Fashion Dog

23 February 2015 - Nigel models his new bandanna
I was feeling craftsy and sewed a bandanna for Nigel today.  He looks so handsome (IMHO) in the OSU colors; I wonder if OSU will consider giving him an honorary doctorate on his looks, alone, either that or give him honorary mascot status.

23 February 2015 - International Test Rose Garden, Portland, Oregon
20" x 24", acrylic on hardboard
I'd started this summer 2014, just before we moved.  I unearthed it from amidst everything still in dust-covered storage and finally finished it.

Our home renovation, incidentally, has been stalled for the last couple of months due to the process of getting permits from the City of Portland :( ...   I only half-jokingly wonder if our renovation will need to be re-titled yet again to the Great Remodel of 2014-???.

My husband refers to our current decor with torn-up walls and ceiling, and everything in piles and boxes, as "post-apocalyptic style".

The Demise of Redshirt

Nigel decided to bring Redshirt out into the backyard this afternoon....

Much to be done.
Nigel takes a break from his hard work.
Back to work...
Remains of Redshirt
After relieving Redshirt of his arms in early January, Nigel seemed to relegate Redshirt to the "B" team of toys... until today.  He was determined to remove the squeaker as well as most of Redshirt's body and the stuffing in his head.  I helped some, playing tug with Nigel, but Nigel did most of the work.

It's an orange koala bear, in case you were wondering.

From 13 February 2015.  Come hang out with me?

Today.  Nigel enjoys the unseasonably balmy weather (was just playing with my husband and his squeaky orange koala bear).

Happy Valentine's Day!
