This is a portrait of my dog, Misty.  She thinks her name is "what a beautiful dog" because that's what people say when they see her.  She's a wonderful dog (despite the little vanity issue!).  I adopted her from our local Humane Society.  At first she wouldn't wag her tail and was very wary.  I had to keep an eye on her whenever other people were around to make sure she didn't growl or snap at them.  But she's blossomed quite a bit since then.  She wags her tail a lot now and loves it when people come to visit.  I won't say that no dog is beyond hope but after having Misty, I realize that even the most seemingly hopeless dog can blossom in the light of loving care and attention.
