Art Show for Dogs

Bongo Watching an ArtistToday I found more of those people on my trails with the long things and the square things. You know, those paint brush things and canvases. My person says the people are artists with the Sedona Plein Air Festival and they’re in town all week.

Well this morning my person left me home and went to see all the artists painting at the Sedona Heritage Museum. She said it was a show for people, not dogs. I think she’s wrong and she should have taken me.

But three of those artists are pretty special because they came to my trails to do a show just for us dogs. They let my person hang around and watch, but I don’t think she would have been allowed if it wasn’t for me being there too.

I made two new dog friends and we got our own special show.

I’m not sure though if my new friends got tired, or they liked the lady artists better, or they just found the smells on the ground to be better than the art show.

I’m going for the smells. Maybe those artists could throw a little jackrabbit scent into their paintings.

Foot Washing

Scratchy getting his feet washed.Scratchy really got in trouble. I like it when it’s him and not me. It doesn’t happen very often, but it did this time.

My person has been really busy doing watercolor painting the last few days. She says that’s what her family is getting for Christmas. I wonder if she’ll give me a painting. I really like the paper and my person won’t ever leave her paintings where I can get to them. Just because I chewed up a painting my younger person did once – but that’s another story. I’m talking about Scratchy and how he got in trouble.

My person has a nice, wide counter between her kitchen and living room and she paints on that. Scratchy likes to get on that counter, even though he’s not supposed to. Well, my person had all her painting stuff out including a tray with wet paint in it. Yeah, you guessed it. Scratchy stepped right into that wet paint. My person grabbed Scratchy right away before he could step on anything else with those painty paws and took him over to the sink and washed him off.

Scratchy didn’t like it one little bit. Me, I was off in the corner snickering. About time it was you and not me, Scratchy.
