Weekly Photo Challenge: Opposites – Part 1

The weekly photo challenge is ‘Opposites’ and even though all our rescue dogs are united as a pack, they are different in appearance and personality.

Below are a few photographs for this challenge, starting with the present and traveling back through time.

Stop Yulin

Our dog loving friends in China and in the US have asked us to spread the word. There are several online petitions and this is only one of them.


Please feel free to support this peaceful move to help save and protect dogs in China. You can sign the petition here:

End the Yulin Dog Meat Festival

Our own message on the petition reads like this:

Dogs are about love and peace. They were created by God to spread love and peace. We owe it to them to love them and allow them to live in peace.

With love from Xenia xxx
