What Do Wine and Dogs Have in Common

What do wine and dogs have in common? Well, does curling up with your dog, a good book, and a glass of your favorite beverage sound appealing? What if that glass was custom painted with your dog’s likeness, like this:

I have a bit of an obsession when it comes to dogs, and especially my dog. Fidose of Reality is a health and wellness dog blog, and that means sharing products to for overall happiness of dog moms and dads.

The above glass was masterfully painted by Debbie Sampson. I first encountered Debbie’s work a few years ago while looking for custom Christmas ornaments as gifts and for myself.

Here’s what she did for my tree:

Debbie’s paintings capture motion in ways few fine artists are able to do. Self-taught and specializing in capturing the triumph and energy of professional athletic competition primarily with oil on canvas as well as graphite pieces is what sets Debbie apart. She works with every client to develop a unique piece of art, ensuring complete satisfaction and her attention to detail makes Debbie a popular choice of professional athletes, their fans and corporations involved with sports.

I connected with Debbie to ask if she and I could work together, and three lucky Fidose of Reality fans took home custom artwork of their dog from our February Dog Love Photo Contest.

I wanted a way to keep the love flowing and allow all Fidose of Reality fans to have a piece of Debbie’s artwork of their own.

In addition to wine glasses and ornaments, Debbie does custom artwork of:

Graphite pet drawings

dog drawings

Pet portraits

dog paintings


Beer glasses

What amazes us most is that she is self-taught and is able to capture the soul of the subject.

  1. Those are wonderful! My sweetie gave me wine glasses for Valentine’s Day with German shepherds etched on them… but they weren’t MY German shepherds!
