“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.”
“Ah, beauty, thy name is dog! Did I mention dogs LOVE to go to the park with their humans.”
“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.”
“Some dogs bay at the moon, even if they are painted & live in the alley.”
“Many graffiti dogs have gone into modelling and advertising.”
“Did I mention dogs like to go to the park?”
“Before I forget, I’d like to show you more pics of Ruty and Clay. Some are from when they were puppies.”
“So, While I’m being a good Hera waiting for Marina to take me to the park,”
“Canada’s Parliament declared December 6th the “National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women”, following the murder of 14 female engineering students at l’École Polytechnique de Montreal in 1989.”
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women took place on November 25 and marked the first day of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. This ends on December 10, with International Human Rights Day.
There might be an event near you, no matter where you live in Canada, that you can attend.
Or, put it out on social media.
Does the country you live in have a day for Action on Violence Against Women?
Including the header, there 14 images of women in this post, one for each of the women of Remembrance on December 6. 9 are from back alleys, 4 are in underpasses & 1 is found in a deserted industry lot.
