Photographer Elke Vogelsang

Canine Culture

Hi everyone & welcome to Friday. We’ve had a crazy week, so I’ve been looking at some beautiful photo’s of good dogs and cool cats by German photographer Elke Vogelsang. Her work has been seen all over the globe. She also has published a book, “Nice Nosing You – for the love of life, dogs & photography”.

Many of her pictures are of her “photography companion dogs” & family members Noodles, Scout & Loli, three Spanish rescue dogs.

In order to “pay it forward”, Elke takes pictures of foster dogs free of charge to try to find forever homes for them. What a pawsome human.

Have a wooftastic weekend.

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Today we’re looking at some wooftastic quilts I’ve sniffed out.  They’re hand made at V & A Studios, which is named after two beloved dachshunds named Victoria & Albert. The artists combine their love for dogs with their love for quilting with pawsome results. Have a look.

I wonder if I should order one of me in purple? Oh, huMom, come here please…

All of us at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs wish you a pawtacular weekend.

Artist Suzanne Leonard

Today I’ve sniffed out the artwork of American portrait artist Suzanne Leonard, who is a self-taught artist. She first took a liking to painting in the 1980’s & has been perfecting her craft ever since. Suzanne works in several mediums including oil, watercolor, pen & ink as well as pencil drawings.

Suzanne Leonard is the proud huMom of two dogs, a macaw & a horse.

Lets have a look at a few of her dog portraits.

Have a wooftastic weekend. It’s finally getting warm here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs.
