Poppies in Red Oil Painting and a Foster Pug Homecoming

Poppies in Red is an old painting with fresh new flowers today, celebrating the homecoming of my foster pug, Hannah, from DFW Pug Rescue. Hannah had surgery to help her breathe better a few days ago, and was able to come home with strict orders for 24 hour supervision. No barking, no playing, no running, and no outdoors activities for any extended length of time. She is happy to be home, while I'm a bit of a basket case trying to ensure all the doctor's orders are fulfilled!

Hannah is a little 5 year old girl from Germany whose family gave her to rescue almost 6 months ago. She was adopted by another family, who gave her up several weeks later. She's been with us for almost 3 weeks, and has her confidence and happiness back. She has fit in just fine with my own spoiled pugs, and participates in all important activities including pug pile, snoring contests, and refrigerator sentry duty.

Hannah on her way in to surgery. This is her
"are you sure I can't have brekkies?" face.

Beautiful poppies in one of my favorite vases! So glad to hear that Hannah came through her surgery well! I've been worried about her, truly. Methinks she should just stay with you, Nancy. She couldn't find a better forever home and since the other Puglets have accepted her...hint hint wink wink

Nancy, you've outdone yourself with this painting. Your poppies are wonderful!

I'm glad Hannah is back home after surgery and you really must keep her now that she is so happy and is so helpful to the other pugs with their snoring contests, etc.
