Street + Art + Dog

Though it may surprise some (Ruby and Rosie), I do have other interests in addition to cats and dogs. One of my favorite things is street or public art. Basically, I love art that is free and accessible to all - humans and dogs and even cats alike. So I thought why not combine passions (art + dog) and share interesting local street and public art on the blog. 

This photograph was taken on the far north side of Chicago at the corner of Winthrop and Granville. It is basically just a wall that is painted in graphic colorful shapes that brightens up an otherwise grey stretch. Ruby thought it was a perfect spot for a quick rest and sip of water on a hot summer morning. 

Don't forget to enter our Kitty Kush Catnip Pellets and Built In Grinder (with a extra special surprise from Rosie and Moo Shu) giveaway!


  1. You are right, that kind of art is for all peeps and pets... and we haven't to buy a ticket, we can enjoy it efurry day :o)

  4. We've got a lot of street art in our neighborhood so will have to check it out, not to copy you though.

    We thought a great way to get to know you better is to nominate you for 8 Photos of Happiness! Rules are simple. 8 photos of happiness and nominate some other blogs and thank Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet for creating this event. Tag, you're it! Love Dolly

  5. What a cool pic....and Ruby, you make it a masterpiece!

  6. I love street art too! There's are several pages on FB that display street art, as I'm sure you know. I haven't necessarily seen where they combine our love of dogs and art regularly together though. I look forward to seeing more of yours.

  7. That is fun to see street art. I love to see a train go by that has art on it's side. Ruby, great choice of a place to take a break. You all have a great week end.

  8. Mom would be happy to paint any wall - just give her the paint and let her go :)

    Am all for that idea!!! this is super and all the more decorative for having Ruby model it!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  10. Street art when it's done well is so brilliant. You cannot go wrong with art and dogs ;)

  11. I love the colours! A vast majority of the street art in this part of the world is some sort of sectarian statement. I would be happy with some colours like that! :)

  12. Hey Ruby!
    Wow, that's so cool! Being a woodsy kind of guy it's fascinating to me to get to see city things. I'd like to see more of you around that urban art! You look great.
    Grr and Woof,
