“I know I’m gorgeous, but my mom’s art pillows help add to my beauty. My mom is an artist, Marina Kanavaki and she has a blog!

At this celebration you will meet many dogs. You will meet real dogs & graffiti dogs.”

Above is Clay & Ruty. Their mom is Belén Soto & she has a blog, too! Hmm, that looks like a park behind them! Of course, dogs LOVE to go to the park with their humans.

“Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018 & ends on February 4, 2019.”

“So, let me introduce this stunning white graffiti dog I met in Graffiti Alley in Toronto.”

“Many Graffiti dogs, like this St. Bernard, live in the alleys.”

Some like me, are rescue dogs. (Thank you mommy! ❤️🎵❤️.) The poor little thing below was rescued by Resa’s friend. Buddy was kept in 1 room, never had baths, never went to the park & lived in his own filth.”

“Buddy lives with Resa’s friend now. He goes to the park, gets baths & love.”

‘There is no Year Of The Human. When I see dogs like Buddy (and me before Marina found me) I know why.”

“However, I do wish there was The Year of the Mommies and Daddies Who Love Dogs, Mommies like Marina….. & Belén, where as you can see, there is no shortage of love.”

I learned that the rose was designated the official flower and floral emblem of the U.S.A. in 1986.

I learned that on May 9, 2016, President Obama signed the National Bison Legacy Act into law. This majestic animal joins the ranks of the Bald Eagle as the official symbol of your country.

Here Comes the Bride

Dear Belén, I’m so happy you flew with Lúa and Mar to the wedding!

As promised, here are the wedding photos. Sol’s wedding dress is very beautiful!

She can’t stop showing it off!

Didn’t you just love the look on Drake’s face when he saw Sol in the gown for the first time?

It was a beautiful ceremony.

Sol’s egg was a beautiful Flower Girl, even though it is not hatched, yet.

I thought Penelopoe The Witch did a lovely job presiding over the ceremony. I had no idea that Duck Weddings were so unique.

I loved the way Penelope led all of the Ducks in a quack-off as they circled over Drake and Sol, while they made their pledges to each other.

Of course, in duck weddings, the bride kisses the groom, and it was a beauty of a kiss.

Here’s the photo from prior to the ceremony, when the Wedding Party posed for a photograph. Click on it to see the full splendor!

From left to right: Mr. Wapojif (groom & DJ), Benji (Best Man) Drake, Sol, Mar (Maid of Honor) Lúa (Maid of Honor)

I know you were just as excited as I was, when after the ceremony, Sol threw the bouquet.

I remember how  happy we were when Ms. Zulu caught it.

Ms. Zulu was such a doll, handing out the Wedding Programmes. She’d like to remind everyone to take a souvenir Wedding Programme. (click on Programme to view &/or download)

Here’s a picture of the Wedding Cake, taken before the “INCIDENT”, which necessitated the last minute baking of chocolate cookies.

Wedding designed and shot by Resa – March – June, 2017 – Toronto Canada

Drake, Sol, Mar, Lúa & Penelope The Witch designed and made by Belén Soto from Arcilla y Fuego Belén lives in Vigo, Spain, and you can shop her fabulous creations at Cerámica Belén Soto

Benji – The Best Man

Special thanks to Anarette for bringing Benji and Ms. Zulu to the wedding

Special Thanks from Drake to: Mr. Wapojif, esteemed editor of “Professional Moron” for doubling up as groom and DJ.

The “INCIDENT” CAUGHT ON SECURITY CAMERA

Drake offers an explanation: Another duck, who looks just like him, has moved into the neighborhood. The cats hypnotized this “other” duck into craving  Red Velvet cake, due to the dark rich chocolate.

After that, Drake pleads the Fifth.

Well, I hope you like all of the pictures. Before I go, Sol wants to show you her first fitting. Although she thought the purple was a bit dark, she thought it was a gorgeous option.

Love Resa

Seasons Greetings – 2016

♫♫ Happy ♬ Holidays ♪♪ to you! ♫♫
