To introduce the latest project from BitsyCreations, please welcome a guest post from a sweet friend of ours named Olivia! We have had so many people see our Kidlet products and ask if they could get these cute products for their PETS! What a wonderful idea! Right now, we are offering ceramic pet dishes in two sizes. Just e-mail a photo of your furry friend when you purchase and a proof will be sent to you. In the future, once we've built up a nice portfolio of animal illustrations, we'll have choices you can make just like the Kidlet products.
Hi, my name is Olivia and I just got a new bowl from BitsyCreations! It has my name and a picture of me on it! I love it!
I don’t know if you noticed something funny about my picture but I’m missing a leg. That’s right, I only have three legs. When I was just four months old, the people who used to own me brought me to the vet. They said I injured my leg somehow but when my doctors tried to fix it, they couldn’t. My leg was broken and it had been broken for a long time. So instead of repairing the break, my doctors had to amputate my leg. A little while after that, the most wonderful thing happened – I met my new Mom and Dad!
I really don’t mind having three legs. I can still do all the things I would have done with four legs – I can run, jump, swim, play ball, play Frisbee, and play with other dogs – but I get WAY more attention with just three legs. I LOVE people and I LOVE getting pets. My favorite thing in the whole world is to go swimming at my Dad’s work (he manages a marina and I get to go to work with him every day). I will fetch my toys in the water for anyone willing to throw them for me! I’ve made so many friends that way!
I know a lot of people are afraid of dogs that look like me but I don’t know why. I really love people, especially people who will throw my ball for me!
My mom helps rescue dogs like me by fostering with a rescue called Mid-Atlantic Bully Buddies. These dogs stay with us for awhile until they find their forever homes. It is a great rescue and they are always looking for more foster parents or donations. If you want to help (or would like to adopt one of their great dogs), you can visit their website: www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org.
My mom also volunteers at an animal shelter in Baltimore, Maryland. It’s called Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) and they always need more volunteers and donations (and adopters)! If you can help, visit their website: www.baltimoreanimalshelter.org.
And anytime you want to throw a ball for me, I’m available!
