Expresso Dogs

adventures of S&S, artists, Hans Sausage, Odie Sanchez

I love it when an artist hinks outside the square – especially when it comes to art involving dogs. My latest art crush is the series called Expresso Dogs by the very clever Brisbane based Stella Park.
The concept was conseptualised when Stella wanted to humanise animals thorugh her work in a fun and quirky way. And boy did she hit the nail on the head. She couples each piece with a quote about coffee which I find gives the artwork a little something extra.

A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.

Starbucks says they are going to start putting religious quotes on cups. The very first one will say, ‘Jesus! This cup is expensive!’

Stella has also humanised cats.

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.
-T.S. Eliot

I was honoured to meet Stella a couple of months back and she was generous enough to do a sketch of Odie Sanchez which she printed on my very own mug! Odie’s ‘mug shot’ arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon and I was so excited to see how much it resembled my little mexican Sanchez.

Do I like my coffee black? Are there other colors?

Odie was excited to see he had mail!

Hans sad the package wasn’t for him

Odie rubbing it in – this present is all MINE

Don’t you think this portrait captures everything about me?

Hans was very jealous that Odie was getting all of the attention so stuck his head in the mug and wouldn’t pull it out.

Where is mine mum?

Is it in here? Surely she sent one to me as well?!

Oh well i’ll just slobber all over Odie’s and claim it as my own

If you would like to see more of Stella’s work be sure to like her on Facebook

Delilah leaves BIG BROTHER

Animal Welfare League of Qld

Tonight millions will tune in to watch Delilah, everyone’s favorite housemate leave the Big Brother house. What started as a two week stint was quickly extended thanks to the positive feedback by viewers and fans of the show.

Delilah has become the poster pooch for shelter dogs and especially the AWLQ, the shelter in which she came.

Delilah has highlighted to the nation the kinds of personality traits typical of dogs waiting for a second chance in shelters Australia wide. She has made it abundantly clear that shelter dogs crave affection and make great companions for a any kind of family.

Delilah’s cheeky and playful personality is a credit to the shelter for giving her the attention and affection she needed while she waited for her forever home.

The AWLQ’s enrichment programs such as beach walking 3 times a week means the dogs rarely spend a full day in their kennels and are able to play with other dogs while also getting regular human companionship.

Run by volunteers the program is a welcome distraction from shelter life, and when the beach van pulls up you can be sure there are tails wagging.

I hope that Delilah’s presence in the Big Brother house makes people consider adoption when looking for a pet to join their family.
