Last weekend Sadie and I went to a fun dog event in a local park. They had tables of vendors, shelters and rescues, dog businesses, K9 police demonstrations, and many other fun activities. My favorite activity at the Carnival of Dogs was the caricature artist. In exchange for a charitable donation, a wonderful cartoon artist was creating portraits of some of the pooches. Sadie and I made it to the line just in time, getting the second to last caricature of the day. I was very proud of how patient Sadie was sitting for her portrait. We got more than one compliment from spectators on how well behaved she was! Our only issue was that whenever I got up from the bench to take a photo of Sadie and the progress of her caricature, Sadie would jump up thinking we were ready to leave. So I had to be quick with my photos and then run over to put Sadie back into the right position each time. Luckily the cartoonist didn’t mind my photographic troublemaking and Sadie’s caricature was completed in under 20 minutes. The artist said she really enjoyed creating her Sadie cartoon and we were very pleased with the results. Sadie’s first caricature will soon join the first caricature drawn of me on the wall in my parent’s house.
