Dogs Playing Poker

My art for today’s Art Every Day Month?  Performance art with photography.  What happens at our house when there are 4 playful dogs?  Poker, of course.  This was our Thanksgiving fun.  The dogs were very accommodating – they knew treats were coming.  Tess, the cutie on the left has a duct tape “cigar” that was covered in peanut butter to encourage her to keep it in her mouth. Pure silliness that kept us laughing the rest of the day!

    This is wonderful – such fun and such GOOD dogs!

    We were holding each dog – we contorted ourselves so only to the dogs showed. We also created bracelets that held the cards so the dogs just had to stay somewhat still. Getting Tess to hold the cigar was the absolute trickiest part. Fun beyond words and the dogs were fantastic!
