wet doggin' X 2

i'm sensing a theme today..
i decided to take a walk, even though it started to rain, and i found a wet dog on pine cone road. and NO, i'm NOT gonna use this found object in my art.. he wasn't far from home, so i thought, 'this'll be easy. i'll just call the owners and they'll pick him up, and that'll be that.'
well, 'whitenose,' who looked to be a young lab mix without a speck of white on him, had other plans. he let me pet him and scratch his belly and rub his ears, but his thirst for freedom took hold and he bolted before i could catch up to him. i called the owners, but they weren't home, so i tried my best to keep up with the guy..(hm. whitenose.. maybe they named him for his cocaine addict like tendencies?) he weaved in and out of yards, making sure to taunt the jailed dogs and left his mark until he was shooting nothing but blanks.
he stayed near, but refused to be wrangled. finally, just as whitenose was starting to lose his high, i reached the owner, who spoke broken english and didn't even know her dog had escaped. the pooch and i hung out, had one last pet, then i sent him on his way. he'll have stories to tell his grandpups, and i'll rest easy, knowing good ol' whitenose didn't become red roadkill..

Burgerbits!
I like that icon you used. I buy old mags like Life and Look just for the great ads and adtext in them.

I hope you'll show more samples like that either in your journal or as icon snippets.

Re: Burgerbits!
you are not gonna BELiEVE the series i'm working on!!!!!!!!!!!!
this week i found 10 or so vintage national geographics in our library free box, and i'm salvaging the advertisements, collaging, painting over, etc. to reveal only minimal aspects of the ads. series title: 'Ad Subtract.'
i'll be posting them, don't you worry..

Awwww, isn't that the *best* feeling when you return someone's doggy?

Because seriously... if my dog got out, I'd be DYING. And if someone returned him to me, I'd love them so much and I'd be sooo eternally grateful.

But yeah, if his nose wasn't white, and his name is whitenose, I'd be thinking those people were on crack too. hee hee

yeah! whitenose????
i detected a slight columbian accent in that lady!!!

and it did feel really really good to return him, although i don't think they take very good care of the guy. he was filthy and didn't even run to her when she showed up. and she didn't even know he was gone in the first place!!!! that's just WEIRD. i keep such tabs on our little jozee, 'specially cuz she's 3/4 deaf. if she leaves, she won't hear me call her back. wah.

anyway, something tells me whitenose is an outdoor dog that doesn't get much attention, poor guy..

Aww that's such a shame. I hate when people are like that with their dogs... because if you really spoil a dog they are SO happy and have the biggest personality.

Yeah, they totally sound like crackheads now though! HA HA... columbian accent.
