Hank

Hank is a Boston Terrier/English Bulldog mix and the silliest dog around. He loves running after an orange ball at the park, swimming at Cherry Beach (even though he’s not very good at it), and making nests out of pillows and blankets on the couch. He’s the best cuddler and is very loved.

I’m finishing up #the100dayproject with an image of Smitten. Who is the reason for this adventure.

I didn’t realize that hitting the goal of 100 would be so emotional for me. The busyness of getting a dog drawn each day and the wonderful stories I got to post has been a tonic for the loss of my best girl. I thank everyone for their generosity. It has been a pleasure to draw such beauty and share it here with an audience as dog crazy as I am.

Smitten is my heart. Her short time with me a joy; she made love visible.

Bruiser was an owner surrender to Rescue Dogs Match, and I was the lucky person to foster him. He came to me at the age of 11, no front teeth and his tongue hanging out of his mouth. People came to meet the little 7 pound chihuahua with their arms outstretched, extended long painted fingernails, massive unknown monsters and he was so scared he’d run away. He would run away to me. He wanted to be with me. Soon after I stopped sending cute pictures of him to the rescue. I didn’t need another dog I told myself. He wanted to sleep on my bed, sit on my lap while I watched tv, danced when it was walk-time. I finally got the message and adopted him. He’s 14 now, with a bad heart and expensive meds to keep him alive and brings me joy every moment I am with him. I hope he lives forever.

Sandy was rescued by a friend, and came to me at 3 months. She’s a strong little bully cross. I was amazed when I saw that golden, happy little face for the first time. She is a perfect beauty, and has been a ray of sunshine since Day One. She is immensely charming and has many friends and admirers, both 2-legs and 4-legs. She will be 9 this year, I can’t believe it.

I wanted to share a picture of my dog Penny. A little back story to Penny.

She is a rescue from Mexico and she was found on a ranch in Mexico. When they found her she was covered in tics and her eye was so badly damaged that she needed surgery to have it removed. Additionally, she was kept in quarantine for 30 days as well.

She is a very timid creature. She meets strangers, but she is the most loving dog. She gives tons of licks and cuddles.

Sheffield always had a smile on her face which was genuine…she loved people and the outdoors…especially snow and water… She was a great hugger and a gentle soul.

When Benny was 11 months old, he was surrendered for euthanasia due to a hip dislocation. Luckily the veterinarian opted to do the surgery to save his leg, and Ben was fostered until he was ready for a new home. Lucky for me, too. This little monster is the happiest, friendliest, always ready to go, and best partner in crime I’d been looking for. Here we are five years later, and I’m so glad he’s part of my life.
