It’s National Puppy Day!

So I thought you all might need to see my favorite puppy-themed work of art: The Dancing Dog!

Charles Joseph Dominique Eisen, French
Le chien dansant (The Dancing Dog)
Panel painting
1720 to 1778
Gift of Val A. Browning
UMFA1993.034.009

Puppies love wearing full suits and hats! Also, start training your puppy to wear a costume when he is a puppy as full grown dogs are less responsive when you suddenly decide to start dressing them in outfits.

What is your favorite dog/puppy-themed artwork? Be sure to check out the UMFA Collections Database for some ideas. A quick search with the term “dog” reveals some great doggy treasures in our collection.
