Where Best Friends Are Welcome (framed) by Bonnie Marris
Across the English countryside are scattered pubs dating from 800 to 2000. This particular one is from 1300! This man’s loyal friend is lying patiently beside the table while his master shoots a round of darts.
When queried about allowing dogs in the pub, the proprietor responded, “Well, you can’t very well lock your best friend out, now can you?”
Bonnie Marris has taken an unusual path into art; she developed her talent by portraying animals “from the inside out.” While she was a student at Michigan State University, Bonnie illustrated several major books. One volume she worked on was a leading expert’s mammalogy text that contained several hundred drawings and detail studies. This massive project attracted the attention of noted zoologist George Schaller, who invited Bonnie to prepare the art for posters that would support his worldwide rare animal relief programs.
