Over the weekend, we took Victory for the first time to meet some sheltie friends at the Sheltie Haven Sheltie Rescue, Inc., which is the rescue where we adopted our precious Biscuit, and the rescue organization that played a vital role in facilitating Victory’s adoption! (We also previously took Biscuit to meet the other shelties at the Sheltie Haven Sheltie Rescue, Inc., which you can view here.) Victory had a great time and the weather was beautiful! Victory did stay close by my side; and she got ‘humped’ again a few times — the male doggie friends are quite attracted to her as this is not the first time this has happened! Nevertheless, Victory loved sniffing and meeting the other sheltie friends!
There are a few shelties still in need of new homes, which I will share more information about soon!
Twist, the Sheltie/American Eskimo dog, shown below, loved playing fetch with Doug! However, Twist also loved to hang onto the ball, as you can see below! Twist is full of energy and wore poor Doug out! Twist is also literally a jumping bean, shown below!
Earlier this year I interviewed Eleonor Boström, an artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. I love Eleonor’s work, especially her Dog in a Cup series. As such, I commissioned Eleonor to make one of our little golden Victory! Last week, Victory’s Dog in a Cup arrived to us all the way from Berlin, Germany! I love little Victory’s Dog in a Cup, which is now displayed in our china cabinet among our other treasures, which sits besides the Biscuit totem; the Cheetah and Panda totem; and our family heart totem. Eleonor was wonderful to work with! Thank you so much, Eleonor, we love your work!
Below are a couple of images of Victory and I at the dog park! She loves to be held on my hip — she truly is our furbaby! Victory continues to gain more confidence each day and her sheltie furs keep coming in, which is great! She absolutely loves the dog park, and we usually go to the dog park at least once a week, in addition to our daily walks in the neighborhood, since she loves to go mingle with other doggies at the dog park! This weekend Victory is meeting new sheltie friends for the first time! We are sure that she will have a grand time!
Happy Friday and Happy Easter!

Beginning in January of this year, I began a weekly photography project with my muse, Victory! I will continue to share this project on the blog! I have also been documenting Victory’s milestones so to speak each month — you can read these here! I think that it is fun to document all of Victory’s changes, while preserving fleeting moments and memories.
Recently, we took Victory to Worthington Dog Park, where she has begun to run and she is beginning to learn to play fetch! Victory loves meeting new doggie friends at the park! She is really blossoming and coming into her own! We are really proud of the progress Victory continues to make and she continues to do well in her training class, with a few more weeks to go!
Why Make Art?
because you feel the need and calling to create
your passion is at the root of creating art
your passion overcomes your fear of uncertainty
you cannot imagine a life not making your art
you feel more alive and fulfilled when you are creating
because, most of all, your art fuels your soul
this is why it is important to follow your passion and share your art with the world
“Don’t cheat the world of your contribution. Give it what you’ve got.” ~Steven Pressfield
