There are two pet holidays this week!
This Thursday, August 8th, is International Cat Day. I wonder what Heathclif and Garfield are doing all day?
This Saturday, August 10th, is Spoil Your Dog Day. It is also happens to be National Be Lazy Day...maybe take lots of naps with your dog?
I'll be adding some paint to big pup Carly while cat Simon sips from his very own studio water dish. If I'm lazy at all, it will on purpose, swinging from our hammock while enjoying time with my guy Andy.
Whatever you do, are you going to give a scratch behind the ears to your best furry friend?

DOGust Universal Birthday for Shelter Dogs is today, August 2st!
Happy Birthday to all of the dogs whose real birthdays are totally unknown!
When you search for DOGust Birthday, you find North Shore Animal League America began this holiday for all dogs that don't have a birthday. Really, they have a birthday, just that the shelter doesn't know to the day..
For the longest time, I didn't know that our cat Simon's birthday was in March. If I didn't know Simon's birthday month, I'd definitely appreciate that DOGust now also extends to cats, lol.
Do you know your dog or cat's real birthday?

PS: This painting is Two Woof Friends, 6 by 6 inches, mixed media on panel.
2016 began with a bucket-list painting workshop with Bob Burridge.
One of the things he taught was how to reuse dried acrylic paint. This was the first design I made, using what he taught. Bob came by table...and enthusiastically yelled out to me that my next series was going to be of cats.
Bob was correct. Whenever I feel super sad, frustrated, upset, and in need of a smile, I go through my stash of dry acrylic paint and make a goofy cat.
This little goofy cat is based on Simon. This one is staying in my collection, unless the adoption offer makes me think twice, lol. It's called "1st Simon," is acrylics on 6 by 6 inches on wood board.
