This is an odd summer. Nothing really goes like I wanted it. The weather is giving me many problems (well, I suppose not only me). Since I have to take these cancer meds, the hot and humid summer is sort of paralyzing me. It sucks all the strength and energy out of me, that I need to create. My desk really, really is a complete mess. Here is the proof:
I started journaling again, but something else is drawing my attention. Her name is Diva. Incidentally I happened to come across a site of an organisation, that takes care of these poor doggies that are abused in breeding factories. You might have heard of it. They keep dogs in small cages, sometimes in complete darkness. They get hormon treatments, so they get babies 3 times a year, instead of two. Very often, they don´t get enough to eat, they get no medical treatment, they are just kept to produce babies.
It breaks my heart, when I think, what so called humans do to them, just for profit. This only works, because people buy puppies any places, but not from a responsible breeder or go to a shelter and adopt a puppy from there. What really impressed me is the work of the organisation „Liberty for Dogs“ or Retriever in Not. To get an impression of the things I am talking about you should have a look at their website.
Anyway I did and found Diva.
She is a 7 year old Cavalier King Charles and was all her life living in a cage and producing babies. It was love on first sight and very soon we could welcome her in our home. I am not telling any more, just have a look at the slide show and I am sure you will understand me. These are photos made in the shelter where she was in loving care. It is more a family situation than a shelter, where the puppies are been taking care of to relax and get stronger. Because living in a small cage makes them weak and many of them are in bad shape.
Now she lives at our place and is good friends with our Luna already:
That is it for now, have some fun visiting some desks and have a wonderful creative time.
