Art Fur Animals 2016
Thanks to James A. (Jim) Goldsmith
for giving Winston a home.
Each year that I've donated a dog, it was wearing a hat which determined the dog's ultimate character. First there was Gourmutt who wore a bakers hat and apron; he was followed in 2015 by Spot, with a big red nose and dressed as a clown.
The 2016 Boss Dog has his teeth locked onto a stogie and he's attired in a bowler, high collar, vest, tie and wearing a monocle. I spruced him up with a natty silk boutonniere which can be changed to suit the mood. My FB followers have christened him Winston.
Event details below. Hope you'll attend. (It is, after all, the best local art party of the year.)
