"Your Dog" is a work of art
“Your Dog” is a work of art by Yoshitomo Nara (2002), fiberglass, 4/6 ed. and on display at the Palm Springs Museum of Art.
Now, my relatives have a beagle named Snoopy, of course. Snoopy behaved energetically in her youth, though now she lives a slower lifestyle in Rancho Mirage.
Snoopy has taught me a lot about dogs. They have three things of concern to them: 1) food, 2) humoring the handlers to get food, and 3) getting the handlers to go for a walk to get rid of the food. After that, life is napping.
Dogs know that the only time it is important to move is when the handlers approach the kitchen. Dogs have a wider birth in terms of seeking food opportunities as compared with cats. Cats know that the only time they need to enter the kitchen is when the can opener motor sounds.
