Wounded Warrior Dogs Exhibit

March 19, 2017

Check out the artwork of James Mellick, who has lovingly carved wooden statues of Wounded Warrior Dogs. He won a $200,000 People’s Choice Award, as well as other prestigious awards for his work.

The dogs are currently on exhibit at the Ohio Craft Museum in Columbus, Ohio, but 3/26 is the last day, so hurry if you want to see it live. You can see pictures here.

Worth checking out!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

I wanted to link you to a post honoring Jethro from a friend of mine, pet artist BZTat.

She is much better than I am at capturing the enormity of the loss our shared city experienced today. And she’s an awesome artist, to boot! She has volunteered to paint a portrait of Jethro for the Davis family. I hope they take her up on it!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
