Your dog’s fans are tired of the same old couch photos. Add a little *spice* with photos at these Chicago murals. Leash up—her followers are waiting!

1. The Happy Garage

We’re all making the same face. | Olga Bernard

Just try and stay in a bad mood next to this sunny Chris Uphues piece at Winona and Ravenswood. Bonus: it’s just steps away from Empirical Brewery if all this photoshootin’ makes your fren thirsty.

2. Selena Mural

Good thing I look good in fuschia. | Gloria Martinez

What’s better than a portrait of Selena? Five of them. Sniff out this vibrant mural by Inner City Cultura and Ascend at Canicera Maribel at Wood and Cermak in Pilsen. 

3. Greetings from Chicago Mural

Dear Grandma, please send cookies. | Stephanie Sanders

The first Greetings From mural (you can now catch ‘em all over the country!) features a series of images tourists think of when they think about Chicago—and okay, we like some of ‘em too. Snap a pic of your pup in Logan at 2226 N. Milwaukee.

4. Walter Payton and Michael Jordan Mural

Picture your legend among *the* legends. | @cstyledog

Capture 4 Chicago icons at this mural by Max Sansing: Sweetness, MJ, your dog—and Jeppson’s Malört. Located in East Pilsen at CH Distillery, one of our favorite dog-friendly Illinois distilleries.

5. Dripping Rainbow Mural

Sure wish I could see colors right about now. | Amra Rio

Brighten up pup’s day at Dripping Rainbow by Ryan Tova Katz. Grab the cuuutest pic of you gettin’ your ROY G BIV on at 1250 W. Grace.

6. Frida Kahlo Mural

Imagine what I’d do to the kitchen if I could fly. | Gloria Martinez

You already know your dog is a beautiful butterfly. Show everyone else with a pic at the 18-foot Frida Kahlo mural by Robert Valadez near 18th and Paulina directly below the Pink Line.

7. Robin Williams Mural

You ain’t never had a friend like me. | Bobby Mercader

No matter what anyone says, your pup’ll always be a prince to you. Catch this larger-than-life mural by Jerkface on the side of Concord Music Hall (just a hop, skip, and a jump from dog-friendly Pilot Project Brewing).
