Sadie is our 7 year old PERFECT, FLAWLESS Japanese Chin/Papillon mix. She doesn’t generally bark, get in the trash or chew objects. She is excellent with people of all ages! Almost therapeutic! We really can’t see life without her- however she does have one obsession, a defective trait. She likes to watch her parents during VERY inappropriate times. We have attempted putting her out of the room on several occasions, however, she only scratches, whines, howls, whimpers and knocks for re-entry repetitively! When she is allowed back in she immediately hops on the end of the bed and looks away only to refocus her attention back on us once the “activity” resumes. She always takes a seat at the very end of the bed!!!!
We have come to accept the fact that our perfect little girl is a voyeur and if this is her only flaw we can live with it, because we simply cannot live without her.
Apple is a 3 yo, 14.1 hand Mustang filly living in Northern Calvert County, MD. She was saved from a home with five other mustangs that were starving to death by Freedom Hill Horse Rescue. Her mother, Takoda, was nursing Apple and another foal while she herself was severely underweight. The other foal’s dam had died prior to the rescue arriving on the scene. Apple has been with us since she was a few months old. She is extremely playful, curious and confident. She has had over 30 days of professional training to get her started with basic ground work skills and the beginning stages of under saddle work and requires an experienced horse person who is familiar working with young horses to further her training.
Elizabeth Ellis, over at @LizzerTweets is an artist who is trying to promote awareness for rescues. She is currently working on a project where every week, for the entire year of 2015 she will be painting an adoptable animal currently in a shelter. She posts the painting, making a video about it on youtube, tweeting, etc every week. At the beginning of 2016, there will be an exhibition of all 52 paintings at an Ohio art gallery, after which the paintings will be mailed to either the shelter who still has the animal, or hopefully, the family who has adopted the animal. I’m calling it the year of 52 rescues. Go take a look at all the cool paintings she’s done so far! You can also find more artwork over at her blog!
