Those Darn Dogs

When I was little, we used to eat in a restaurant with this picture on the wall.

Every so often, one would go on a visit and find this picture or one very like it in the family room. I believe it was considered to be quite humorous. I saw this one in the game room at a retirement center. They also had this one, which I had never seen before.

So I guess the classics never die, eh? Although it’s been many a long year since I’ve seen “Pinky” and “Blue Boy” anywhere.

Picture ganked from Daisy Fairbanks Vintage, which GO THERE.

WRITING PROMPT: What sort of art — or “art” — is popular among the general public in your fictional world?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Marian, I’ve seen the top dog before but not the other one!

    Strangely, I don’t often use art in my books. However, in my first novel, Hearts Across Forever, a painting of Rose Hall Great House became part of the plot because of what happened when my heroine saw it.

    Writers can use art in a lot of different ways. The dog paintings could create some real stories all my themselves!!!

    I love those old photos of all the dogs playing pool. I used to see them a lot in pubs in the UK, it really takes me back 🙂
