flea finds n doxie treasures

Well hello, it's me, Baxter, your roving rover reporter reporting to you from my home today. I'm here to show you my mom's latest vintage scores. There really aren't too many on account of how hot it's been, but it is all pretty swell, even if I wasn't there to help her choose it.

Here, let me show u a close up of some things she found at the flea market.

So looky! Dontcha just love the imagery and colors in the Dali print? Mom says it's almost luminous. I say it's just super cool, just like that metal bowl thingy. Though I hope neither thingy melts like the stuff in Dali's later work. I know, cuz I'm in art class! oh and yeah, that little metal doll suitcase? Yippee, totally mine to travel with when she's not using it for display at her shows, cuz it's perfect for my kong toy n kibble n duds!

Now check this out. U remember my uncle who visited recently and helped make my new kitty perch? Well he gave us this super cool vintage green wooden doxie! As far as the holes on his back go, he says the big hole near its tushie had a black stick that was its tail but he sorta lost it, and the other tiny little holes all along its back? No idea. That's okay, I told him. I got like this small patch of furry loose skin between my legs - u know, kinda behind my unmentionable - and I have absolutely NO idea what that is for.

Well that is my report for today. This is Baxter your roving rover reporter wishing u the best of Thursdays! :)

toodles! - b

Love the suitcase! Maybe your mom can use it when (if) she brings you to Chicago for the Bucktown art festival! Ike also has that furry skin and is envious of what Otto has back there!!!

Baxter, The green doxie is actually an hor doerve server. The tiny holes are for toothpicks (with or without a chunk of cheese on them) and the larger tail hole is for a dowel that you stack pretzels up on. I've seen them on ebay occasionally. Maybe you can use it serve doggie treats to your friends!

Mmmm, cheese!

B -- Speaking of Dali, have you seen Gary Larson's "Persistence of Wiener Dogs"? I hope it came up in your art class!
