A thousand paws of art in Tonganoxie
July 31, 2019
Monica Gee has a slew of regular furry clients at Wizard of Paws, her downtown Tonganoxie pet grooming business. Now she gets to see about 250 of them every time she gets to work. Tonganoxie artist Elizabeth Daniel painted a mural this past weekend near the front entrance. The mural celebrates many of Wizard of Paws’ regular customers, along with other dogs and cats. Daniel also took to Facebook asking for photos of dogs and cats for the mural’s consideration. Some are real, some imagined, but all now have provided some pizzaz to the south interior wall of the local business. A few even give a posthumous nod to beloved dogs that have gone to heaven, complete with halos.
