Pup Love: The Wegman Dogs Are the Perfect Wednesday Pick-Me-Up!

Whether you grew up laughing at SNL or Sesame Street, the Weimaraner-focused work of William Wegman surely captured your imagination. Spanning mediums, from photography and paintings to film and now even children’s lit, Wegman’s artwork turned to dogs in the early ’70s and ’80s with his first subjects, Man Ray and Fay Ray.

Often sweet and personal, and at other moments uniquely surreal, his portfolio has also welcomed the generations of canine models that descended from his original camera-friendly companions – Battina, Crooky, Chundo, Chip, Bobbin, Candy, and Penny.

While the ModDogs continue their getaway, we suggest stirring up a mid-week smile with a fresh cup of coffee and some of our favorite glimpses of the Wegman dogs!

    Love this! He had an exhibit in Sweden last Summer. It was fantastic and of course, filled me with sentimentality because he was both a part of my children’s childhood + my own!
