Today Purebredbreeders.com brings you the story of Smudge (that's the dog's name, really.)
How She Stole The Show
Seven-year-old Smudge is a longnose fox terrier belonging to Tim Storrier. Storrier is an artist and the 2012 Archibald Prize winner for his piece; a self portrait titled "Histrionic Wayfarer" which features Smudge. For the non-art analyzing type, "Histrionic Wayfarer" is a painting of a figure (inspired by another artist's work) whose back is laden with everything he owns or treasures. This of course is why Purebredbreeders.com is warmed by the fact that Smudge sits at the very top of the figure's possessions (talk about a statement!). Storrier decided to take the star dog along with him to collect his $75,000 prize, but Smudge who would not be outdone made a quick dash to the stage, beating her master to the punch as he walked up to collect his prize.
