Star Struck & Blue: Four-Legged Art

4 Jul

This is a special post because it combines the three days of my usual weekly blogging themes, and rolls them all into one post for this week. Enjoy!

It is a post that highlights the theme of the TWO-CENT Tuesday post because it is an inexpensive creative idea.  It also highlights the theme of the usual “TNT” This-n-That post because it highlights a random creative project and it also fits nicely into the FEATURE theme, even though it is not a project blogged about on Friday.

Painted pup with painted toes!

Community friends in Jacksonville, North Carolina own and operate Town & Country Pet Center, Inc. Barry Sanders and his wife Barb Sanders provide superior service and value at a reasonable price. Located at 850 Bell Fork Road, they have been in business since April, 1995.  Because they personally have determination as business owners they also are in tune with what their customers need, want, and expect whether they are people customers or actual animal clients with fur or feathers.

The focus of Club Creative Studio’s blog is to focus on sharing creativity.  While I highlight Barry’s and Barb’s business, you may think that I will write about their creative grooming salon, the fun pet toys that they stock in the store, or maybe even the variety of the fabric print on their dog bed selections.  While I could elaborate on those items/accessories, I am not.  Instead, there is one service that stands out as being creative in a new ways offering: DOG DYEING!  That’s correct.  Got a dog with a colorful personality and want it to match your creative whim?  Turn it a new color!  It’s a safe trend the professional groomers can offer to your life.  You can appreciate your dog as a moving canvas of sorts!  Art on 4 legs!

Meet Lilly, she is Janet, Gabriel and, Kinsey’s dog how adorable is she?

Are you a holiday lover?  Do you have a specific holiday that you would like your dog to celebrate right along side of you? 

Oscar- He's no grouch because he is beautiful!

Maybe this “Star-Spangled Pup” will set the neighborhood bar-b-que  in the right mood!  Introducing Oscar, Marie, Matt and Ronnie’s Dog, he got the right texture hair for use of the groomers’ “blow pens” which contain the safe pigment used for the various stencils designed on the dog’s body.


Color-safe paints are designed to design your pet.

This is an additional element I noticed that was sparked by the creativity of others.  Thanks Rebecca and Janet for the photos.
The challenge for you today is to simply continue to look around for the creative aspects in our world- there are many to find and enjoy!

I try to find the creative aspects daily as well as focus on creating Art That Sets You Apart, everyday as well.  Enjoy hunting for the pet themed necklaces that I have available at our online storefront, they are fun and colorful, just like a painted puppy!

    I wanted to thank you for the wonderful blog. We really enjoyed working with Oscar. Thanks for bringing him in Marie. I’m happy to hear he was a hit. We actually did use temporary color on him. It should fade out or wash out the next time he gets a bath. We also use semi permanent for a longer lasting effect. We can do whatever fits your needs. Thanks again ladies for the experience.

    An innovative business can make our life interesting as well as our pets! I love when someone is brave enough to “color outside the lines”!

    I am sure Oscar the hound dog was the hit of the neighborhood gathering. Let us know how long one application lasts, Marie. Also, let’s figure out how we can get the DOUG’S CAR CARE logo onto him for some free walking advertisement publicity!

    The pet center uses special formulated paints and the hair is colored not the skin per se, they “paint” it onto the hair by hand and use blow-pens and stencils for areas. All safe/tested methods for the animal.

    Thanks for another great blog on adding color & art to our lives! Hats off to Becca & Barb to setting themselves apart:)

    I think they used the pet dye product on Oscar and applied it using stencils and blowpen. The dye is actually on his fur and not his skin and hasn’t had any adverse side effects.

    He was the hit of the block party!

    Is the paint on the dogs like face paint on children? I hope it does not have a negative effect on their skin
    My favourite holiday combines our wedding anniversary with the day that NZ celebrates the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi between the Maori and the British
