This February, we are hosting Dog Days of Winter, a pop-up exhibition showcasing the artistic talent of our members. Anyone currently enrolled in a membership program is encouraged to submit their canine-centric art for consideration—this includes all membership levels and types.
We’d like to extend our thanks to those members who have already submitted their art! We look forward to seeing the other submissions that come in. Even if your art is not selected to hang in the gallery, it will be featured digitally on our Community Wall. Continue reading Calling All Artists→

Okay, so none of you have sent in your dog drawings from Monday, so I thought I’d get the ball rolling. After you see these, and after you have stopped laughing, start drawing. Yours can’t possibly be worse! (Remember, I told you I can’t even draw stick figures.)
