One Lump or Two?


Many of you know I'm a self-professed Cat Person. However that doesn't exclude me from having Dachshund daydreams :) I am completely enamored with the "hot dog" dog.
I just came across Picasso & Lump: A Dachshund's Odyssey. Okay, here we've got one of my favorite Artists and favorite dog: I MUST get this book!

Another one of my dear, favorite painters, Pierre Bonnard also had a Dax. "Quelle coïncidence!"
It is touching to see the artists' animal companions appear in their work, as did Picasso and Bonnard (below) for example. Capturing a moment in time...

Anyone have a Dachshund I can borrow? ;0)

Have a great week!

My pooch Sparky is half dachshund. He's quite the character! Certainly worth being painted. I'll have to get his portrait done.
