Artist's Description

Turei my favorite model! I took a series of three photos nd i guess he heard the shutter, as soon as i put the camera down he jumped on me and semi blackened my eye. Ohhh i LOVE this dog to bits! Hes my best friend! [Of the animal kingdom!]

My cousins partner found him in the bush when he was hunting one day, hed gotten separated from whoever his then owner was, because of where we live it would have been impossible to track down his owner, there arent many people along the coast, the villages are spread out and it would be impossible to find them! If where my uncle found him, his owners could have been from a place 6 hours away! Crazy huh!

And im lucky that he was given a chance! Alot of dogs dont find their way home, are shot by accident thinking that they are a boar or are simply shot so they dont follow you home, or if they are aggressive they are tied to a tree and shot. I hate it, it has happened to so many of my dogs while growing up and although i can hate my father for it as much as i like it doesnt change the way the world works, things happen and unfortunately as much as i dont want it to be true, dogs are an expendable thing to humans. As soon as one is gone it is not long after replaced. It sucks! I really dont like it, i dont approve it, but i have to stop dreaming some time right?

I miss my favorite model! :( I know he will be gone soon and it makes me so sad!
