Rhyme of a Rescue Dog

Limited Edition Linoprint

SOLD OUT

This print was inspired by the thousands of dogs in rescue homes and shelters around the world, who are waiting for their forever home.

This print was inspired by the thousands of dogs in rescue homes and shelters around the world, who are waiting for their forever home.

Taking the form of a poem, written by a rescued dog, it is a heartfelt 'ode of gratitude' to all those who have let a rescue dog into their hearts and homes.

Intrigued by the stories of how people come to choose the dog they will take home, this print is a tribute to the great leap of faith people make when rescuing a dog and, despite the terrible ordeals that many of these dogs have had to endure, people are prepared to take that leap and create their own happy endings.

Lots of people tell me that, in retrospect, they are not sure whether it is they who have rescued the dog, or the dog that has rescued them!

opening quote mark illustration
I received my print - absolutely love it. I purchased it in memory of my rescue dog who I got seven years ago and who passed away this June. It broke my heart and left me gutted. This poem reminds me so much of what he meant to me… thanks so much I love it.

This print is now sold out

It was a limited-edition of 144 prints on Japanese Hosho paper, created from two linoleum plates. All the dogs and letters of the poem were carved by hand (in reverse) into the two plates - one for each colour - and hand printed using an etching press.

Rhyme of a Rescue Dog Fine Art Print

This original linoprint was so popular that once the edition sold out I decided to create a new piece of original art using collage, drawing ink and acrylic paint. This is now available as a fine art print. It is printed using archival quality inks on matt acid free paper to faithfully reproduce the textures and subtle colours of the original artwork.
