Dog Days Signature Artwork

“The Expedition” by Christine Warjone

“The Expedition” is a one of a kind piece created by local artist & fellow animal lover/adopter, Christine Warjone. Christine’s adopted shelter pup, Rocky, wrote us a little note to go along with the painting:

“Hello Animal Shelter Friends,

I am Rockefeller Warjone…aka Rocky.

First, I want to thank you all for the support, love, nourishment and care you gave me until I found my “forever” home. Thank you for being the facilitator for all things safe and secure in my life.

My parents Jim and Christine love me beyond measure. They tell me that I am smart and respectful. I wasn’t always that way but here I am today a well behaved boy. My friends and neighbors believe I am a miracle genius child because I was such a fast learner. I went from wild child to the model citizen of my Warm Springs neighborhood. My parents claim that I am the light and energy of our household. My mom is my best friend. I go everywhere with her. She and I have a tremendous mutual admiration and love for each other.

Thank you Animal Shelter Family….You were my lifesaver. You gave me the chance at a life I could never imagine when I was found wandering the road looking for safety. I have an immediate and extended family that loves me so deeply that sometimes it’s a bit embarrassing.

Love,
Rocky Warjone
