Artist's Description

My pal, Stevey, is now 11 years old. He’s been featured on Redbubble since 2008. Just as I’ve grown old on Redbubble, he has too! We’ve had 10 beautiful years together, ever since I adopted him from an animal rescue. You’d never know how old he is, especially when he rip races around when I come home and say, “Let me see you run!”

I will never have another dog that isn’t a rescue. Stevey, to this day is super sensitive. When he was young he would incessantly bark and growl at men wearing dark clothes. I knew then that most likely a man in dark clothing abused him when he was a young pup.

He still barks at men in dark clothing, even on TV. It’s proof to me that even though he’s extremely happy and much loved now, that he will always carry the fear of being abused for the rest of his life. It’s one of the reasons that I bonded with him so quickly when I first brought him home. I held him tight, desperately wanting to take his pain away.

That very first day, as he was cuddled in my arms, I made up a song for him on the way home. While rubbing his belly, I sang, “Stevey, Stevey, I’m in love with Stevey. Do do do do do da do do do. Do do do do do da do do do.” Next, I joyfully say, “Stevey yayyy, Stevey yayyy, Stevey yayyy yayyy yayyy!!! I’ve done in it every night at bedtime ever since!! He deserves all the love in the world that I can possibly give him. And guess what? I get his love back tenfold!!

If you are thinking about getting a dog or cat, please consider looking both online and in local shelters. They need love, just as we all do.

This photograph was shot with a Canon 40D, eqipped with an 18-200mm lens in West Chester, PA USA.
