Every year in New York City while the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is going on there in February there is an art sale at Bonham’s Auction House that features wonderful dog art.  For several years while I was up in NYC for the dog show I went to the auction.  It was fabulous to see so much excellent dog art in one location.
