An artist, a rescue dog, and a second chance

An Artist, a rescue dog, and a second chance…

Good Morning!

Yesterday, I posted my sister’s second chance story about how she rescued her latest dog, Dallas. She recently shared the ‘prisma’ portrait that artist, Victoria Watson made for her.

Anyone else have special photos, drawings done of their animals? Signing off to take Cooper for his daily walk before we both sink into the sidewalk from the muggy scorcher outside!
