Four years ago our family was ready to add a pet. Both my husband and I grew up with dogs in our family and we both have a special affection for canines. We adopted our sweet Merry dog from a rescue that promised they’d send us her vaccine and spay records in the mail because they couldn’t find them in the files they had brought with them to the adoption event. We shrugged it off, but weeks went by without any papers arriving in the mail and several months later our Merry girl was giving birth to puppies in my son’s bedroom. She was pregnant! As soon as Merry was recovered and physically able, we had her vaccinated and spayed. We also spent the next few months caring for all ten, yes ten, of her puppies as we worked diligently to find them homes. Thankfully Merry ended up in our home, where we knew the commitment we made when adopting her and worked through all the obstacles to keep her healthy and safe. She’s truly a part of our family and we can’t imagine not having her around.

My husband shares an extra special bond with Merry. The two if them just seem to speak each others language. I thought it would be fun to create this fun DIY Paw Print Art using Merry’s paw print.

I started by painting a blank canvas a light purple. I let it dry for several hours allowing it to set completely.

Then I dabbed some paint onto Merry’s paw and pressed it lightly onto the canvas.

We got a little messy, but I just covered up the paint with more purple.

Once Merry’s paw print was dry the project was complete! A crazy simple project that celebrates the canine in our lives.

Merry’s story is just one of many shelter dogs, but she’s enriched our lives. Rachael’s Rescue® was created for all of the forgotten and lost pets, the ones who might not have someone who loves them as much as they deserve. A portion of proceeds from each sale of Nutrish is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation, which helps animals in need through Rachael’s Rescue. Through September 2017, Rachael’s Rescue has donated more than $21 million dollars to pet charities and other organizations that do good for animals. The funds are used for food, medical supplies, treatments, and more for animals in need. Many more animals around the country need help, and through Rachael’s Rescue, together we can make a difference in the lives of many four-legged friends. By purchasing Rachael Ray Nutrish items and entering the sweepstakes above, you can help too.
