Sunny, the three-year-old Bichon mix and poster child of Gallery Brown, is living the good life at the 1250 square feet space. Dina Brown adopted Sunny three years ago after the pooch had been hit by a car, "A friend of mine fostered her and put her picture on Facebook," the gallery owner explained. "She had her right arm in a cast but had the sweetest smile." Brown fell in love with the doggie instantly and quickly changed her name from 'Meg' to 'Sunny.'
The pup has made friends with all of the neighborhood dogs but is much more discreet with the customers. "She quietly comes up behind the customers and sniffs them," Brown said of her pet's way of introducing herself. When she's not following humans around she is hanging out in her favorite warm spot in the gallery's front window. Though she loves to chill out front and center, sometimes the Los Angeles heat gets to her and she moves to the gallery's settee or the cold concrete for what Brown calls her "contrast bathing."
Sunny hits her stance in that beloved window seat first thing each morning after her arrival, ready for a hard day's work of sunbathing. Despite the gallery's beautiful display of contemporary and decorative art, Sunny's bright personality and perch in the window has people constantly stopping by to ask, "How much is that doggie in the window?" Unfortunately for passersby, she's not for sale.
Sunny would like to give a special shout out to Juno, Bear, Pizza, Jasper, Cody, Maya, Ernie and Ollie. Woof Woof!
