Dog Hotel Paintings – Day 1

10 Mar

Bongo behind barsDo you believe it?

I got all excited when my person told me to get in the car this morning.

I should have suspected something when I saw the suitcases.

I was hoping to end up somewhere adventurous and fun – but here I am at the dog hotel.

And I can’t even tell you about my adventures here, because if my person finds out that I have fun sometimes she might make me stay longer.


And I don’t like it here that much.

So here’s the deal.

A couple weeks ago my person went to a camera meeting and they had a drawing for some photo programs.

And my person won!

She won a program called Snap Art that makes photos look like paintings or drawings.

So you get to see me in art all week.

It looks like my person spent hours with her brushes, but she really only spent a few minutes on the computer.

So here’s the first one.

This is me in impasto (a technique where the paint is laid on thickly).

    Awww, that’s nice, Bongo… well, not the Dog Hotel bit but being a model [or should I say: a super model] for your person! Can’t wait to see her ‘watercolors’!!! 🙂

      Marina, she still won’t watercolor me for real. She says she hasn’t practiced dogs enough – but I never see her practicing.

    I hope you have good time at the doggy hotel Bongo, and I promise I won’t tell your human that you did. That painting thing looks pretty cool. At least we’ll get to see your handsome face this week.

      Thanks FireBonnet. It’s kind of cool seeing some of my friends here. But thanks so much for not telling my person.

    That may be you “impasto” but you’re probably ‘impatient” for her to get home & get you out of that dog hotel. Diane calls those places “spas” – as if that’s going to make me happy…Lola

      Lola, they can’t be “spas” unless they give us lots of doggie massages and a pool to swim in.

    We won’t tell sweet Bongo. Have all the fun you can. That is a cool painting your person did of you on the computer. Congratulations to your person on winning the program. Hugs and nose kisses

    Painterly pup. Looking forward to more stylistic portraits and of course, you are the perfect model to inspire creativity. (What a lucky charmer!)

      Thanks Karen. Maybe I should take up a new career as a model.

    Dog Hotel! Ugh! I hope there are enough cuddles and cookies to last you. Meanwhile, we’ll enjoy the art.

    Love and licks,

    Just think how lucky the people at the dog hotel are to have you there for a while. Bet they miss you bunches when you go home. Like the painting.

      Thanks Patricia. I guess I do make it special to the people at the dog hotel.

      Thanks Dogdaz. I think I might need to take up a new modeling career.

    Wow! Very interesting! That picture is as if it was painted!! Did your person do this on computer?! Amazing! I hope we could see more pictures like this one soon! 🙂

      Thanks Kevin. Yes, my person has a special computer program that makes pictures look like paintings.

    Poor guy! My dog Magic hates the car, but loves to “Go” most places. When we ask him if he wants to “Go in the car,” he has a tendency to stop listening after the word “Go” and then he’s extremely excited until we load him into the back seat.

      Brantley, I like to go. I just wish it was always going someplace like swimming.
