What inspired Teddy to take action against puppy mills and support his best buddy Harley through his art? We asked him!
“As most of you know I was always Harley’s best buddy and his team driver when we went on rescues. He led the way and I followed. This past year I’ve been a little lost trying to figure out my role in helping to fight puppy mills. Not only did I lose Harley, I also lost my Gwinnie and I’ve been having some health issues lately. I’ve never been a leader and was always most comfortable as the sidekick, the Robin to Harley’s Batman. And I’m just a little old Chihuahua, a puppy mill survivor with tiny paws and no thumbs. There’s not much I can do, right?
“But as I’ve always said ‘EVERYONE CAN DO SOMETHING’! So, with the help of Mom and some friends, I put paw to canvas and tried to create a few little pieces of artwork that I thought might possibly be liked enough to attract a few bids in the Harley’s Dream Auction.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I expect the type of response that my little creative works are getting. The support is humbling and has inspired me SO very much! It proves to me that everyone can do something to help the puppy mill dogs, even a little old guy with no thumbs, like me.
“I’m now very committed, energized, and creatively inspired to do even more and I really hope Harley is proud of what I’m trying to do with my paw print painting.”
Love, Teddy #HarleysDreamKeeper
