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.

Artist Suzanne Leonard

Canine Culture

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.
