Why we chose “Van Dog”

“Van Dog” has fascinated us for a long time, but be under no illusions… he’s no ordinary dog. He’s a true artist!

One fine summer morning, he sets off into the countryside to paint a picture. He concentrates on his work – and doesn’t let himself get disturbed when the meadow around him suddenly comes to life.
