just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.
TRIGGER WARNINGS: animal abuse, neglect
Canis did not have a good start to life. He was ‘rescued’ from a neglectful home by someone who had no idea what they were doing. During his time under her care, he would often be locked in the back of a truck or in a crate for 12+ hours a day while she worked, as he was destructive at home (small apartment) and had no enclosure where he could roam or relax without constant supervision. He developed a nasty ear infection, and she ignored medical advice and failed to get it treated for a long time. One time when she lost control of him, she bribed him with a pet rabbit, which he then killed. She was bitten several times by him, as she did not know how to appropriately handle wolfdog behaviour, let alone one she acquired as an adult from a spotty past. She was convinced the way to cure his misbehaviours was to ‘dominate’ this insecure animal in aggressive ways.
Canis was a LOW content wolfdog. His situation escalated because she was not prepared, having owned a dog misrepresented as a wolfdog in the past, and she was uneducated. He was eventually rescued by a couple with a lot more experience, and renamed Thor. She did not want to give him up and kept him in this stressful situation for nearly a year.
This is an absolutely horrific example of irresponsible pet ownership. This is exactly why inexperienced people should not own wolfdogs, because they are NOT regular dogs. This is what misrepresentation contributes to. It is NOT a joke.
A great comparison picture! The top is a high content wolfdog and the bottom is a low content wolfdog.

He caught me watching him roll around in the dirt. So he slowly came to a stop. You can see in the very last photo he still is looking at me, you can see a tiny eyeslit lol.
I rescued this gorgeous pup from the animal shelter on the 20th. Her name is Luna and she is a 4 year old white siberian husky (but we think she might be younger). According to the shelter her family left her because they were not giving her enough attention and was mostly an outdoor, not housebroken, very energetic dog. I think they might have been her second owners because so far she certainly seems to be house trained, you just have to pay attention to when she wants to go out. She is getting lots of love and attention and has been such a good girl. Small issue with chasing the cats but no real signs of aggression and we are working on training her. She also got some nice pink socks the other day because the cement can get pretty hot here during the summer and I didn’t want her to burn her sweet lil’ paws. She is such a darling, walks wonderful on a leash, snuggles on your bed with you, and has done a good job of not jumping the fence out of the room we want her to be in at the time. Couldn’t be happier.
Silas was v happy to pick the movie today
went to visit friends/cousins, found out they had a wolf dog
I work with the humane society in my town, one thing I will never get use to is seeing a dead dog. This beautiful soul was found on the side of the road, she had a massive gash on her shoulder and serious head trama. Someone hit her with their vehicle and left her to die, later someone else moved her body. My 3 friends and I whent to where someone reported the body and we dug her a grave. Rest In Peace you blue eyed white husky. You didn’t deserve this.
I just love these goons.
Thought I’d share since my dog looks exactly like one of yours! He gets lots of attention when I take him out in public.. probably just like your pup does :)
Oh my gosh he’s perfect!! What is his name? He’s adorable! Thank you for sharing him with us! I now need to know your address so I can come steal him kthx.
ETA: It looks like this was submitted using an email so not sure how to link to you to give you proper credit! But thank you for sharing, Will!
