If there's one thing Fido is surprisingly skilled at, it's the four R's: reducing, reusing, & recycling. Take, for example, the scrumptious, safe for canines, food scraps sprinkled over your counters, kitchen floors, and dining room carpets. Without your favorite furry four-legged vacuums, many of these yummy bits would get sucked up by our arch nemeses, aka. real vacuums, and trashed.
However, that's not where it ends. That pink polka dotted sock you cannot seem to find a mate for? Just about every canine bachelor I know will readily keep her company. How about that old, outdated, blanket you want to get rid of? That, my silly hairless friend, is a perfectly good dog bed scrunched up, one we may or may not, to your dismay, abandon our actual beds for.
Let me get to the point. A pile of scraps and bits is a doggy treasure trove, and we can appreciate any human who recognizes this, like collage artist Maritza Hernandez. She reuses paper, something we canines are advised not to eat, especially if it's due tomorrow. With Hernandez's hand, paper bits unite to paint strikingly vivid portraits of hooded Westies, smiling Pugs, laughing Pitbulls... We recommend that you not only view her awe-inspiring body of work and maybe even purchase a print, but to also take her lead the next time you start to walk a piece of paper towards the waste basket, will you?
