Art Project Raises Awareness For Shelter Dogs With Abstract Paintings Created By Dogs Shaking Paint Off Their Body

Catching dogs on camera during a particularly vigorous shake has become something of an art form. Canismo, a project from a group of Brazil-based artists, is turning water-logged pups into artists using a few buckets of non-toxic paint with the goal of supporting the adoption of shelter animals. The campaign gives dogs the freedom to express themselves and allow their inner artist to be seen, in a bright -literally bright, and adorable way. After having a harmless paint made with cornstarch and food coloring, pour all over their bodies, the dogs reacted by shaking it off onto canvases that were hanged around them. As stated in the description of the project, "the shake of the paint reveals a remarkable exercise of freedom, where each drop of ink bears the stain of prejudice." 18 unique artworks were created out of the project, which benefits the Procure1Amigo shelter.

Heroic Woman Opens Her Doors To 97 Dogs, Saving Them From Hurricane Dorian

This is the type of woman everyone should look up to! When the monster of a hurricane came crashing down in the Bahamas, Chella Phillips opened her doors to nearly 100 dogs in order to protect them. Phillips runs a rescue service for homeless dogs called 'Voiceless Dogs of Nassau' and has rescued nearly 1000 dogs. She now single-handedly saving 97 more. 

She posted images of all the pups in her humble place, on her Facebook page. In the post, Phillips describes the situation as "insane," adding that "97 dogs are inside my house and 79 of them are inside my master bedroom."

How is it to live with 97 dogs in such a confined area? Phillips wrote, "It has been insane since last night, poop and pee... non stop."

However, despite the insanity of the situation, Phillips said that her house guest have been very respectful of her bed, "nobody has dared to jump in," and miraculously, all the dogs have been wagging their tails and getting along just fine.  

Our guess is that they can sense the severity of the situation outside and are eternity grateful to Phillips for the warm and dry shelter.

People have donated crates to the house, to house the "scared ones and the sick ones." Phillips also mentioned that she's been entertaining her guests with some cartoons, that is until the power went out on Monday. 

In a Facebook update, "All services are down, all TVs are fried from the lightnings so no more cartoons for the sick dogs until we can purchase new ones," Phillips wrote. And despite saving nearly 100 dogs, Phillips couldn't help but feel heartache for other homeless dogs she didn't get to. 

"I pray for the other islands who have unimaginable damages and I don't see how any dogs or any living being could have survived outside. My heart goes out to them."

Hurricane Dorian, a Category 4 storm, sustained winds reached 297kmh, gusts up to 354kmh, and is officially tied the record for the most powerful Atlantic hurricane to ever make landfill. 

We hope this hurricane passes soon with no more damage and thank Chella Phillips for her selflessness and big heart.

Photographer Beautifully Captures The Purity of Doggo Maternity Shoots

Is there anything more darling than a maternity shoot? Sure there is! If your model just happens to be a loyal, pure of heart, good girl two-year-old Dachshund named Sugar! 

Sugar is expecting her first litter and who better to capture the moment than Washington-based photographer Laura Shockley? Laura Shockley specializes in maternity, as well as, newborn shoots. She made headlines last year due to her gasp-worthy shot of a newborn ecstatically outstretching his arms, as if thrilled to have finally arrived into this world.

Now, Shockley is sharing her newest photo-shoot via Facebook featuring a pregnant pup! "This little momma is going to grace us with some short legged puppers soon! I can not wait for the next milestone session for her, the grandmother (me) 'purchased' her the maternity/newborn package!," Laura wrote. 

Shockley told PopSugar that Sugar is, "getting close to the end of her pregnancy and we took her for a day filled with pup cups and peanut butter treats, [and] it ended with her maternity session. If people can feel special on their photo shoot days, so can Sugar!"

We are definitely on-board with that! 

Complete with images of Sugar rocking a flower crown and tulle, and surrounded by a field of flowers, here is Sugar's gorgeous and one-of-a-kind photo-shoot:
