Now HERE is something Interesting Coming Up

I don't know how this escaped my radar for an upcoming dog event - the owner's of FRED's dog who's name is Lola go to Janet Chernin's doggy day care - so I've taken tons of pictures of her - she is SO photogenic - and there was an article in today's Chronicle Herald about an event coming up at their business. It sounds like it's going to be quite the "to do". Very hoy-folloy. I'm definitely going to get a button made when I'm there. Of which dog - I do not know yet.

From today's Chronicle Herald:

Set your sights on Pet Spectacle


Eyelevel Gallery's fundraising party, Pet Spectacle, Saturday, Nov.
25, 8 p.m., at FRED, 2606 Agricola St., celebrates four-legged,
feathered, floating and furry friends with an auction of pet-inspired
art and design. Admission is $3.

The gallery invited local and national artists to create objects —
clothing, accessories, dwellings and more — for, or about, pets.

The evening includes an auction, performances, live music and prizes.

Pet owners are encouraged to bring a photo of their animals for the
on-the-spot button-making machine.

The evening also marks the launch of petri dish, a CD compilation of
Halifax musicians and bands who love animals. Copies of the limited
edition CD will be for sale.
This is Hamish, Lola, and Quinta

    I saw no mention anywhere about that event actually welcoming our furry friends... something tells me their photos (and your money) are welcome but not the pets themselves.

  2. Hi there,
    Unfortunately we tried to get furry friends invited, but there are a lot of bylaws restricting their participation, which is why we invited people to bring photos. This is a charity event for a gallery who does a lot of work in the city, it's only $3 to get in, and there are plenty of opportunities to win amazing pet-related raffle prizes too. So many places were very generous--look for prizes from Metro Dog Wash, Glamour Puss, Westbury Vet, Urban Carnivore and many more. Plus, there's a chance you can win a custom-pet portrait from talented local artists. If you're looking for more information, visit
