Staycation with Dogs: 'Graffiti Safari's' and Street Art Walks

When E and I went on a big trip over the summer, we realized one of the real values of traveling is finding something interesting from another place and incorporating into our daily lives.
Just like being Tourists in our own City. But we always wanted to find a way to incorporate our favorite things with our dogs.
When we were visiting Portugal, France and Italy we realized how prominent the street art really was:
Which you might recognize if you've seen the documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop (also available on Netflix 'Watch it Now'.)
We even found Space Invaders:
Since we walk so much on a daily basis, we thought we'd all make like tourists and incorporate 'graffiti safari's' into our Daily Walks:
We do have a lot of permission walls within our neighborhoods, perfect for the pooches to pose in front of.
 Even former foster Bessie-Belle made like a model posing in front of her favorite wall.
 Plus this makes our daily walks so much more interesting!

I love the graffiti you can find. I guess my small-town area just doesn't have this kind of thing.

I love street art too! One of my favorite parts about Berlin (I spent two months there two summers ago) was the street art. So cool. (I also love seeing the familiar neighborhood sights in this post!).

This is so great! We don't have stuff like that around here... only things written on walls are mean, naughty words... nothing pretty like that!

One of my favorites is Mr. B in front of the mostly blue wall. I am seriously itching to move back to Phoenix so we can get back to exploring the city. For now we have to settle for posing in front of cacti and dirt.

We've long been inspired by urban art and have finally created a collection that pays homage to this secret addiction of ours!
