During a recent humane society fundraiser event, I got this caricature done of Clancy! They had hired a professional caricature artist and it was well worth the $30 donation to the local humane society to have this adorable piece of art forever in my life.
Clancy was a superb model, sitting still for the 15 minutes it took for the artist to create it. I had no idea what he was drawing, for I was sitting in front of the easel with Clancy… I just mentioned a little about the history of the keeshond breed and how Clancy enjoys “dock diving”.
He captured the keesie smile quite well along with his mischieveous “sideways glance” that he often gives.
With the convenience of the Internet, you can easily do a search for a caricature artist in your area to have a portrait of your dog to cherish forever!
There’s lots of events going on with Spring in full swing! Clancy and I’s weekends are full of activities for the foreseeable future and we hope that you are on the lookout for fun outings to enjoy with your dog!
We’ll be back soon!
There are so many things to do with your dog happening every week around town! Here Clancy is enjoying “Playtime” at a local pet store.

Depending on where you live, there are many opportunities to go out and about with your dog! You and your dog may enjoy a visit to a pet-friendly store, or could participate in a pet-related fundraiser, or go to one of the various functions designed for an outing with your pup such as a Pet Expo or “Yappy Hour” at a dog-friendly cafè. Or you could just go to a sporting event or ask your family or friends if it’s okay to bring your pooch over with you. One way or another, just let your dog enjoy the world outside of your home.
Dogs can enjoy going with you to parties, too! If you’re planning on attending an outdoor event at a friend’s house, just ask to see if it’s okay if you bring your dog… you may be pleasantly surprised!
Most weekends beginning in the Spring offer some kind of event that you can bring your dog to. Next week I should have more time to share Clancy and I’s experiences and offer some more insight on how to enjoy outings with your furry best friend.
Clancy loves the water, loves other dogs and loves people. He couldn’t be happier that I took him to the SPCA’s “Puppy Plunge” fundraiser!
In the meantime, to find an event to enjoy with your dog, try visiting http://www.bringfido.com/event/
or just doing a web search for your city’s dog events. Visit your local humane society’s website or your local pet store and ask them if they know of anything fun to bring your dog to. Clancy and I will be going to one this weekend and will share our experience next time!
