Follow my summer travels in Italy and Beyond

Hello! I suppose I should let you know that I'm in Italy for the summer. I am interning at a fabulous site-specific art collection in Tuscany for May, June and July. I will try to fit in some other traveling during this time, and then at the beginning of August I will head to either Croatia or Spain for a few days before returning to Italy to meet up with my good friend who I am taking to Rome, Florence, and Milan. For my internship placement (which I got through my university) I am required to keep a blog about my experience, so if you're interested in following along, you can find it here.

My new boytoy - Cornelius!

As promised, here are some pictures of my AWESOME new puppy Cornelius (although he's rapidly growing out of the puppy phase). Cornelius was born November 24, 2010. His mother was a Puggle (Pug x Beagle) and his father was a Shar Pei x Bullmastiff, so he's quite a unique mix, and, as a result, quite a unique character. Cornelius has many nicknames including: Corny, Corn Dawg, Horny Corny, Benjamin Button, Grandpa the Flatulent, and Little Richard Alpert. I have never had such a smart, good, HILARIOUS dog. Enjoy the pics :)

A good friend photoshopped this image of Cornelius a few days after I got him :)

Like I said in my last post, I'm on a real dog kick lately ever since I got my amazing puppy Cornelius a few months ago. Tim Flach does these AMAZING, intimate, expressive photographs of dogs that read like people portraits. Tim Flach's photos are also available in his book.
