Peanut

HM went to Trixie and Peanut in lower Manhattan and brought home a new Planet Dog toy, some FURBULOUS treats (sweet potato wrapped in bacon!!! WOWEE)

So it was a great trip for me! er...for her..BOL!

Next time though, I really want to go, so I can have some fun play time with Gibbon and Mia too!!
