Sirius of the Week

Sasha Canela is our star this week...

"I am a Shitzu. When I was a little puppy I used to have very brown hair, but when I turned 1 my hair turned beige. Every morning day I go to walk with my Mommy through the neighborhood, then my mommy prepares for me a delicious plate of dry food combined with wet food. My daddy says bye because he has to go to work, then my mommy says bye because she has to work too. In the afternoon when they come back home, they play a lot with me: we go the yard to play with bubbles and catch some butterflies. At night my mommy gives me a big hug because it's now time to sleep. She leaves a big space on her bed side so I can sleep very well and comfortably. I sleep like a baby and I do not disturb them as much as a human baby during the night. I am a quite good dog!!!!"

Here are a couple of photos from Katrin Bellyeu (

Elizabeth Ellis is a painter who is painting an 8x10 inch watercolor of an adoptable animal in a shelter each week in 2015. At the beginning of 2016, she will have an exhibition of the 52 paintings at the Dreaming Tree Gallery in Grove City, Ohio. After the exhibition, she will mail the original paintings to the shelter where the animal is still living, or hopefully, to the family that has adopted the animal.

She is calling it the "Year of 52 Rescues" and will be blogging and tweeting the whole process. She started near where she lives, in Ohio, but will include shelters from other parts of the United States. You can see her work at Elizabeth Ellis Art and Elizabeth Paints on Facebook.

Beware of Internet Puppy Scams: Unfortunately, unscrupulous people have been sending emails offering to sell pedigree puppies (bulldogs, pugs, and others). Similar phony websites are also on the web. These emails and websites are fake. They are designed to cheat you out of your money either by never sending you the puppy or by sending you a different dog from what you paid for. Your best bet: If you want a purebred, contact a local breed-specific rescue group. Or if you just want a new best friend, save a life from your local animal pound.

Some Dog Facts

  • A timid dog can become dangerous. Such dogs should always be trained gently with a lot of patience and encouragement.
  • A dog that is growling or snarling (or possibly silent), is standing rigidly, and is giving you a fixed stare, is a dog that you should NOT touch.
  • The ancestors of the Japanese Chin are believed to have been introduced into Japan in the 8th century B.C.
  • "Blue Merle" = A type of hair coloring that consists of a blending of blue, grey, and black hairs.
  • Dogs need about half the protein that cats do, so do not feed cat food to a dog.
  • Puppies grow while they sleep.
  • Hounds are hunting dogs. Some hounds hunt by sight (sighthounds like Greyhounds); others use their noses on the ground to follow their target (Beagles and Bloodhounds, for example).
  • The coat of the Weimaraner is almost always short and dense. It can be roebuck, silvery grey, mousy-grey, and all intervening shades of grey. Occasionally there will be white patches on the chest and/or paws.
