MAKE ROOM FOR A HORSE (OR DOG) IN YOUR HEART!

January 2018 - Happy New Year!
Gone to the Dogs in the New Year!
and "Daisi's Story"


Daisi's portrait was commissioned by animal lover and dog rescuer Lara in Colorado. Capturing Daisi's deep gaze does not show that she is blind.  In fact, she seems to gaze into our hearts. I saw the depth in her doggie soul and tried to capture that on canvas. Lara tells Daisi's touching story and it is quoted here as inspiration to all of us animal lovers:

"Daisi was born in Houston TX and dropped off with a sibling at a shelter.  Daisi had distemper.  Amazingly, she survived.  A rescue group in Denver agreed to take her.  She spent about 3 months in foster care.  The rescue who had her does not typically do special needs dogs and the foster was in over her head.  Daisi was surrendered to a sanctuary and they called within 24 hours and said they couldn't handle her.  The foster retrieved her and she then ended up in a boarding facility, not a doggie day spa.  I have fostered for a number of years and was asked about taking her on.  I was dealing with my stepdad's illness at the time and was going to take a break.  When I saw her pictures and heard her story, I had to take her.  It was her last chance."

"In the middle of February in Colorado we made the 2 hour trip to Denver to pick her up.  She was being drugged (doggie Prozac) and had spent the last 30 days living in her own urine and feces.  We drove home, alternating between between heat and windows down.  Daisi was totally shut down and would not even attempt to stand.  I wasn't sure there was any quality of life there.  Her first two days here, we had to carry her outside just to go potty.  My husband slept on the floor holding her.  On about her third day, we were in the back yard and she stood and took a couple of tentative steps.  My heeler, who is always the actual foster parent, tried playing with her and she fell.  I stood by and encouraged her with tears in my eyes.  She stood back up and began to cautiously explore the back yard.  Now, almost two years later, she is a confident dog who loves to go for walks, scolds her two doggie brothers when she thinks they need it, and rules the roost. We became 'foster failures' when we adopted her a little over a year ago.  Daisi is partially blind, mildly retarded, has some neurological issues with her back legs, and is absolutely perfect just the way she is as far as her family is concerned! "

We couldn't agree more.  Daisi is absolutely perfect.
