I'VE BEEN COLLAGED!

Remember awhile ago when I told you about the artist Sam Price? The one who turns little bits of paper into dogs? Well, yesterday I got the best surprise ever: an email from Sam with a picture of ME attached to it. A picture of me, as a collage.

Yup. Sam took
hundreds of recycled magazine clippings, added a whole bunch of artisticness, and created a one-of-a-kind, handmade collage of yours truly. He said a picture of me "spoke to him in a unique way" and that my personality "makes an artist's job an easy one". Is that the biggest compliment you've ever heard, or what?

The picture that inspired Sam to collage me.

I have no idea how Sam is able to turn old magazines into a pug, but seeing his work really makes me wish I had thumbs. You can see more of Sam's work (and envy his thumbs even more) at his website, www.mydogcollage.com.

SHHHH. Dutch is going to think we all have collages and freak out about not being famous again.

He still has a big head from that TV interview - every time we see someone with a camera, he thinks it's the paparazzi.

WOW! The collage came out great!!! Are you going to get to keep it or is it going into his gallery (if he has one)? You're one lucky pug!

Hiya Frodo!

My collaged self will be on display at a charity event. My human says when I get rich and famous she'll buy me a Sam collage. As a bonus, I guess. Kinda like my weekend with Frank!

Our human has thumbs & she wishes she had even half of Sams talent. You look great as a collage! Maybe you can just tell Dutch he has a collage so his feelings do not get hurt.

We forgot to ask if anybody would be interested in a grooming party to collect a gigantic amount of dog fluff to help clean up the oil spill. We started collecting from human & pet salons. We thought it would be fun & help at the same time. We can do it anywhere, so if anyone is interested we can find a centralized location.

Hi Miley!
We would love to collect your fur. We thought we could go to a park or someplace fun for dogs & brush away without worrying about a mess. Then we could just have fun & play. The more the merrier. So bring all of your dog friends. We are just waiting to hear from friends like you to let us know when would be a good time & place.
