Dog Doodles at the Uptown Market

bink will be doodling dog portraits at her booth this Sunday--June 21st--from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the first (of 4) Minneapolis Uptown Market. Besides art, local denizens will be selling plants, food, and other things you can give your father if you forgot to get him anything for Father's Day.

The market runs along 29th Street (parallel to Lake St. & the Greenway bike trail), from Dupont Ave. (by Rainbow Grocery) to Lyndale Ave. South.

Bring your dog along for an on-the-spot quickie ($20, cheap!), or send Lucinda a photograph to doodle from (same price + $5 handling and postage).

Note: All dog breeds and dog-like creatures welcome! Wombats, pot-bellied pigs, and Gorns are all well within the limits of bink's doodling ability. Cats, regrettably, not so much...

You have conditioned me now so that every time I see that type of dog I call it a "Joop" in my mind. It just seems the perfect name for that breed.

You are right! That is Jooooooop!
You may know, the breed is wire-haired fox terrier, like Snowy in TIntin or Asta in The Thin Man movies.

I actually didn't know that! But I'm glad I do now, although I shall continue to announce "JOOPDOG!" to the world when I see one. :)
