So I made this awhile ago for the front porch but now that I have a functioning camera and I'm snowed in I thought I would share.

I always loved the cave canem mural from Pompeii. Since we have a puppy dog named Sirius Black who is a Labrador/shepherd mix who tends to be a little too friendly (he likes to jump) I thought I'd make one for the house.

 I bought a wood base and a tub of small tiles. I stained the wood base and then I glued the tiles into place with craft glue.  The tiles I used were not fired so I could break them pretty easily with a pair of heavy duty scissors. When I finished gluing them down I filled it in with grout and then sealed the whole thing to make it outdoor safe.
Here is a detail shot of the cave tiling.

And here is a picture of the ferocious Sirius puppy with his "guarding his mommy" face on :-)

I love your mosaic! I would never put up a dog sign but I guess I would make an exception for this one,

Cute dog!! My parents have a shepherd/labrador mix. She looks completely different but is an awesome dog.

I wish my lipstick was a little more ... HALLUCINOGENIC!

He promises that if you visit he will try very very hard to not make you sneeze Smiley
