I donated a Monoprint of Mowgli, my rescue pup, to the Art Unleashed Auction and it SOLD! That money was donated to the Chicago Canine Rescue!
Mowgli is very close to my heart. Below is the print of him and his story!
We adopted Mowgli in March 2014. He was one of two in his litter with the blue merle coloring and a tail. All the rest were black and white border collie looking pups with bobbed tails like the Australian Shepherd they were mixed with. I wanted to get Anna, a fuzzy black sister to Mowgli, but she didn’t have a full tail, so I wasn’t sure. I have always loved to see a happy tail wagging. My husband was sure that Adam(Mowgli) was the right one for us. The minute they put him in my arms at 10 weeks old, I fell in love with him. We adopted him right away from the Midwest Animal Rescue.
One week later he caught parvo, a virus that can sometimes kill young pups, and we were faced with a tough decision, but we loved him so much, and it was just the start of his life, we had to try to save him. We caught it early. Thousands of dollars and weeks later Mowgli was declared healthy and able to come home to his family. I did this monoprint of him off of one of the few pictures I had of him before he went into the hospital. I missed him so much while he was sick. I worried about him and even went to visit him in seclusion, just to see him through the glass. He was and is the light of our lives!
Now we go everywhere with him. We teach him new tricks all the time! He learns so fast. Only yesterday he learned to bring us the newspaper from outside. He also helps out in the kitchen by closing cabinet doors and drawers. We are teaching him to dance and he can even count to 4!
