Gone To The Dogs...






and other clichés, as in dogs look like their owners or the other way around.
I can't remember. But after visiting the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at MSG in NYC, I do believe that it is true!

Melanie, I love Micah. What a character. She is the cats meow or rather the dog equivalent?

memi said...

Ira, though you'd never know it from the coiffe, that she, Micah, is a HE!- loving every doggone minute...

Ira Robbins said...

Must be very popular with that coiffe.

What very unusual paintings!, although style look a bit bizarre it doesn't look pretty bad, I like it, I want one of those paintings to hang it on my wall in my room.

I like to draw anything that comes along my way specially dogs, the last times I draw a tablet of Generic Viagra because I was asked to do it, my doctor likes paintings and drawings of her medications.
