I woke up yesterday and saw an email from a woman in North Carolina named Diana. My first reaction was it was one of those emails requesting money or one that told me I was entitled to a large sum, like $1,000,000.US dollars. You all know what I’m talking about. :-) However, I kept reading and found out it was in fact about a woman who happens to love dogs and was seeking help. Diana was tagged in a photo on facebook of a 10 year old chow mix dog that was just dropped off and at the Downey Shelter in Los Angeles. The photo was of Blackie on the concrete looking out for his owners, which made her think of her own dog Rocky. She then arranged to have a rescue center pull him out of the shelter and take him to a rescue boarder called Top Dog Resort. Blackie was neglected and his coat fully matted. She paid to have him groomed, which meant a full shave down and he has been at Top Dog Resort since January 12, 2011.
Diana is currently unemployed and has shelled out close to $1,000 trying to save this adorable dog. Here is a woman who lives in North Carolina and is saving a dog she has never met. Amazing. She found my blog post I did about a dog found, by the name of Popcorn. You can see that post by clicking here. She reached out to me to see if I would be interested in taking 4-5 photos of Blackie, so they can place him in a good and loving home. Being the dog lover I am, I could NOT refuse. It just so happened this weekend was my catch up weekend with no shoots or meetings, so I happily agreed. I took a spin out there, met Blackie and grabbed a few pics of him. He was a little camera shy, although he loves to have someone pet him. Adorable dog. If anyone can assist in finding him a home, please let me know. Diana, thank you for giving Blackie hope and thank you for contacting me. I hope Blackie will be in a safe and loving home soon.
Happy Sunday all…:-)
