Victory: Photography Project — 77

Beginning in January 2014, I started a weekly photography project with my muse, Victory!  I will continue to share this project on the blog this year!  My goal is to document all of Victory’s changes, while preserving fleeting moments and memories, while capturing moments of our everyday.

While we were in Michigan over Thanksgiving, we met Chrissy, a relative of Victory who is also a survivor of the horrible hoarding situation that Victory also survived.  (Here is what Chrissy looked like prior to adoption).  Not only are Chrissy and Victory physically similar, their personalities and mannerisms are also similar!  Unlike Victory, Chrissy had a litter of puppies shortly after being rescued, and then Chrissy went to a special foster home for socialization.  Similar to Victory, upon being rescued, Chrissy was extremely timid, shy, malnourished, and fearful.  However, with time, love, and patience, Chrissy has blossomed, both physically and emotionally, and she now has a wonderful furever home, including an older sheltie sister!

It was neat to meet another pup who was also rescued from the same hoarding situation.  Wouldn’t it be neat to have a sheltie reunion with all of the sheltie survivors and their pups who were adopted?!  If I lived closer to the tri-state area, it would be much easier to coordinate!

It is my hope that Biscuit, Victory, and Chrissy encourage others to consider dog rescue.  There are so many wonderful animals who are in need of furever homes.

Happy Friday!  We hope that you have a great weekend!  This weekend I hope to make more progress on my photography project; we hope to get caught up at home from being away; and possibly take Victory to see Santa, a new annual tradition!

    Cool pictures! Thought you might like to know that the two, double merle, deaf and visually impaired puppies from Chrissy’s rescue litter are now certified therapy dogs. They are both spreading joy and comfort to many people besides their owners, of course. CarolMichigan Sheltie Rescue
