FEEDING time, walks, and the occasional daydream are all part of a dog’s daily schedule.
But now our canine friends have something else to make them ‘paws for thought’.
An art exhibition has opened on the city’s streets tailor-made for our four-legged friends who enjoy the finer things.
The show, called Doggie Art, takes place in Bramley and Rodley and is part of the I Love West Leeds Festival.
It includes art on lampposts along Leeds Bradford Road and Rodley Town Street.
Pictures of bones and other doggies treats are plastered at hound-height to keep the family pooch occupied on its daily walk.
Jane Earnshaw, the festival’s director, said: “We’re confident that the cultured canines of West Leeds will have a nose for a good picture.
“And they’ve got nearly four weeks of walkies to develop an appreciation of the whole collection.
“This shows we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
“There’s art for humans, so why not for dogs.”
The I Love West Leeds Festival will also include events aimed at humans such as the Big Free Festival Day on Sunday at Bramley Falls Park.
The festival day will include an inflatable theatre show by Chol Theatre, an old skool sports day and other events to delight the community.
Ms Earnshaw added: “Big Free Festival Day is packed full of performances.
“We have a big theatre show and 15 garden sheds that are decorated and act as different zones – one is a Jackanory zone where people can have a story read to them by an actor and there is the festival tattoo parlour.
“It’s all free and a great day out for the family that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.”
The I Love West Leeds Festival will run from tomorrow until Sunday, July 24.
All the events (bar the swimming pool concert) are free of charge.
