Dog Art of a Special Vacation WITH Dog!

Jun 27, 2020

This dog art of a special vacation WITH dog was commissioned to remember a fun family time together in Maui. Chancellor, the daschund, sure looked like he was enjoying himself, doesn’t he?

I’ll be sharing Chancellor’s custom dog art created for his dad and will then share some tips for vacationing with your dog.


There are three etched intaglio prints in this series of 3 portraits to hang on the wall together. Mom sent in her favorite 3 phone photos for me to etch, ink and run through my Grammy’s printing press.

I LOVE the titles chosen for their dog art! Here is “Weeny Roast:” Chancellor relaxing in the sun on dad’s lap at the beach.

The second print of Chancellor enjoying the Maui sun is titled, “No Ka Oi,” meaning “the best” in Hawaiian.

The third handmade etched print is titled “Chancellor’s Maui.” What a lucky dog, right?!

Chancellor and his wisdom whiskers look very loved and blessed to be able to vacation with his parents. 


Sometimes we are lucky enough to be able to bring our dog with us on vacation.
