dogs + love + art

Yes, it seems to be turning into "Pet Week" here at Bubby and Bean.  Admittedly, after the sad news I received on Friday regarding my Bubby, I haven't had much else on my mind.  These past few days have been profoundly bittersweet; I feel grateful for every blissful moment I'm getting to spend with him, while knowing in the back of my mind that each of these moments is one step closer to saying goodbye.

I feel strongly that dogs, and pets in general, are some of life's greatest gifts.  Pets are teachers, superheroes, comedians, gurus, keepers of secrets, muses, and unconditionally loving companions.

Regardless of whether or not you are an animal lover, I hope that these lovely, artistic tributes to our canine friends bring some inspiration to your day. 


  1. Awwww, I love these!! So sweet and yes very inspiring!! I agree that animals and pets are the greatest gifts. Thank you for sharing everything you have going on with your Bubby and I think its wonderful that you're paying to tribute to him this week!!!!


  2. I love all of these. The SARK poster is so true and so sweet. I've seen it before and she has one for kitties too. I hope you're enjoying your time with Bubby, please keep your readers posted on him.

  3. You make me want a dog so badly... I can't have one for another six months at the very least, and of course your posts have reminded me that there is a sad side to being a dog owner, but oh how I want a furry friend.

  4. I lvoe the SARK print. I gave it to a dog lover in my life years ago! So sweet!

  5. This was a really beautiful, touching tribute. Having lost my dog a little while ago, I feel inspired to do something like this for her. I don't know what yet, but definitely something. Thank you for inspiring me :)

  6. I am so sorry for your dog. I LOVE my dog, I mean I and my husband are crazy for him. He gives us so much love and laughter. I feel your sadness and wish you all my best. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Aw, these picks are so cute! How can you not love dogs?
