Creative Paws

Welcome to Creative Paws. This page is our imagination station, our painting palace, our poetry parlour, our literary lounge.

We created (because we’re pretty creative ourselves) this webpage where innovative types can funnel their inventive energy into one of our doggy projects, and we particularly love projects with an emphasis on responsible dog ownership, and how to be safe around dogs.

 

For example, this poem was written by the 1st class students of Clifferna NS in Cavan. Isn’t it fabulous? Our Mighty Madraí make wonderful muses, and we would love to see what sonnets they might inspire.

 

So if you feel like writing an Ode to Odie, or a Limerick on Lucy, send it in to [email protected] we’d love to read it, and who knows, it might find its way onto our website…

 But perhaps you paint, not with words, but with the traditional materials. You’re more into aesthetic creativity. Well we love your creative energy just as much. You can sketch a drawing of one of our dogs (or indeed your own?) to share? In fact, we received these stunning sketches of Odie and Piper from an anonymous artist a few weeks ago. Aren't they fantastic?

            

Or if you’re more into colouring than drawing we have you sorted. You can download our Mighty Madraí colouring sheets from the main Kid's Space page, and put your own stamp of colour to them. Email them to [email protected]

We can’t wait to see the results!
