Leading Lost Hearts Home

Started in 2014 and observed every April 23rd, today is National Lost Dog Awareness.

As described at National Calendar Days (continuing with Charlie’s invitation):

“This day was created not only to bring awareness to the dogs that go missing but to also celebrate the reunions.  Through networks of shelters, veterinaries, social media and other media sources, many lost canines are reunited with their loved ones. National Lost Dog Awareness Day is an opportunity to learn more about prevention and networking.”

Positive thoughts and prayers for the lost that they find their way home, for the searching that they find their friends, and for the many in between who help reconnect hearts.

If prayers were bells

All the world would hear ringing

Leading lost hearts home

      Thank you, I am so glad you liked this and happy you picked up on the statue reference. The inspiration for the drawing came from the Okinawan Shisa, dog guardians, with a nod to the Chinese Shi, and the ball the male usually has under paw.

    Beautiful drawing, Haunani :-). Like Teresa said, a wonderful twist on the Chinese lions. I read a bit about the lions, so now I know which is male and which is female. What is the symbol you put on the male dog’s collar? Your ringing tree and poem are lovely too.
