[Don't forget to check out our extra special adoptables today after the DUCK TAPE entries.]

We have been amazed by the DUCK TAPE creations you have submitted.  And today's self-portraits are no exception!  We hope those DUCK TAPE people are taking notice! 

Today's ARTSY FARTSY DUCK TAPE creations comes from far away lands! 

First up, from the Land Down Under compliments of Daisy, Bella and Kendra (DOWN UNDER DAISY) share their adorable self-portrait scuplture with us. 

Daisy and Bella with "Mini Me"
They tell us the secret ingredients are a toilet paper roll with popcicle sticks for legs. Genius! 

And now, from all the way Across the Pond, here is George the Lad's awesome DUCK TAPE GEORGE! 

We think this should maybe be the NEW Flat George. 
What do you think?

Are those COOL or WHAT?!  Don't they inspire you to break out the duck tape and scissors and make a DUCK TAPE SCULPTURE of yourself???  We can't even imagine how they made these without getting DUCK TAPE all stuck to their furs!  Wonder if they take commissions?

Thanks Daisy, Bella and Kendra  and George for sharing your super creative self-portrait sculptures with us!

Hold on, hold on, hang with us for another minute while we share our ADOPTABLE DOGS OF THE DAY for Mayzie's RESCUE ME HOME EVENT ~ then head over to Frankie's for more DUCK TAPE festivities!

You may recognize these adorable pups from their foster mom's blog - Peaceful Dog

Fozzie the Frog - what a ham, um, frog!

Beautiful Sandy doin' the Frog

That's right, we're featuring Fozzie and Sandy today as our adorable adoptables.  They're both living the good life right now with their foster mom, but she's just preparing them to go to their furever homes.  We met Fozzie and Sandy when their foster mom submitted their aDORable frog pose pics for our upcoming, soon-to-be-released calendar of Pitties in frog pose.  So, they're going to be famous, too!  

haha - Sandy doing a "HALF-FROG POSE"

What a happy face! 
Fozzie hanging with Lamar, his foster mom's dog, who obviously already has a furever home :) 

Fozzie and Sandy are being well-trained and getting lots of socializing by their awesome foster mom (and Lamar :) so they will make wonderful companions for a couple of lucky families.  Could that be you???  If you, or someone you know, lives in the DC area (or VA, MD) and would be interested in learning more about Fozzie or Sandy, go to Peaceful Dog Blog to learn LOTS more about them and see more adorable pics of them.  And just maybe give them a furever home!

Fangtastic ducky tape art. Great Job!

Berts Blog said...

Hey everyone, just read your request on my blog so here is your answer.

We usually put out four or five bowls on a big turntable. They are covered with their lids but the lids have little air holes in them for scent to be released easier.

Then comes the good part. (Don't read on if you are squeemish)

Then in one bowl we place a tiny itty bit of human flesh. Sometimes we will put little bits of other things like beef or disgusting road kill bits in the other bowls.

Then My Vickie gives me a command and ask me to show her which one is human scent.

Sometimes we use a drop of blood or other times we have skin and muscle that is donated for the training by people who just had surgery, like a knee replacement, or other surgeries where they cut off skin and tissue and bone.

SO have we grossed you out yet?

Sorry. But you did ask,

We call it part of the cadaver training. And we do it when we are too lazy to go out and burry stuff or when it is cold and MyVickie doesn't want to go outside.

We have stuff burried in places all over the area. Some have been burried in the last few weeks and a few have been out there for about 3 to five years.

That way I have to use all my skills to detect them after decomposition times.

So there ya go. are we still friends or do you think I am sick

Wowserz, Bert -- it's a good thing I just had my breakfast, or I might not have been hungry! Ah hahaha!

But hey, Road Dogs -- what pawsome tape art! If my mommy had more time to spare, she may have taken part in your event! ;)

Keeping my paws crossed for the doggies looking for their furever homes. :)

Everyone is so creative! And what great-looking pooches!

Pup Fan said...

That's an impressive use of duck tape!

Berts Blog said...

Cool, since My Vickie has been around since the first winds crossed the desert, she was wonderng what group your dad did the SAR with.

IT would be cool if they had ever crossed paths.


My Vickie was with Rocky Mountain Rescue Dogs and American Search Dogs. Have you heard of either one?

My hoomans say they don't trust me with duck tape (no idea why that is so), so I couldn't pawticipate in this fun contest.

Fozzie and Sandy are adorable!! I hope they find a good furever home soon.

You are so wonderful to feature our little foster buddies! And you must have worked some magic because I've gotten a couple of really awesome applications for BOTH beasts in the past few days!

The duck tape artists just blow me away with their creativity. You guys rock!
