About the Contest and Furry Friends Bus:

Our valley is a beautiful place to call home for locals, visitors, students, friends, and family alike. Most of the folks who represent our community in Crested Butte also bring forth their beloved furry friends! Even if people don't own a dog or cat of their own, it seems that Crested Buttian pets are something we can all relate to and love; just as we do for biking, wildflowers and the mountains.

The Furry Friends Bus will celebrate these characters -- all shapes, sizes & colors! The painting will be bright and whimsical while also maintaining a balance of composition. When this bus rolls by, it will bring smiles to our faces, just as our furry companions can do for us. There are some legendary dogs in Crested Butte that are just as important members of our community as their human copartners -- of course, we'll reserve room for Mr. Jingles too!

With over 15 years of creative consulting experience, Heather Bischoff is excited to add this bus mural to her portfolio of public work. Pet portraits will be compiled by observations of the furry friends in this valley in addition to two very special animals that will be the source of inspiration for back panel of the bus. One (1) cat and one (1) dog will be selected to serve as a model for the artist rendering -- not represented identically. Artist reserves the rights to all creative elements of the mural. Inside the bus, Mountain Express has agreed to feature a "Pet of the Month" from PAWS to help us with our adoptable animals.

You can enter your pet for a chance to be represented on the bus by pledging the campaign to benefit PAWS. The fee per pet entry is a minimum $10 donation and pledges must be submitted by February 12, 2016. A winner will be announced on or before February 29, 2016. This is a fantastic and fun opportunity to support a great cause in Crested Butte. Proceeds will be shared with PAWS of Crested Butte and the artist. If you have questions, please send them to pawscrestedbutte@gmail.com or call 435-225-0240. Whether you're local or a frequent visitor, we welcome your submissions and best of luck!

This little kitty is Dharma, perched atop a round of wood that was last winters heat. She is the perfect combination of rodent slayer, chicken and dog tormentor, couch potato, attention hog, and cuddly, loving feline friend. A twice-thrown-away-cat, she rescued me as much as I rescued her. After my former kitty love fell pray to a coyote, I needed a cat to fill in that gap and Dharma is her name. I saw her devious eyes on Petfinder.com and knew there was a connection. She was from Delta, had been abandoned with her two kittens, taken to a shelter, adopted and later returned to the shelter. And then we met. Now she comes when called, follows like a dog, loves to gallop through the house, dangle from my pantleg, pounce on the dog, and hide while plotting her next attack. I thought this bundle of love and attitude just might deserve a chance to adorn a bus with her mischievous face. 1 year ago
