Much love from me MacLovin! I am having fun with my daddy's family and trying to be a good boy too! I only peed on the rug like, twice! I am wearing auntie BoomBoom's favorite Christmas outfit. She passed away before the summer and was the inspiration behind @thesatoproject. Her mommy and my mommy went to Puerto Rico to the shelter where BoomBoom came from, to honor her memory, and they found me! So I know Boomie is looking over me, she is like my fairy godmother. I want to make her super proud. Anyway, I hope you are having a lovely time with those you love ❤️. #MerryChristmas #MacLovin #dogrescue #adoptdontshop

Time to party! This week went 💨!! Is it me or is February 😵🥊 .
Thank fricking god it's Friday again!! #PawfessorMacLovin

An oldie from when we fostered Buddy Love for @mrbonesandco (#adoptbuddylovembc). It's a little because of him that we took MacLovin out of the shelter! The resemblance was striking! Except that Buddy grew to be a 40-something lbs pittie boy and #PawfessorMacLovin is about 10lbs... 😂😅

#SquadGoals Fletcher (R) from @mrbonesandco is coming back! We are pupsitting him for a couple of days while he waits for his forever home! #pawfessormaclovin (L) can't wait to catch up with his brother from another mother 😅🙌

Today is #pawfessorMacLovin’s rescue anniversary! Time to celebrate and remember. Warning: some of the images might be hard to look at. 1st pic is Mac's shelter portrait I took that day.
.

PART 1/2: A year ago, I visited the Arecibo shelter (Albergue Capitan Correa) with @thesatoproject. My plan was to bring awareness to their needs, and the TSP was going to rescue lucky dogs. (I received news that the shelter suffered very little damage from the hurricane, thankfully!) Puerto Rican shelters deal with horrors. Every day, dogs are pouring in. Owner surrenders, truckloads of strays of all ages, from newborns to seniors. That shelter’s euthanasia rate is around 90%, and many more dogs die while in their custody (distemper and parvo being the biggest enemies). After a long conversation with the owner of the shelter, I was able to convince him to let me photograph their intake floor. These photos are from there (by opposition, their adoption floor was actually quite nice, and they are really working hard at making a difference in their community). I wasn’t sure how to photograph, how to convey the feeling of walking around the overwhelming facility. But my goal was to bring awareness and help the shelter make much-needed improvements. Things I could never convey in photos: the smells, the cries, the barking, the panting, the relentless mosquitoes, the excruciating humidity, the slippery floor as you walk through, your heart pounding, a mix of fear, anxiety and utter sadness rushing through your entire being. But what my photos could capture, were the broken dogs. And for every dog we were able to pull, so many more would be awaiting their fate. I can’t explain to you what it does to your soul, when the shelter staff asks you “are you done photographing these puppies? Because we must euthanize them now. They have been crying for food for 2 days and unfortunately no lactating mom came in, we must put an end to their suffering”. So we raised awareness, and money. Some of it was used to vet the dogs The Sato Project had pulled and the rest was used to upgrade the facility (tiled floors, puppy quarantine area, safer cages, new washer/drier, new vetting equipment).

Mesmerizing. 🐰 #PawfessorMacLovin enjoying some snow and off-leash time 🙊😍

Gentlemen farmers. #PawfessorMacLovin spent the weekend with #adopttatertotmbc at the Puppy Farm with @mrbonesandco 💚💚💚

The peanut butter gang #pawfessorMacLovin and #adoptgusmbc wanted to share another face with @guggenheim! Guys, you have been amazing in sharing #tortureisnotart and the petition (link is in my bio). We are now getting 3K new signatures every 30min and are up to 113K!!! I am in touch with Stephanie (@steph_in_nola) who launched it, and we are both ecstatic. Is Guggenheim listening yet? I hope so 🙏. Keep sharing and keep signing! The media is also putting the pressure. I was interviewed by @pix11news yesterday for their news segment (link is in my story) and @thedodo Impact published a great article as well (among many other media outlets picking the story up!!). The @aspca also released a statement 🙌🙌.
.
I cannot tell you how to protest, but I want to encourage you to keep it civilized, especially when it comes to the Guggenheim staff. I hear the curators had to disable their social media accounts, and that makes me uncomfortable. We need to be respectful in our anger. We need to be civilized and to the point for them to hear our side. Otherwise we will look like crazy people 😜😜 Please 🙏🙏 refrain from slandering Guggenheim and their staff, and from sharing racial slur against the Chinese. We know many amazing animal advocates from China. And once this is over and hopefully with a good outcome, I hope the Guggenheim will still have many opportunities to share art that will be influencing, powerful and meaningful. We all learn from our mistakes and I hope they learn from this one. Even if we don't sit in fancy offices deciding on which fancy art to spend millions, we know when something doesn't have its place in a prestigious, influential institution. And the torture of living creatures is a no-brainer.

NEW YORK: we started fostering Gus from @mrbonesandco! This adorable doggie came from North Carolina where he was rescued from a bad situation. He is a low-rider, velvet fur, salsa dancing, cartoonish boy who is about 2-3 years old. He slept in his crate with no issues, and has started an intense bromance with #pawfessorMacLovin. Well. Mac started the bromance and Gus decided it was better to give in. Gus is a bit smaller than Mac (which doesn't show in this pic 😬), at about 14-15lbs. So far, he's been really respectful of boundaries yet affectionate. I can see how he will bond with his people and be an adorable companion! He is great with dogs. Mac says "Adopt my buddy now. NOW". Sometimes I feel he is trying to hypnotize us.
Apply for Gus at www.mrbonesandco.org. .

NEW YORK! Fletcher @mrbonesandco this weekend is a real catch! #pawfessormaclovin approves 🙌
Fletcher is 4-5 months old, neutered, UTD on shots and just arrived from NC! An owner surrender, he is believed to be a Dachshund/Hound/Pit mix and weighs in at about 14 lbs. He's definitively got the beady eyes of a Dachshund and the deliciously kissable lips of a pittie 😍😗 - not to mention the ears. The ears!!! He will likely not exceed 20-25lbs. when he is full grown. He's great with kids, cats and dogs and can't wait to find his forever 🏡! Fletcher is affectionate and playful. He is learning to go potty outside and is doing great. He is smart and eager to learn. One "no" is enough for him to stop any mischievous behavior. He already got his "sit" down 🙌

Mini #pawfessormaclovin 💚

Ready for the fireworks! 💥
But seriously, make sure your pets wear their collars with tag / ID And keep them inside in the next couple of days at night, if they are sensitive. Fireworks are one of the main causes for pets to get loose and lost ☹️. So far MacLovin doesn't seem to be bothered (which is weird because he is such a scaredy cat!). .

For at last, stillness.

My inner torments seem to have taken a rest, for now! Parts of me don't want to let them go yet, because I am also painfully aware that inspiration, life, comes from that festering, rotting place. It's been good retreating a bit though. .
Saturday experiments. .
#PawfessorMacLovin

So much gratitude to @sophiegamand
for such raw and pure words that speak true to all of us whose purpose is to make a positive imprint on this world, especially when it comes to making the difference for those who don't have a voice of their own. Here's to compassion towards these beautiful creatures, one another, and ourselves.

I have been struggling quite a bit for the past few months. Can’t put my finger on it, just general sluggishness and absence of creative desire. I feel like I am battling something really deep, one of those old demons, as I call them. Not sure what this one has to say precisely, except it felt pretty rotten: you are a failure, a loser, lonely, depressed, fat, not talented. You will never do anything else than Flower Power, and people are already losing interest. Look, you don’t even have 1 million followers like those cute dogs and cats around Instagram. You probably don’t even get animals adopted anymore. You will never achieve anything more. This is it. I hope you enjoyed it while it lasted. You may as well just disappear in a tiny little hole, nobody will even notice. Yeah, I guess that particular demon had a lot to say after all. I treated this rough time like a true battle. I chose my weapons and I made conscious decisions: lots of cookies, lots of doggie snuggles, art classes, meditation, reading, watching, observing the beast while trying to be kind to myself. I mostly failed. Today I cried during an art class. That’s kind of my specialty, actually. I don’t think I can remember an art class when I didn’t cry at some point. I went home and I treated myself to a big fat slice of cake, took a nap, then I stood up and gathered everything that was left in me. It wasn’t much. I hugged MacLovin and I think he understood that he needed to be by my side for this particular battle. He sat and held his pose. Something was different today. He knew it. This isn’t much, but damn, it feels like a victory. Much love to all my creative friends out there. xxx

This weekend was a crazy one! I photographed a portrait, a birthday party, a 5K and an animal blessing at @dnkldharma (such a wonderful, peaceful and spiritual place... everyone was so friendly and welcoming). Not only was I excited because I love animals and have always been fascinated with Buddhism, but the guest speaker was a photographer who's work I love and have been following for awhile now. It's safe to say I was definitely a fan girl on Saturday. Check out @sophiegamand, you will not be disappointed! Her work is beyond beautiful and filled with so much purpose. This is her puppy MacLovin getting blessed and I can't get over his sweet expression. #daniellerobinsonphotography #dnkldharma #animalblessing #tibetanblessing #buddhism #sophiegamand #fangirl #pawfessormaclovin #puppy #blessed #blackandwhite #photojournalism #liveauthentic #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #sweet #weekend #redding #connecticut

@Regrann from @sophiegamand - MacLovin was blessed tibetan style yesterday, thanks to @dnkldharma! We had a wonderful, lovely, peaceful time in Connecticut. The buddhists believe all animals are sentient beings, and may have been human before, and might be human again some day. This is why it’s important to show them (and human fellows) all the compassion we can. And when they have issues, we need to remember that not everyone is born with the same abilities, and we shouldn’t judge or shun, but rather accompany the less fortunate, people/animals who are angry, sad, mean, the bullies and the hurtful too. They need support the most, so they can reach happier, healthier lives.
The buddhist animal blessing is a way to help animals reach the enlightenment they can reach during this lifetime. It’s also a time for healing. I love their perspective on the animal kingdom. When I met Mac, it definitively felt like I was meeting an old friend again. I am so lucky that my husband felt that same connection. And I believe MacLovin felt the same toward us too. Seeing him on this photo, being all brave and trusting, made my heart sing. He is definitively our soulmate and he knows we want the best for him. I love the idea that we are here for each other, to help each other reach a higher level of personal enlightenment, and that regardless of the hurdles, we will take care of each other, with love and compassion. I am forever thankful to Danielle of @daniellerobinsonphotography for capturing this moment, what a talented lady!! (you might want to consider her for your photo needs in CT, she worked miracles). I am thankful too for Gloria, for inviting me to be a guest speaker at this event, and share words of compassion for pit bulls with #pitbullflowerpower 💚💚💚

As I am preparing for my upcoming exhibit in Brooklyn (see my previous post and come on Saturday! 🙌💚), I am reflecting on all the poor doggies who are euthanized every day. It's a quiet pain I feel. I think about my little MacLovin, curled up on my lap as I type. I think about the shelter he comes from in Puerto Rico, how they euthanize 80% of their dogs. I think about how he was to be on that list, because he is brindle - not very desirable among their adopters. How they would have taken his little body, his soulful, loving, curious little self, and lifted him up to bring him to the euthanasia room. I am thinking about the people who have to make these impossible decisions to euthanize healthy dogs. We've come a long way, don't get me wrong, but there is still much to be done. A recent study states we "only" euthanize about 670,000 dogs per year, as opposed to 1.3 million just a few years ago. Whatever we are doing right now is working. Let's keep it up! .

Yesterday for the first time, I felt ready! When mommy and daddy put their shoes on and walked toward the door, I didn't rush after them and whined. I stayed in my bed and I looked at them and I said "It's ok. I am ready". And when they locked the door behind them, I didn't prance around, crying, or scratched the door like a lunatic. I stayed calm until they came home later. Yesterday I became a big boy! .
#PawfessorMacLovin turned a corner yesterday! We have been crating him when we leave, because otherwise he was always so distressed. The crate was part of the routine and made him feel safe.

Maman! When are you coming back?! .
Having a great time helping the doggies in Miami, but missing my own little booboo monkey boy #PawfessorMacLovin 🐵. I have always felt sad of course for homeless dogs. But having my own precious, delicate furry baby at home, makes everything hit very close to my heart. Every dog I see languishing in their kennel is MacLovin. Every dog I see being sad, stressed, confused, frustrated, is my baby boy. We need to become louder and louder! Adopt, foster, spay and neuter, stop breeding (especially pitties). It is truly heartbreaking to connect with all these dogs and see their souls suffer. .

Mesmerizing. 🐰 #PawfessorMacLovin enjoying some snow and off-leash time 🙊😍

TATER TOT is ten days post op from his third and final surgery. He's back at Charlotte's Run, our upstate NY 'puppy farm' for the weekend and is just starting to bounce back to his playful self! Tater's body is still learning how to work without most of his colon but his friends MacLovin and his mama @sophiegamand, who joined us for the weekend, are making things a little easier! 🐕🚜👬💩

Back in October. My little booboo #PawfessorMacLovin the day before @thesatoproject pulled him out of the shelter forever! We had a long talk, him and I, and when I left he whined, he was so scared and lonely 😥. I knew it was only a matter of hours before we would come back to pull him out. But to him, it must have felt like forever. He was covered in bugs and ticks were crawling all over him. He looked incredibly sad. Later I learned that he had 2 brothers who were fluffy and had been adopted. MacLovin was still in limbo, because of his short, brindle coat... people don't adopt brindle dogs in general, and not in PR anyway. His coat was a quasi certain death sentence. His coat!!! Knowing his true, gentle, deep nature (which was easy to see right away), I can't imagine how horrible his stay at the shelter must have been, and the fate that awaited this sweet little peanut. We need to keep spreading awareness for spay/neuter and adoption! A country like America shouldn't have that type of issues anymore. Or at least, not at that scale. We have the means, resources and access to information to fix this. Yet, over a million American dogs are euthanized every year! For nothing. Discarded like trash, swept under the rug. Every single one of us must do our part. 💚 #adoptdontshop

MacLovin is proud to participate in his first official awareness campaign! 🤓 Today he is joining #SaveThe21 to help save the lives of 21 dogs, who deserve the chance they’ve never had in life. You can join too! .
👉THE STORY

Over a year ago, a group of dogs were rescued from a dog fighting ring in Tilbury, Ontario. These dogs spent their entire lives being forced to fight, and endured horrific cruelty. When they were first rescued, animal lovers rejoiced. But a few months after their rescue, the Ontario SPCA placed an application before the court, requesting to have 21 of the dogs euthanized. They had made no attempt to rehabilitate these dogs. I was able to view some of their behavioral assessments, and most of them are great with people (only 4 of them showed some type of aggression toward humans), and their biggest challenge was dog (fear-)aggression. Something that can be fixed with time and patience, or at least managed.
What broke my heart was to see that none of these dogs has been named. Right now, these 21 dogs are shadows, ghosts. They will have endured a horrific life of abuse, and simply disappear, brushed under the rug, if the SPCA and the judge maintain their decision. .
👉OUR HOPE

@dogtalesrescue is a dog rescue - rehabilitation center that has offered to take in these dogs. They have put together a very detailed plan, and their team of experts believe these dogs are excellent candidates for rehabilitation. So far, their offer has been ignored. With this campaign, they are hoping that enough people raise their voice, that the Ontario SPCA and the court hear them at last. The only way to stop the euthanasia order, is if the Ontario SPCA withdraw their request to the judge. And we have a couple of weeks to have them do that. .
👉WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Visit www.SaveThe21.com to learn more about this campaign. There are printable signs available on the website, so print one and post a photo of yourself or your dog with the sign, using #SaveThe21. Later this week, a more concrete call for action will be shared, so stay tuned!

Day 1 away from babe and I see him in my dreams like... .
😅😂😂😂😂

Missing my little MacLovin today as I walk the grounds where we rescued him 2 months ago. I was told he had 2 brothers who got adopted. My little booboo came from Hell. .

More from MacLovin's story! Top left is the first time I laid my eyes on him at the shelter. Apparently, I texted a photo to my husband with the caption "Say hi to your new son " 🙈🙈🙈🙊 Bottom left: we moved him to a bigger kennel, away from dying puppies. I told him everything was going to be ok. He was so confused but I could see he was a great listener! Top right: intake with @thesatoproject and about 50 ticks were removed from his tiny body. Bottom right: Mac's first official portrait, taken that day at the shelter. 💚
