Walking the dog
Correct; that is not a dog. We must assume, however, that it is a pet. It has been suggested that people resemble their dogs but I'm beginning to think that it is less a matter of the comfort of the familiar than an exploration through self portraiture.
Here I'm exploring the thought that pets can be more than companion or accessory but rather an unconscious art form of self expression. A sort of "I don't know art but I know what I like".
and here's a late link we just discovered, Top 10 Celebrity Pets on Nerve. When you click through to Martha's dog, scroll all the way down--a doggie body bag tied with a ribbon bow.
