All Who Wander Are Not Lost

All Who Wander Are Not Lost
by Nancy Medina


All Who Wander Are Not Lost is my contribution this week to the Daily Paintworks Challenge and will be sold to raise funds for Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue. I love the phrase, All Who Wander Are Not Lost, because it reminds me of the tireless work my friends in pug rescue do every single day. I am not talking about myself. I am talking about the ladies who go to the puppy mills and carry pugs out of terrible conditions. Pugs who have never known a kind touch, or a bath, or a gentle word, until these women touch them for the first time. One leader who drove over 10,000 miles last year to shelters, mills, pounds, and other states to pick up pugs, some of whom were hours away from the end. These are the soldiers on the front lines of rescue, and they have my unconditional admiration.

My painting today will be donated to Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue, and all proceeds from its sale will go toward the pugs that this charity organization saves. Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue is now the largest pug rescue in the nation, and has saved over 5000 pugs since its formation 14 years ago. We take in all pugs, regardless of age or medical condition, and provide all medical treatment prior to adoption, including neutering. What an honor it has been to work with such a dedicated group.
