Out of office. It’s been nice taking a break from life, New York, and all the existential angst I put myself through all the time 😅 I am starting to feel the excitement of coming back home with a renewed energy and appetite. If you are vacationing with family, remember to take breaks from everyone and allow yourself to be alone with your own thoughts for a while. It’s not always easy to hang out with family and all the baggage that comes with. And keeping one’s sense of agency is paramount for a relaxing and fulfilling experience. We all need breaks from the world. 💚💙💚💙 (for those of you who haven’t followed my recent stories, I’m in Sweden 🇸🇪, my hubby’s childhood place).

ADOPTION PUPDATE: Zoey was rescued with her mom and siblings in Albama, and traveled to New York at @AnimalHaven as a puppy. She was swiftly adopted by a family, where she became the best friend, and biggest responsablity, of the 12-year-old daughter, Natalia. Natalia herself wrote this beautiful testimonial: “This is Willow and she is my incredibly beautiful little puppy. She is now 3 months old and she is massive. She basically has the same size paws as other full-grown dogs. It was definitely a hard/easy process adopting her. We had a lot of help from amazing people. The day we brought her home was spectacular. However, I don’t think she thought that it was spectacular. She was so nervous, but the next day she got the hang of things. The first thing we did when she came in the house was give her a bath. She was so funny and did not love the water. We thought we were the first people to give her a bath. We later learned it was Kevin Heart not us. My dog is so much more famous then I am. I love to share this story. One of my many jobs as an owner of a dog is to walk her. I always get so many nice compliments about her unique spots. My dad told me to tell people ”she is half Pit Bull and half Leopard.” Even though she has some Pit in her, she is so sweet and friendly. People should not be scared of her because she has a breed that is tougher then other breeds. Willow is the best thing that ever happened to my family. She has thought us how to be responsible pet owners. My family likes to spoil and cuddle with her. She loves to roll over and give us her belly to rub. She sleeps a ton on her back and snores super loud. She is just adorable and perfect for our family. Thank you Willow for being the best puppy ever!” . . #PitBullFlowerPower #PitBullFlowerPowerADOPTED #adoptdontshop #pitbulladvocate #photographysaveslives #sophiegamand #shelterdog #puppy #cutepuppy #merle

NEW YORK: look who is still waiting for a home?! 😱🥰 Valentina was rescued in Mexico on Valentine’s Day. She was hiding under a car, very shy, but as soon as rescuers offered her some food, she came out and they realized she couldn’t use her back legs very well. She struggles to stand up and walk. X-rays showed that Valentina had a broken hip that had healed improperly. Because she never received the medical help she needed, her back legs are stiff and she is semi-paralyzed - swipe for a video. She traveled to New York and is now in the care of @AnimalHaven where she is waiting for a set of wheels! Valentina shares her room with another dog. She is a bit shy at first, but good with other dogs and very mild-mannered. She is a sweetheart! She loves her blanket. If you bring her one, she will grab it gently and make herself comfortable with it. I guess she’s learned some tricks while surviving on the streets! 💪 Valentine is about 3 years old and medium sized. For more info, visit: www.animalhavenshelter.org, email dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org or call 212-274-8511. Animal Haven is located at 200 Centre Street in Manhattan. . . . #adoptdontshop #photographysaveslives #paralyzeddog #specialneedsdogs #rescuedog #shelterdog #mexicanrescue #cutiepie #dogsmile #tongueout

ADOPTION PUPDATE! I photographed Honey in LA a few weeks back at the @annenbergpetspace. She was recovering from surgery on both knees. My post caught the eyes of Megan and Jay (@megerig and @jaygerig), and they headed to the PetSpace to meet Honey immediately. ..“I cannot thank you enough for your work; it helped us bring Honey home.A dog-shaped hole started opening in our life, but we tried to hem in that desire with all of the things that needed to happen first in order for it to be “right”. It turns out all we truly needed was the right dog.As always, your photograph caught my eye. This time, however, it was closely followed by “LOS ANGELES” at the start of the post. So many of the sweet, adoptable faces I see are across the country—this one was here. I read about her two knee surgeries and watched the videos about her recovery process. I have had surgery on both of my knees, and I felt an immediate kinship. I knew this was our dog.When we went to meet her, she was at the counter on greeting duty. The person asked what brought us there; we pointed to Honey. We spent the afternoon with her, and she came home with us.She has been with us just over two weeks. She captures human hearts wherever she goes, and she has started making peace with our cats and friends with the dog next door. Honey loves the sunshine and moving her bed around the house to where she wants it. Actually, it’s the cats’ bed, who do not care about it. Honey claimed it for herself within minutes of being in our place. We’re going to get her a bigger one at some point, but for now it’s all hers and she loves it.She had her post-op today. The surgeon enthusiastically expressed that Honey is well on her way to a full recovery.We are grateful for the lessons she teaches us daily about getting outside and enjoying life. Megan and Jay” . ..#PitBullFlowerPowerADOPTED #PitBullFlowerPower #adoptdontshop

NEW YORK: Ben from @animalhaven makes everyone swoon! This 2-year-old heartthrob is super playful, with a happy-go-lucky personality. Ben loves nothing more than bouncing around a room, throwing his toys in the air and reminding us that joy is contagious. Ben is a pocket pit, meaning he is medium sized and perfect for the NYC life! He does love to get active and explore around the city. That said, he'll also be content with a house in the 'burbs or some digs near a hiking trail. Ben is recommended for an adult-only household, and no cats. He can be selective with dogs, but that’s always a tough thing to evaluate properly at the shelter. If you would like a playmate, an active companion who’d be the perfect wingman to get all the ladies, or boys, or nonbinary gender!! 🌈, please consider meeting Ben at @Animalhaven (200 Centre Street, NYC). For more info, visit: www.animalhavenshelter.org, email dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org or call 212-274-8511. . . #adoptdontshop #photographysaveslives #dogsmile #tongueouttuesday
