If you could train a dog to paint, do you think then that the dog ever thinks to itself, "if I should change careers will I earn more treats performing other tricks?"

Polo's work has very good spatial arrangement and a zen-like handling of the paintbrush! TY, Barb.

Thanks Barb for this wonderful story, and his paintings are better than some of what is in art museums.

Thanks Barb; a nice way to get funds for a charity to help others be they animals or human. I recall there is also an elephant that paints I believe also for charities.

Yes Dandelion! There are several elephants who paint beautiful self-portraits in India! I'd give anything to have one :)

A fascinating story of an interesting animal artist. I have also seen items on painting cats and a variety of other animals getting into creativity.

Noted and shared. What a charismatic Paw-casso! And I see there's a bit of Kandinsky and Joan Miró in Polo's strokes too :) Thank you so much for posting, sweetie.

Great story and a riot to have a standard poodle in a beret and painting! Good idea! Polo is smart (as poodles are) and beautiful! A charity is always a fine recipient of these funds...ty Barb!
