  1. Oh, this makes my heart jump! Your sketch is lovely and I’m so happy to hear of another animal rescued from a bad situation…you have really captured her fear incredibly well! I hope some day she’ll turn around and you can capture her joy?


  2. Thank you both for your comments. All of the dogs we’ve adopted over the years have been from rescue shelters or dog pounds and they’ve all made lovely companions. This one, Osa, was in a puppy mill and made to bear 2 litters before she was 2 years old. She was malnourished and ran at the slightest noise or movement when we first brought her home. We were told there were many neglected animals where she was rescued from along with many that had died and were left about.
