It's fairly safe to say that it's not your typical art exhibit. A gallery in Lakewood, Ohio is featuring artwork done by a disabled dog and its unique "Piddle Patterns."
A collection of rare artworks by Tucker, an elderly German Shepherd rescued in February, 2008 by the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs from a life of misery on a chain.
The permanent foster dog of Jim Lasher and Kara Vlach-Lasher, Tucker has found the love and security he lacked in his former life. Shortly after coming to the Sanctuary, Tucker was diagnosed with spinal mylopathy, a degenerative disease that does not allow him to lift his leg.
Not one to be burdened by adversity, Tucker found expression and creativity in his disability.
Deborah Workman from the Sanctuary for Senior Dogs says Tucker's artwork retails from $200 to $600.
