Tonight on TV: Cajun Pawn Stars' Blue Dog Days
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
Tonight, Cajun Pawn Stars breaks from their normal assessments of swamp boats and Civil War memorabilia to delve into the artsier side of collecting with one of New Orleans’ most ubiquitous canines. Whether he’s in his Saints jersey or his colorful pink tie, George Rodrigue’s Blue Dog is a New Orleans symbol that’s virtually impossible to miss. In this week's episode, George’s son Jacques is making a guest appearance to determine whether or not one alleged owner of a Blue Dog original is the real thing.

Walk the Faubourg
The Faubourg Marigny Improvement Association hosts its annual home tour today until 4 p.m., with Washington Square Park serving as the epicenter. This year, the tour doubles as a chance to peek inside the spots where creative minds lay their head. Among the featured homes are those of Blue Dog creator George Rodrigue, filmmaker-author Glen Pitre (Hurricane on the Bayou, Cigarettes and Nylons) and author Troy Gilbert (Dinner with Tennessee Williams). Other than offering a chance to checkout how these notables' gardens grow, the event serves as a tribute to the neighborhood fixture Lloyd Sensat, who often showed up at these types of gatherings dressed as Bernard de Marigny. He was also partial to suspenders.
Blue Dog Artist Gets Eagle
In certain scenes, George Rodrigue's Blue Dog displays an aptitude in nature few cartoon characters have ever shown. Turns out, the ubiqutious dog comes by it naturally. When he was younger, Rodrigue became an eagle scout. Now, at age 67, Rodrigue will be further honored as a distinguished Eagle. The award is given to Eagle Scouts who have gone on to be successful in the hike of life. Now that Rodrigue has gone as high as Boy Scouts will allow him, there's only one option left. The blue dog himself is rumored to be starting Weblos soon.
Blue Dog Blah-Blahs
Even Andy Warhol was "...afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning." Replace meaning with value, and you've got today's debate posed over at The Chicory. Lance "Varg" Vargas questions the recent use of George Rodrigue's infamous Blue Dog on the cover of the Mardi Gras edition of a certain, NOLA-based publication. For Vargas, the sight of the canine likeness brings to mind the fact that there are other artists in New Orleans that don't typically get Rodrigue's level of exposure. But, after all, as Warhol also said: "Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?" Read the full letter here.
Blue Dog: The App!
Love him or hate him, there is no denying that George Rodrigue and his Blue Dog are just about impossible to avoid in NOLA. But, maybe, just maybe, one demographic fell through the cracks. That's right... kids. Well, now, your children can also experience the Blue Dog. Well, only if you bought your kids an iPad or iPhone. But, if you did, they can now play the Blue Dog Counts,
The Casual Thief
Merely seeing local artist George Rodrigue's iconic blue dogs freakin'. everywhere. apparently wasn't enough for one man. The still-on-the-loose thief apparently took Rodrigue's recent public art push to mean that the public can take Rodrigue's art. As Rodrigue met with a client Friday at his Royal Street gallery, he apparently didn't see two of his latest dogs -- worth tens of thousands of dollars -- fly off the wall. The would-be thief walked into the back of the gallery where he was obscured from view, and put two paintings in a shopping bag. The appended, sort of boring security video reveals that the thief looked in Rodrigue's direction, pretended to check out some fliers, and walked out without even being greeted. So much for customer service protocol, eh George?
