Spidey the Spotty Dog

Dalmatian Spider

I’ve been tagged on Facebook about a million times with this photo in the last month.

Everyone who knows me, knows the first tag is an, “I dare you.”

Second tag is a “Double Dog Dare!”

Third tag and more - Challenge accepted.

(And btw I couldn’t find the original source for this photo, so if it is yours, please let me know so I can give you credit.)


First went for a nice walk. Elvis can look less-than-dignified at times. So I take a photo any opportunity I can when he is looking his handsome self.


I think part of the reason that top photo has gone so viral is because the dog looks miserable in it. It adds some humor. This is as sad as Elvis looked during the entire process.

Because he loves any opportunity to be near me.

To give me kisses.

And hugs.

And pretty much we smeared the heck out of my painstaking paint project.

So I handed him back to my lovely assistant for a couple more photos. He looks handsome as Spidey the Spotted Dog, doesn’t he?

Even perhaps, dignified in his Halloween costume?

Ruh - Roh his spidey senses are tingling. There is a “cat burglar" on the loose.

With great power there is also great responsibility. The photo session is over.

One thing I learned during this project - It is much easier to paint spiders on your Dalmatian in Photoshop than it is in real-life!
