A Renaissance Dog–The Arts

About a zillion years ago, there were these humans who were deep thinkers and thought “a man can do all things if he will.” This thought considered man the centre of the universe, capability development was limitless. This led to the notion that ‘men should try to embrace all knowledge and develop their own capacities as fully as possible’. Now, that was a whole lot of words (as far as I’m concerned) and I think the canine world shouldn’t be left out of this definition.


Not at all.

So, I decided to begin a series to show that I, a dog, can be a renaissance man dog.

And if I can do it—so can you!

Today, we’ll work on the arts. I clearly appreciate ‘art’ (which means I don’t pee on it), so this statue caught my eye. Bionic DogI was impressed that so many little pieces of ‘stuff’ could be made into a dog. Could this be the proverbial bionic dog? Or is it just an artful display of metal this and that? That got me to thinking–what about all the little pixels that make up a photo? They’re a gazillion pieces of stuff too.

Take a blurry photo, for example.

Blurry sage

Can it be turned into a ‘work of art’?

That ball was just…


and within my grasp mouth.

And the picture was just…

B..A..D (Mom would say ‘crap’, but I was trying to be polite).



I thought and thought, and decided

YES, I can to it!

  1. Oh Sage what a great Bionic doggie sculpture…and shows their is more to a doggie than meets the eye..and APAWS for your own artwork…what a clever gal you are indeed ..hugs Fozziemum xx


  2. Sage, I believe most dogs are Renaissance Dogs. I know I appreciate art, especially some poetry…I love the way it lolls in my ears and takes me to another place, if only for a while. I love how you made art out of a “yucky” photo…it just goes to show what a little creativity can do!

  3. I thought the robot dog would be the best part of the blog. I was wrong! The art-pose is even better! So very impressed.

    Hope you’ll stop by and join us for NaNo! 😀


  4. That is awesome, Sage! Great thinking to take that crappy photo and make it into a work of art! That never occurred to me, and I have a whole lot of blurry photos, so I just may try it!
