Meeting people who love animals is always an adventure. They each have wonderful stories to tell about dogs, cats, or wildlife they have met along the way. In a few, short months in the whirl of social media I have met lots of wonderful people, all advocates of animal welfare. Each person is helping in their own sweet way to make the world a better place for one precious pet to helping thousands of animals after a disaster. One thing I learned very quickly while researching the internet is there are many sad, horrific stories about animals. I found myself feeling constantly broken-hearted and overwhelmed. Since I specialize in painting images to make you smile,this was definitely not a good thing. So I made it a mission to seek out positive stories that I will post here for all of us. Sometimes we just need a little reminder that there is great good in the world and we can rest our weary minds by dwelling on that good, if only for a little while. Then we can go forward, refueled, to right wrongs and to make the world a better place.
