I’ve been MIA for the last few weeks. My mum had to be rushed to hospital and after a stay of a week and a half and a pretty major operation she is home. Much relief all round and I no longer have to spend each day at the hospital. Just a visit every day or so to keep her in groceries and sanity I think!
One good thing that has happened though is that my Pug drawing is up for auction. Saffron on the Hill in Victoria, Australia, is a pug and animal rescue/refuge. A friend of mine loves pugs and introduced me to SOTH earlier this year after a visit she made to them and she filled me in on the wonderful work they do to rescue badly treated dogs.
I drew the Pug especially for them to auction to raise money. To quote their FB page “Saffron on the Hill Dog Rescue Inc is a Not-for-profit organisation that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes dogs. We fund our work through the sales of our dog accessories, auctions, fundraiser events and through voluntary donations.” Please check out their website, blog or Facebook page.
I believe it is only open to Australian Residents and will be open until the 25th August. The auction is happening via the SOTH Facebook Page. Here is a link to the auction if you’d like to take part. It is for a really great cause.
UPDATE: 26 August… The painting went for $700 so I’m really happy. They’ll be able to buy a lot of doggie biscuits with that!
