On the second Thursday of each month The Garden Cafe in Dade City hosts a Yappy Hour. We visited in May and, in spite of the rain, there was a nice crowd. The Cafe is open Monday through Friday from 11a until 4p and Sundays from 11a to 3p. They will start serving breakfast in September. They also have a Pooch Menu, with specialties just for dogs. We were told that Howard’s Flea Market in Homosassa Springs is very friendly for dogs. The Garden Cafe’s annual Yappy Hour Fall Howl-O-Ween will be Thursday, October 23.

Beth York Wolf’s work is pieced paper art, composed of many layers of cut bits of paper. She uses old books as her palette of paint, working with the pet’s image until she creates the desired effect. BethYork.com

The New Barker partnered with Morean Arts Center, St. Petersburg to bring the first annual Art of Dog Art Show to life - a one-day exhibition of all things dog in art. Fourteen artists displayed their works, from oils to acrylic to sculptures and ceramics. Fun for us was meeting three cover artists (finally, face-to-face) for The New Barker including Samuel Taylor of Tampa (Winter, 2012), Colleen Thompson of Boca Raton (Spring 2014) and Malanda Schmitz of Safety Harbor (this issue).

Beth Whitlow traveled from Arkansas to exhibit. She and her husband Josh have family in Pinellas County, so they made it a working vacation. The richness of oil paint allows her to create a variation of textures that look like fur, silk, velvet and feathers which she incor- porates into her pet portraits. Her Speak to Me Series focuses on the juxtaposition of the fantasy world and reality while providing a refreshing commentary on the canine intellect. BethWhitlow.com
