Endurance creates happy endings

Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one endures that the final victory comes. ~ Buddha”

Dogs go through endurance test so that owners can have fun with them; dog obedience is one of the training they endure.  You say to the dog sit, the dog sits; bark, the dog barks; roll-over, the dog rolls-over.  This is a fun and simple way to train a dog and maybe, just maybe they become super dogs.

In my walks, I’ve met so many dogs that did not have this luxury.Dog wpc mexico

This was a street dog in Mexico. I wonder what kind of life he led prior to him being found by a good man, brought him to Canada and is now living a good life.

A dog rescued being trained to be a dog fighter is now a beautiful playful dog that loves playing with stones in the pond.  A stone and a pond is all what he loves to do now, no fighting.

For this dog, he endures the heat while his master tends to the garden.

Ani is our therapy dog during the long period of teachers strike days. She was there and endured all that touch, hugs, rubs, food, walks and plenty of love from all of us.

Without Ani during the strike, hours would have drag on and boring.  Thank you, Ani, for enduring the humans for we are a whole bunch of whiners.

Sisters in Arms - The Animals we Love

Sisters in Arms – The Animals We Love photographed by Maria Vanesa Acuto

Photographer’s Note:
‘Cayenne’ in the back, six months old :) one of the twelve puppies we fostered for the BCSPCA animal shelter in Squamish, British Columbia Canada…’Raine’ in the front, also a rescued dog….almost two years old…we love them both! Cayenne is very easy-going, calm and very grounded…on the other hand, Raine is quite active, full of energy and a bit of a handful. After playing with the ball…a step sister embrace ~ Maria Vanesa Acuto

Photographing pets give me an immense soul joy!, discovering their personalities and capturing with an image their world, little expressions and movements…

Editor’s Note:
This union, their love of each other is evident in your photo. It is lovely. I had two whippet that were devoted to each other, one older by 6 years. It was a painful separation when my older whippet passed away. Your photo reminds me of their interdependence. Mine too were quite different. The stoic older dog took a lot of heat and got attacked defending my sometimes rude younger girl whippet but they supported one another. Sorry, for my going down memory lane. ~ Robin Schwartz

My Note:
Another winner of National Geographic: Your Shot Assignment “The Animals We Love.” I receive so much joy in sharing people’s talents and passion in helping animals.
