Ridge Road – Hot Dog!

Ridge Road – Hot Dog!

This morning we went for a walk on Ridge Road. As with all the roads in this town, it’s a dirt road. This time of year the frost that’s been in the roads all winter starts melting and rising which creates soft roads = our famous Mud Season. It hasn’t been too bad this year [...]

Boston Globe article

Boston Globe article

In yesterday’s Boston Globe there was a good article about the ‘humanization’ of dogs: Go to: http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/ideas/articles/2009/03/29/the_family_dog Mentioned in the article is a study in the Journal of Business Research last year that followed the changes in depictions of animals in magazine ads: In the 1920s fashionable women strolled outdoors with their dogs, by midcentury dogs [...]

Noel, Finn & Leo

Awhile ago I posted a painting I did of my sister Alice’s two dogs, Finn and Noel, and wrote about how Noel has cancer. Here’s a recent picture of Noel at her house in Connecticut. She’s recently had her last Chemo shot for now, and is doing very well. Shedding some hair, but the vet [...]

Spring Dog

Spring Dog

Buy small print Click on image to see larger version Spring comes late up here in the north country, but today it’s over 50 degrees outside in the sun and the warmth gives us hope.  The dogs have been out in the back yard most of the day.  Sometimes they just sit in the snow for an [...]

Buy 8 x 11 poster print This cartoon does not have to be explained to most dog owners.  Unless you live in an extremely remote place your dog probably barks, and neighboring dogs probably bark back.  Extend that thought to a chain reaction and you get ‘The World Wide Woof’. Our two dogs, Pepper and Radar,  run [...]

I make a very rough looking small collage with cutout photographs, glue, foam core, and other materials. I lay it [...]

Morning Walk

Morning Walk

Every morning I’m awakened by one dog (Radar) trampling and licking me and another dog’s cold wet nose (Pepper).   They wait for me to brush my teeth and get dressed: Pepper chases her tail. Radar continues trying to lick me. I keep pushing her away. Collars snapped on. Leashes. Check the thermometer.  Coat, hat, gloves. [...]

Springer Spaniel

Springer Spaniel

Purchase Original Painting Although the first dog in my life was a medium sized terrier mutt named Ralph, I grew up with Labrador Retrievers. Every fall my father hunted ducks, grouse and woodcock, and he expertly trained our dogs not only to fetch dead birds, but to sit, stay, heel, come, and follow various other commands. [...]

Squirrel Hunt

Squirrel Hunt

Most of the winter we feed wild birds. The wire basket bird feeder, loaded with black sunflower seeds, hangs on one leg of a ‘T’ at the top of a long aluminum pole attached to the deck. A few feet up from the deck is an old whiskey bottle that serves to keep the red [...]
