"This rug is of my son, Patrick, and our dog, Logan, at Balsam Lake, ON. They were playing a game where Patrick kicked the ball for Logan, and when the dog missed the ball, Patrick had to lift the dog into the canoe to go and fetch the ball. The canoe makes it a uniquely Canadian version of soccer. I like that my son’s attention is on the task at hand--getting the ball--but Logan has eyes only for Patrick. It’s a rug about the devotion that a dog has for his master. "
