It's a Dog's Life - the London Underground seeks dog photographs

Platform for Art celebrates the Year of the Dog

"To celebrate the
Chinese Zodiac Year of the Dog 2006, Platform for Art and the Photographers' Gallery are delighted to present ten portraits of dogs and their owners by photographer Suki Dhanda. These photographs will be displayed in poster frames at London Underground stations across zones 1 - 3 for two months."

However, "Platform for Art is also inviting the public to submit photographs of friends and family with their dogs for a special exhibition on the Platform for Art website. Visitors to this website will be able to submit their photographs between 29 January and 28 February 2006. The selected pictures will then be exhibited on the site for one year."

I might give it a try as I know a few people with dogs, but in the meantime here's my own dog related/ Tube related pictures:

Dog at Waterloo London Underground Station

I saw this huge dog last summer and never had a chance to blog it until now! Looks like the lady petting it should have been a "London Underground Fashion Victim" submission at the time!

Dog Coats made from London Underground Seat Upholstery

I wasn't sure what these items in the London Transport Museum shop were first of all. They looked a bit like bags but with openings at each end - which wouldn't make sense. Then the penny dropped and I remembered that some dog coats had been made from London Underground seat upholstery or moquette and here they were!

Finally, I just like to call this picture taken on the District Line last week "Dog Tired"
