Lady’s Successful Story

Being all alone, in a shelter, can’t be a very pleasant experience for a sociable creature. Unfortunately, it happens more often than needed, for all the wrong reasons.

Some love the idea of a puppy, but can’t handle the fully grown dog. Others adopt a dog only to fill an empty space in their life. Some simply don’t have the time for a dog, and still, they want one. When it gets too hard and busy, regardless the reason, the sad conclusion is that the dog ends up in a shelter, wondering what happened.

Lady has been my shelter dog for the past 2 months. She arrived from a very sad situation, from a home which put her out of balance. Owner with emotional issues and being abused as a puppy equals unstable dog. Unfortunately this put her chances for adoption down to zero.

Gaining the confidence of a damaged dog is an amazing moment. A dog who doesn’t trust people, is a dog which can’t find a home. This is why all my effort was put, during the dog walks, into bringing back the pup she really is.

Going from walking in circles around the shelter in order to build up confidence, to walking longer distances, to walking with multiple people, to playing fetch, Lady went from a fearful dog, to an amazing pup, goofy and happy, ready for a new home.

The day finally arrived, and I’m so happy to know she got the loving home she deserves. To celebrate her success, I had to paint one of our favorite moments together. As she always loved to climb on me and be held, I think this picture says everything about our beautiful connection. 🙂

Thank you for being my doggy for 2 months and good luck in your life’s journey, precious pup!

Kisses for the Doggy

Adopting a dog from a shelter is a very kind gesture. Opening your heart and home to an older dog, gives a very special pup a second chance at a normal life. And why not? All dogs deserve one!

To celebrate Doefes’ adoption, I made this painting for my friend, of them two enjoying a nice day in nature.

I wish you both a wonderful, long and happy life together, full of amazing adventures! Good luck, dear Doefes and have a great time with your new mommy!

Whoever said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, definitely never owned a dog

First week with a dog

The first week spent with my adorable pup just flew by!

Adopting a dog was the best decision I made lately. My life became so much more beautiful, in just a few days time.

And Lisa is absolutely fantastic. I am amazed by the speed and smoothness with which she allowed me in her heart. Such a well behaved and sweet pup! She keeps on surprising me everyday with what she does.

I don’t think I ever saw a dog to adapt so fast to any situation. You can drive or walk with her anywhere and she is happy to be with you. She follows me around the house like an eagle, and doesn’t get scared by loud noises, made by the vacuum cleaner, washing machine, or other appliances, which means it is very easy to have her around.

I love it when I work at my computer and get an adorable puppy face, looking up at me. I adore her funny yoga stretching pose, belly rub position, morning kisses, smart eyes and gentleness.

A perfect fit for the ‘dog shaped hole’ in my heart! She got in there and left paw prints all over the place. Looking forward to even more sweet moments spent together 🙂

Introducing my adorable pup, Lisa

20141023_2306366After years of waiting, THE moment is finally here. I’m very proud to let you know I finally have a dog! Her name is Lisa, and she’s an adorable 12 year old Husky Labrador Mix.

I didn’t have in mind to get a dog anytime soon, but when we met, she adopted me, and the rest is history.

Welcome to the family, sweet Lisa! We’ve very happy to have you here.
