Since making a smaller dog of my own for my husband’s band, The Guys In The Neighborhood, I know the excitement, the thoughts involved in planning it and time spent in hard work. The hours of dedication are well worth it for anyone who has made their own dog, to have the world “enjoy their creation."
How heartbreaking it is to see vandalism of these fine “masterpieces." What is wrong with people? I have a fantastic picture of Tip-A-Few’s dog, complete with mustache, eyes, guitar and two bandaleros (one holding maracas and one with a trumpet). Now, you don’t see the mustache, eyes or two bandaleros!
There is a great picture of Paw Pro & Company’s big dog and two little ones, complete with jewels and beads. Now, there is only one small dog and the body parts are peeled off the big one.
Then Butch’s Burritos — one day their dog had a real sombrero stapled on its’ head, then it disappeared! However, the owners did find it somewhere on the beach a few days later.
I am so thankful for taking pictures of these dogs as I see them come out. One thing I do have to say to the owners: Do not fret, for you will see a picture of your dog (in its entirety) in the ArfWalk 2012 poster.
