Art is never wrong

So I fell into a "10 things acrylic painters do wrong" rabbit hole on youtube. I'm totally doing all the things wrong. Okay, not all the things but maybe some of them. And depending on the video maybe none of them. I stopped painting for a long time because I thought...

Grief Day 499

I read a post at 3am from a woman whose dog is really sick. She was questioning whether or not it was a good idea to visit him while he's being hospitalized. I knew immediately what I wanted to tell her. GO BE WITH HIM! But, I didn't want to scare her. That's my own...

I fell in love with the puppy quickly. The day after she arrived she started having seizures. We thought we were going to lose her and I have never been so afraid. She's a miracle baby though and even in her 2.5 pound body, she held on and started to improve every...

Ohana

Yeah, so I was picking up that one puppy yesterday and got a call that she couldn't be found. I was so devastated. The thought of a blind and possibly deaf little 6 or 7 week old puppy, outside roaming who knows where? I was just sick over it. I had never even met...

Puppy Monday?

Or how rescue works. -- Him: Who is this? Our next foster! No really, who is this? No really, our next foster. No seriously. She is cute. What's her story. Where is she going? Remember when we discussed fostering a few times a year when the situation was right?...
