Kooky for Cake and Coloring Books

The gallery was filled with toots of noise makers and whoops of laughter as we celebrated 22 years. It was gaiety at its best! Then I met Tippy. The loveable hound lumbered into the shop and headed straight to the hub of joyful guests. With a frisky yap he drew everyone’s attention.

“He’s begging for a party hat,” the owner, Joyce, a regular customer, said. 

In unison the crowds' mouths dropped open. “The dog will wear a party hat?” I asked uncertain that I’d heard correctly.

“You bet! Tippy always wants to join in!” Joyce added.

I picked up a hat from the punch table and crouched near Tippy. He scurried up next to me, his tail wagging wildly. I slipped the hat on the pup, and in return he gave me a big slurpy kiss on the cheek. 

“Cake is his favorite, too,” Joyce said.

Sure enough, I set a piece on the floor and seconds later Tippy had his cake plate spinning in circles, licking it clean. He ruffed again and I swear he yapped Happy Anniversary! Tippy truly is a work of art!

Whereas, our shop's treasured picture framer, Lisa Lancaster, is also a gifted artist. She painted Tippy, the "party" animal, along with other whimsical pet portraits.
