Years of Bob Barker telling people at the end of "Price is Right" to spay and neuter their dogs didn't work. PETA's campaign featuring Mickey Rourke challenging pet owners to "Have the cajones to fix your dog" isn't working. So leave it to psychotherapist/graphic designer/dog lover Robyn Arouty of Project 71 to spell it out in black and aqua with humor and cool. Great job, Robyn!

Rumors are swirling that a dog has been spotted at the White House and that a male Portuguese Water Dog puppy might there to greet the Obamas when they arrive home today at 5:50 PM Eastern time. I am tracking all the First Dog news over at my other blog, The Obama Dog Blog.
In the meantime, I wanted to share my latest work with you entitled Willy, Come! I had the pleasure of working with Portie owner Buffy Nicolas on another collage of her boy Willy. Our first collaboration was the Porties for Obama - Hope piece. This one was inspired by Willy's playful exuberance, his passion for the water, and his obedience training expertise. I also wanted to incorporate the feeling of springtime in Virginia, where the Nicolas family lives, as well as Buffy's favorite colors.
Buffy's response: WOW! OH WOW!
Made me feel like the collage is a success.
Thank you to the super talented photographer, Lee Anderson, who took the black and white photo of Willy and allowed me to use it in this piece. And to Donna, his wife and business partner, who helped coordinate the process.
I also put the Willy collage on a line of greeting cards, journals, t-shirts, mugs and more. Visit my online store to see all the products. Here are some of my top sellers:
My clever sister Sheila Cameron designed these "In Stewart We Trust" T-shirts. I like the ones for dogs, but she has styles for men, women, kids, and babies here. Thank God for Jon Stewart, the voice of reason during our "economic turmoil" or as The Daily Show calls it, "the clusterf@#k to the poorhouse."
Hang in there readers. I am trying to will dog art into the recession-proof category. Any thoughts?
CafePress has introduced kelly green shirts just in time for St. Patrick's Day. Artist Donna Yuen of Dogs Ink seized the opportunity and made "Irish for a Day" designs for dozens of breeds. Here are a few of my picks based on readers' dogs. Find your breed here.
