“I know I’m gorgeous, but my mom’s art pillows help add to my beauty. My mom is an artist, Marina Kanavaki and she has a blog!

At this celebration you will meet many dogs. You will meet real dogs & graffiti dogs.”

Above is Clay & Ruty. Their mom is Belén Soto & she has a blog, too! Hmm, that looks like a park behind them! Of course, dogs LOVE to go to the park with their humans.

“Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018 & ends on February 4, 2019.”

“So, let me introduce this stunning white graffiti dog I met in Graffiti Alley in Toronto.”

“Many Graffiti dogs, like this St. Bernard, live in the alleys.”

Some like me, are rescue dogs. (Thank you mommy! ❤️🎵❤️.) The poor little thing below was rescued by Resa’s friend. Buddy was kept in 1 room, never had baths, never went to the park & lived in his own filth.”

“Buddy lives with Resa’s friend now. He goes to the park, gets baths & love.”

‘There is no Year Of The Human. When I see dogs like Buddy (and me before Marina found me) I know why.”

“However, I do wish there was The Year of the Mommies and Daddies Who Love Dogs, Mommies like Marina….. & Belén, where as you can see, there is no shortage of love.”

I bought my pair from her Society6 Shop They are perfect to wear to the theater to see the last act of A Frank Angle‘s production of “Dance: The Musical”

What to wear them with was the question? Above, I tried Marina’s art leggings with a tank & silk shirt tied up at my midriff. Below, I tried them with a tank, lace bolero & belt on my hips.

POC #8

Cute, but not dressy enough for the theater.

Paired with a jacket I designed & made worked perfect. I accessorized with turquoise & green. Note the Leaf Pin that Belén Soto‘s creation Drake Noir brought as a gift for me from Spain.

I tested the look with various shoes & ended up with a short heel, which is better than these sandals.
