In The Dog House

Wouldn't you all like to be in one of these "doggie homes"? Well you could be with a visit to the pet fundraiser, "Dog (and Cat) Days of Summer", this Saturday, July 17 at the wonderful Galleria Evangelia in Columbus, Ohio. Take a look at this cool gallery right here: www.galleria-evangelia.com There will be food, fun and frivolity galore!

There's no admission charge, but donations are welcome and all proceeds go to Pets Without Parents, a great organization working tirelessly to save abandoned pets. Of course, bring your pooch, and if he or she's gettin' a little smelly from all this hot weather, there will be baths offered for only $5!
As the afternoon winds down, there will a poetry reading by Charelene Fix, the Chair of CCAD's English Department. She'll be reading from her acclaimed (and truly beautiful) book of poems, "Flowering Bruno: A Dogography" inspired by her late, four-legged companion, Bruno. It makes a great gift for your dog-loving friends, so buy it here! www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dus-stripbooks-tree&field-keywords=Flowering+Bruno+by+charlene+fix&x=13&y=18

Now back to these fabulous dog houses. They were designed and constructed by students at The Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD), where Parental Unit teaches writing, as part of their Foundation Studies (freshman year) design class. And they are amazing! Check out these pictures with artist descriptions below each one!

By the way, if you can't make it in person to the fundraiser, you can still bid on these really cool dog houses at: pets@petswithoutparents.net  before midnight this Friday July 16th. Make sure to specify which doghouse you are bidding on, your name and phone #, and your bid (starting bid and maximum bid)

Hope to see you there!

Those are really great dog houses. What wonderful designs. We really like the Chinese one. Too cute.We wish Mom had some green papers so she could help out, but we are really short right now. We love to help pets without parents but there are so many of us here, that it takes all her money. Good luck with all this. Have a great day.
