Lookie what I got!

I attended The Art League's annual Patron's Show held at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town, where each attendee gets to pick a piece of art work via a lottery system.  I was able to snag this wonderful piece of bottle cap art called "Thirsty Dogs" by the artist Lisa Shumaier ( who is an artist in residence at the Torpedo Factory. She also does sculptures like these cool ones here, "cat in pajamas" and "rabbit with a monster doll" check her out!

This is an oldie but I thought it worked for this week's word. This is our rescued lab Kato after his "de-propagation-operation."

In every community, in every state, there are homeless animals. In the U.S. as a whole, there are an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year. The number of homeless animals varies by state—in some states there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shelters every year. Save a life, please spay and neuter your pets.
