Check out the shoes on the babe below in one of my collages. You could sure buy a lot of my pet art for $4,995.00. ORDER NOW FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!!!!

Do you know someone who loves Pugs? If so, consider my purple pug portrait, a great gift idea for a mere $30.00. Such a bargain! Seriously. I can custom make an affordable collage with any animal breed. Or I can include an actual image of a beloved pet if you send me photos.

The cutest cat on earth.

I can't stop thinking about Roscoe, my cat, tonight. I remember his beauty, his smell (the best), his softness and sweetness. Sigh. Here are some of my favorite photos of him. He was the cutest cat on earth.

Audrey Hepburn & her pets

2011 is the 50th anniversary of the release of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Those of you who have seen it know that a cat features prominently in the film. Here's a little background info found at http://thecatfiles.wordpress.com/2009/04/07/audrey-hepburn-and-cat-from-breakfast-at-tiffanys/.

Audrey Hepburn and Cat from Breakfast at Tiffany’s
By John Greco

Audrey Hepburn’s feline co-star was Orangey, an orange tabby who made his film debut in 1951 in “Rhubarb.” Orangey went on to make appearances in films like “This Island Earth” and “The Incredible Shrinking Man.” Orangey is the only feline to win the “Patsy Award” twice, the animal world’s equivalent of the Oscar.

Here's a picture of Audrey and "Cat".

And here are some of my collages featuring Audrey with her pet giraffes and flamingos. You can find them on my website at http://www.petcollage.net.

The happiest place on earth.

I participated in Chicago's Ravenswood Art Walk this past weekend and was placed in the "Urban Pooch" to show my collages. This "canine life center" is a 7,100 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility designed to support canine health and wellness. It's an amazing place where everybody smiles and laughs and wags their tails a lot. In fact, I overheard one very satisfied customer say, "This is the happiest place on earth!."

in addition to our dog beaches, we Chicagoans are lucky to have an amazing array of places that care for and cater to animals. Like Urban Pooch. This facility offers lots of products and services, including boarding, grooming, etc. They have a chill lounge, "a special place with a serene atmosphere where dogs can socialize, but also relax. Perfect for elderly canines, those recovering from surgery, or dogs that need a little quiet time." I think I might like it there.

They offer massage, promising that afterwards, "your pooch will feel like a puppy." The ancient Japanese technique of Reiki is available too, helping to instill deep relaxation and healing. I really want to check in and feel like a puppy too.

While there, I was allowed the special privilege of going into the day care room where I was immediately surrounded by a pack of 40 or so dogs. I was warned that they would jump and drool. They were all curious and friendly and adorable and well-behaved. When I told them not to jump, they didn't. Suffice it to say, I loved it there. In particular, I met a huge, gorgeous, sweet Great Dane - what a magnificent specimen!!

Here are some photos I took.

The last image is that of an Urban Pooch employee. Does she look happy or what?
