Dogs. Not all people love ‘em, but those who do shower their four-legged, tail wagging friends with unbridled affection and unconditional love. Or is that the other way around? Whichever, the relationship between canis familiarius and homo sapien has triumphantly stood the test of time.
Myself? A dog lover. Until recently, I was master of two pooches. My big old Black Lab, guardian of the property and grand fetcher of anything thrown, passed away leaving my old Weimarner, Suki, as the queen of the house. At 12 years old, she still has fantastic energy and a stubborn streak to boot. She also receives copious amounts of love and affection from my family. Her time will come as well...sooner than we care to think.
So, it goes without saying that I have had dogs on my mind recently. These creatures are an inspiration to all who have known the love of a dog. Happy, carefree, silly, loyal, affectionate....so many other adjectives to describe a dog’s positive attributes (and there are negative ones, too, but I won’t mention those here) I was actually surprised to see how many Artisans Collective members create dog-themed items. From artworks to dog apparel, this team has the dog inspired treasures covered.
