Tilamook Cheddar, affectionately known as Tillie, a canine artist, made a stop in Harmony on Monday where she visited with area children and community members before creating some unique artwork. The 14-year-old Jack Russell terrior is in the middle of a "Tip to Tail Tour" with her crew, making her way across the United States in her mobile unit. Slim's Woodshed in Harmony was just one of many stops she was making on her tour. Next up will be stops at the Corn Palace and Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. A free will offering was collected during the show to benefit Noah's Bark animal shelter in Canton. Tillie scratches and makes impressions on a piece of watercolor paper and a piece of velum coated with pigment. The color is transfered to the paper when Tillie scratches or touches the board.
