This blog is about all kinds of dogs. The most recent post looks at the history of dog shows, the first showing up in the late 18th century in England. In another post, a dog owner writes about her experiences training her puppy to become a therapy dog. A post from last year looks at a resource for animal rights and welfare, which also offers help on spaying and neutering your pets.
The blog has a sense of humor, poking fun at people who get too attached to their dogs. But it’s also serious and in-depth; there are links to books and other resources for further reading on the topic of each post, as well as posts written by others that relate to the topic.
This blog is a good one if you’re interested in dogs, whether they’re your pets or something you’re just interested in reading about. It’s interesting to learn more about different parts of dog history and what they’ve been used for over time, and it can help give you some insight into how your own pet acts and thinks.
I was thrilled when I came across this book, “The History of Dogs”, by Raymond and Lorna Coppinger.
The authors are scientists and their love for animals is reflected in their work. They also write very well and their book is an absolute treasure trove of information.
“The History of Dogs” covers the domestication of dogs beginning with the wolf, includes a detailed look at early dog breeds, long distance sledding, sled dogs and sled dog teams, transport and more.
It is filled with wonderful illustrations as well as photographs. The pictures alone make this book worthy of having on your bookshelf.
I have a soft spot for animals and this book touched me deeply. It will definitely appeal to animal lovers everywhere.”

IKEA art is a type of postmodern art that is sometimes mass-produced and then displayed in public spaces or galleries. IKEA art has been the subject of much contention in recent years, with some arguing that it should be taken seriously as an art form, while others assert that it must be considered a joke because IKEA sells its products as do-it-yourself furniture sets.
These pieces vary widely in form. Some consist of nothing more than a photograph of something that looks like an artwork; others are sculptures or paintings. The best known IKEA artist is probably Stelios Mousarris, who creates abstract sculptures from cheap materials such as cardboard, corrugated fiberboard, and rubber bands.
IKEA ART – It’s art, but not as we know it. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston is displaying IKEA furniture that is made to look like famous works of art. It may sound like a joke, but it’s not. In fact the exhibition is designed to raise questions about the value of art and the relationship between art and design. So should you go and look at the “art” or not?
Spencer Finch has been appointed artist-in-residence at the museum. He has already produced some “IKEA” paintings including The Last Supper, which shows Jesus sitting at an IKEA table with his apostles eating Kottbullar meatballs from IKEA bowls.
And there is a special installation of a reproduction of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain. But instead of a urinal, this one is a Swedish toilet bowl-cum-sink unit called BILLY, made in 1978: http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_US/html/products/60234031/?ref=search
