From Puppy Mill to Painter – Art by Teddy

Teddy has been a very busy little guy! We’re so excited to announce his new collection of paw print art that will soon be available to purchase as prints, note cards and on canvas bags. Teddy’s collection will make its debut at Hops & Harley in Berthoud, Colorado on June 24th.

Included in the collection are 4 different paintings and Teddy explains each one to us:

Harley Flowers “Sunflowers make me think of my best buddy, Harley. He loved flowers and he loved the sun. I painted these flowers especially for him.” -Teddy

Free To Be Loved“One of the best things about living outside of the puppy mill is the freedom to be loved… and to love.” -Teddy

To See The Sky Is To Touch a Dream“Harley’s dad wrote this. I know what it means to see the sky and because of that, I have touched a dream … Harley’s Dream.” -Teddy

Somewhere Over The Rainbow“I painted this to honor those who have traveled over the Rainbow Bridge, but especially for my soulmate Gwinne, and my best buddy Harley.” -Teddy

We hope to have Teddy’s latest collection available for online purchase in the near future!

Be sure to follow Teddy on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where, when he’s not busy painting, he spends much of his time educating people about puppy mills!

I’m sure that demand for his creations will only grow in time. I wish I knew someone with a major news outlet to get this out to everyone!
