Boston Terrier Award
“You NEED to do a Boston” the dog groomer says to me. She looks me straight in the eye and holds my gaze for minutes it seems, half smiling but with an intensity that’s almost frightening. I had walked into her dog grooming shop to show her some samples of my pet portraits and jewelry and she promptly asked me about any Boson Terriers I might have painted. “No, I haven’t painted any yet. . .but yours could be the FIRST!” I say with exuberance, trying to cover up the guilt I strangely feel for not having painted one already. What have I been thinking?!
“People would buy it up! It’s so HARD to find Boston stuff. I’m always looking for cute Boston gifts and there just isn’t any out there!” She whips out a key chain with a little Boston Terrier image and says “see” as if showing me the one treasure she’s found would make me realize how desperate the world is for cute Boston artsy stuff. Well, today my Boston Terrier lover, your prayers are answered!
