Two talented people making a life

Every love story has a beginning. For Miss Ruby and I, it began on a Valentines Day with a picture that ARC had sent. They had been looking for an adult girl dog for me ( which of course means that all of the rescues in NS were on the watch as well... but the topic of preapproved adoptions is a tale for another time)
Elsie had called the night before to see if I might be interested in a starving two year old dog they had rescued. It was too dark for a good picture but she promised to try to send me one in the morning.
As promised, the first pictures were there in the morning and the rest is history. As clear as the first pictures were, they didn't hold a candle to the lovely pictures that her foster parents sent while we were waiting for her to gain enough weight to be safely spayed. And do you know who her fosters were?
Ruby was the first of many many foster dogs that have been lucky enough to come into the care of the two wonderful folks who are holding The Shelter Dog Art Show. In fact, they also provided long term foster for Po, who is now HANDSOME HENRY .
Nor have they limited their help to fostering. Anyone who has visited either my site or Petfinder is often treated to much more beautiful pictures of the animals because Meagan and Aidas have been so very generous with their time and skills for the animals.
If I am not mistaken, the three dogs pictured on the invitation are at Metro ..... Peanut, Rocko and perhaps Hunter . To see more of their wonderful work, go to their site

What an amazing idea!! This will surely open some people up to the idea that shelter animals are beautiful. :)
