Ten years ago Fat Dog came alive.
I carved Fat Dog's portly lines out of soft linoleum, creating a symbol of fun and friendliness. Fat Dog first made his public appearance at a pizza parlour in Humboldt County, CA.
His bulbous body was passed over the counter, attached was "Your shoes are almost as adorable as you" scrawled in inked pen.
Fat Dog's sweet simplicity was a welcome reminder of genuine connectedness and kind gestures. By bringing back the art of the handwritten note and spreading kindness, Fat Dog spreads love in every form.
