Pekingese terrier Ziggy: Talented dog painter

in Leisure

Ziggy, a fluffy Pekingese terrier, owns an incredible talent in abstract works of art. He gained fame worldwide after his owner Elizabeth Moncelli introduced Ziggy’s masterpieces to an art exhibition in California, the U.S. Ziggy was reported to start painting when he was old enough to holed a brush between his teeth. By a paintbrush attached to a paper roller, the dog painter produces wonderful masterpieces on canvas. According to Ms. Moncelli, Ziggy takes his artistic inspirations only for one or two minute at a time. Therefore, he spends several days or weeks finishing a painting. At that time, Ziggy usually takes a nap or even looks for snacks.
