Country Puppy


This lovely puppy and her kitten is one of my favorite subjects.  I am bow-wowy crazy over paintings that remind me of my own puppy past.  This painting makes me remember the days spent at my granddoggies farm.  I hope that you enjoy this Country Puppy with me.

Self Portrait of Missy van Harrier


This is the earliest painting by a known female painter.  It is certainly wonderful to have an opportunity to enjoy this bowtiful painting.  The young Missy  Harrier was a brave doggie indeed to paint a portrait of herself.  Usually young females painted under their father’s names so that their work would be accepted.  I hope that you join in with a barking salute to this brave artist.

Portrait of Lassie Puppiati


This portrait is by the well known Renaissance artist Dogenzo Doggo. He painted his portraits more realistically in a real dog manner.  Lassie is shown here in a rich ornate hat and jewels.  Don’t you just want to lap her right up?  What ever you think, Doggo certainly created a dog gone lovely painting.

Catidoglione the Aristocrat


This painting is another example by the well known doggie artist of the Renaissance, Beagel Sanzio da Urbino. The portrait is of the famous Catidoglione, who was one cool cat, who kept his head and behaved like a happy hound no matter what was happening.  Beagel manages to capture this feeling of aristocracy in this portrait, which is what leaves me panting after it for my collection.

Dogear’s Mother


A lot of dogs have fond memories of their mothers when they were young whelps.  This painting reminds me of my mother busily at work over chewed socks.  This lovely painting by Rufus Dogear with a wise elder dog hard at work some kind of needlework, is a view into the dog home.  Thank you Dogear for the memories.

One Bad Dog


“I had to purchase this picture for my puppy collection,” said Dr. Theodore Bear.  “It shows that dogs come in all types and this dog is bad to the bone!  Who wouldn’t want such a bad boy?”

Fantastic Portrait of a Prince


Today in the London Dog Art Museum Dr. Theodore Bear discussed a strange painting of a Prince.  “Not every Artist paints realism”, said Dr. Bear.  “Every once in a while there is an puppy painter who paints from his imagination.  The Portrait of Prince of Bulls is just this kind of painting.  While it is true that their are may Bulls in Mythology, it is possible that this unknown artist was attempting to paint this type of art work.  Whatever the reason, we can enjoy the Prince of Bulls.”

Tootsie Antoinette


Today I found a rare French painting of Tootsie Antoinette.  As you may know this French doggie was well known for her love of doggie cookies.  As you can see she is presented here in her feathers.  I must say I was rather surprised that she would be in her fine gown but did not bother to do her hair.  I always say that you can’t judge an old dog by it’s hat.

As always-  Dr. Theodore Bear

Portrait of Mme Caniche


Today at the Metropolitan Dog Museum of Art I enjoyed the renown Portrait of Mme Caniche by Jon Whiner General.  This painting of a young poodle resulted in a scandalous reception at the Doggie Art Salon due to the rumors of the Mme’s reputation.  No matter the rocky beginnings, Mme Caniche is a splendid  example of doggie art.
