Our theme this week is “Dogs” which our hostess Nellie van Leeuwen selected and made this precious arch. What makes a the bond between our furry friend so special? We hope you will show us this week with our Gothic Arch challenge.

A bit about our hostess:

I’m very fond of dogs. I own 4 myself. Irish wolfhounds Lucca and Nigel and border terriers Gonzo and Darcy. They give me so much joy every day. Really couldn’t imagine a life without them. The lost of our Irish wolfhound Ivar in September and the arrival of puppy Nigel, now 12 weeks old made me realize even more how special the bond between dogs and humans can be. It’s this special bond that inspired me to take dogs as a theme for this weeks gothic arch challenge. I think the image I chose for my arch expresses this special relationship quite well. Let us see what dogs mean in your life or how you take them as an object for creating art!
