Sunlight Sunflowers is a new small work drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio today. Most of you know by now that when I am not painting, one of the things I like to do is volunteer for Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue. It was a good week for adoptions for our rescue pugs, especially since Lindy found her forever home.

She may not win any beauty pageants, but one-eyed, one-eared Lindy has won the hearts of her new family who adopted her this weekend. This little girl was found abandoned by the side of a road in Waco. Her past is a mystery, but her future is going to be filled with unconditional love. Lindy's adopted mom called today to let us know that Lindy is adjusting very well to her new home. She goes everywhere with her adopted mom. Her new mom is a special education teacher and she is going to take Lindy to her class and the children are going to have a contest to give her a forever name.

I love happy endings, especially for the innocent little animals who depend on us entirely for love and care. Thank goodness for that one good soul who saw this tiny little dog wandering down a highway, and stopped to help her.

Lindy, Rescue Pug

Gosh, Nancy. Lindy looks so very sweet. I don't know what is wrong with the people of this world who would neglect or abuse any animal, or any child, or any body of any kind. It is so heartbreaking and gut wrenching. I am so glad Lindy is being loved, at last.

The sunflowers are such a delight.

Yea! So glad this sweet girl found a loving home. Her new Mom sounds like a great lady.
Sunflowers and story brightened my day. :-)

Sherry, I agree. I am glad there are many good-hearted people and rescuers out there, it gives me hope. Howie sends morning hugs to you!

Thanks Liz! It is one of the best stories I've heard from our rescue in a long time, I'm going to feature it in our rescue newsletter, too. Give your mom a hug for me.

As a former vet clinic employee, I applaud all of you who help the unfortunate little ones. Please spay and neuter your pets and remember they are a lifetime commitment.

My eyes cried when I read the story. But I should not be crying,, because it ended happy,,, but my heart is torn when I think of the past,,,
i should remember not to look back.

But when I look at your painting,, I feel love and hope,, and hugs from you. Because there is hope - after all
