Tootsie Antoinette


Today I found a rare French painting of Tootsie Antoinette.  As you may know this French doggie was well known for her love of doggie cookies.  As you can see she is presented here in her feathers.  I must say I was rather surprised that she would be in her fine gown but did not bother to do her hair.  I always say that you can’t judge an old dog by it’s hat.

Portrait of Mme Caniche


Today at the Metropolitan Dog Museum of Art I enjoyed the renown Portrait of Mme Caniche by Jon Whiner General.  This painting of a young poodle resulted in a scandalous reception at the Doggie Art Salon due to the rumors of the Mme’s reputation.  No matter the rocky beginnings, Mme Caniche is a splendid  example of doggie art.

Vincent Van Pug


After purchasing an other self-portrait by van Pug, I could not resist a second one when it became available.  Here the unfortunate painter is pictured soon after he tried to remove his ear.  It is worth all the bones!  Always your art lover,

Dr. Theodore Bear.

Little Rosa


“I would really liked to have known her, said Dr. Theodore Bear today about the Romantic doggie painting of Little Rosa.  “She looks so deep in thought as she leans against that tree,”he said.  This lovely painting of this doggie makes us all think about the Romanticists, Dr. Bear.

Petite Puppy Dancer


Pierre Poodle, the well known Impressionist is that painter of Petite Puppy Dancer.  Dr Theodore Bear, a good friend of Monsieur Poodle believes that this was painted as influenced by Doggus who is known for his dancing puppies.  “It is all Poodle, in his style however, and nothing like Doggus,” said Dr. Bear.    No matter, Monsieur Poodle, Petite Puppy is bow-wowtiful!

Baby Blue Basset


“Perhaps the most famous painting of a Basset, this work by Dogas Gainsburger  has long been a favorite of many visitors of The Greater London Dog Museum.” said Dr. Theodore Bear today.  “This painting of the young Basset Hound is wearing a blue short paints, something that is rarely seen” Bear continued.  “This has long been a favorite of English dogs and enjoyed by many guests at the Dog Museum.”    This stout little fellow has been admired by dogs of all breeds.  Gainsburger, you inspire us with your Blue Basset.

Boxer Brothers and Their Cat



Dr. Theodore Bear gave a new lecture today in the Greater London Dog Museum of a little known painting, Two Boxer Brothers and Their Cat. “The great dog artist Jan Biteaear, a Dutch painter, created a series of pups in paintings that represented each of the five senses.” said Dr. Bear. “The brothers in this painting represents one of the five, senses, that of a loving touch.”  Dr. Bear continued.  These young pups represent what is great in dog-kind.  Thank you  boxer brothers and Dr. Bear, we have learned our lesson.

King Rhino the IIIV


According to Dr. Theodore Bear, this portrait of King Rhino the IIIV is the most famous painting of any dog king.  This painting by Paws Dogine the Pup was painted during King Rhino’s marriage to his wife Dame Dogmore. “King Rhino recognized the power of this painting and commissioned a number of copies of it.” said Dr. Bear.  “Most of the other dog kings burried their paintings in a hole to keep them safe.  It was a good thing that King Rhino made copies  as the original was destroyed in a fire.  What we enjoy here is one of the copies.”  Well King Rhino, we are glad that we can still enjoy your famous painting. We will enjoy it in the Greater London Dog Museum along with all the other royal bones!
