Nelson Atkins: Dogs on the lawn event

An outdoor event for dogs at the Nelson-Atkins Museum! Originally scheduled for March 23, Dogs on the Lawn has been rescheduled for April 6 due to weather. Here is the description from the Nelson-Atkins' facebook page:

The event includes:

- PAW PAINTING:- Your pet will be able to create its own 'work of art' with its Paw Prints.

- DIY doggie T-shirts: :- Use templates designed by KCAI students to cut, tie and apply designs for customized T-shirts for your dog.

- A unique photo Op for dogs and their owners:- You and your dog can get your heads photographed inside a life-size Cut-out of Joseph-Siffred Duplessis' "Portrait Of Madame Freret Déricour", for a very unique Photo Op.

- ... and more !!!

It's free and we ask that dogs are kept on their leashes.

    I didn't RSVP with MLD, but I was indeed there and met only members who're in my group as well. Still I thought I'll share my pictures with this group as well. Of course I may have run into a lot of others too, but I may only know you by your dogs! :)

    As I said before, I have buttons that can be worn on you or your dog. I had a sign but it blew away. I need to meet someone who will help me, it is hard to do alone. I agree, I often feel alone too, but at least it is a good time for you and your dog...

    I am so sorry I was not able to make it. Kelli cut her arm open in the back yard. Not sure what she cut it on, but it skinned her. She is ok, but scared the begeebies out of me! Sounds like it was a success and fun. Hopefully, next time.

    We did the art, was exhausting with 2 big dogs, the art wasn't Picasso but they looked like artists with paint all over them:) That was fun but could have used a couple extra hands.

    Was a great event. Accident ally ran into 2 women from the group and visited for a few minutes. Not at all what I thought it would be. Wouldn't it be helpful to wear tags or put up a sign or something? I thought part of the reason was to meet people of like mind and get to know them. This is why I quit going to meetup groups. You usuallu end up alone at the function.

    We went also but didn't know who was with the group. Was anyone successful in getting your dog to be an ARTEEST? :) Mine wasn't buying it.

    Had a great time at the Dogs on the Lawn event today! I hope they do it again next year. Maybe we could wear something that lets us know who are fellow "Must Love Dogs" members.

    I was there I met you and Titan and numerous others. Great Day but windy. My sign blew away and Brutus the Great Dane got it for me, however when he gave it back it wasn't much of a sign anymore. Giant Thanks to the Nelson, KCAI vendors and volunteers... Most of you all dog lovers!!!
    please post pictures.

    Titan (Giant Alaskan Malamute) had a great time, but we weren't really sure who was there from the Meetup group?

      Last vet visit had him at 170lbs and he's furry so we get a lot of "that's the biggest dog I've ever seen!"

      I am. I say it and sent a RSVP to it too. I actually have another dog, but all three would be too much for one person.
