My friend Kimberly is an amazing artist and fabulous woman, as evidenced by this painting of a dog having more fun than I will ever have in my whole life. That dog is an asshole. But he reminds us to have fun no matter how ridiculous we look. That asshole dog is my hero. And so is Kimberly because her proceeds go to helping animal welfare groups. Check her out. Buy a painting. Commission a portrait. Save a furiously happy asshole’s life.
