not a dog lover but love this dog
May 31, 2007
Generally, I don't go for pet-themed art. Nor am I a big lover of the canine. Don't get me wrong -- there are certain dogs that I love, just not dogs in general. FWIW -- I feel the same way about children.
While in P-town, I walked into the Kennedy Studios and fell plum in love with Ambrose, who is the first dog pictured on this page of the artist Georg Williams' website. It's not so much that I love sheepdogs. It's just that the expression on this dog's face reminds me so much of the Boy that I just can't stand it. I don't even know where I'd hang such a thing -- the art, that is, not the Boy. Still. It calls.
Unrelated but worth mentioning -- SUNY-Oneonta (and the department in which I teach) gets some love. Sweet.
Also unrelated but worth mentioning -- Josh Wolk and I stopped watching Real World at the same time and for the same reasons. Just another reason why I love him.
