LAPA is one of this year’s charities, and they have come to the party with this beautiful art they have from a fundraiser they ran previously. All the artworks were inspired by real animals that LAPA helped.
Marina Skepner – Bosya, 2016
Bosya has been abandoned after his owners have had a baby. Bosya is now dreaming of having a new family.
Obviously, dogs perceive this reality differently from the way we, humans, do. They say, for instance, that among the colours they only distinctly see black and white, yellow and dark blue to some extent.
Here we see Bosya standing on his very long and slim legs that being a tribute to Dali’s works also means that Bosya is very vulnerable and fragile after having been abandoned.
Bosya was saved by a shelter in Engels, Central Russia. His owners had a baby and decided it was too hard for them to keep their flat clean with Bosya there. They took Bosya to a vet to have him put to sleep! The vets refused and dropped him off at the shelter. The shelter was bursting at the seams but they took him in. Bosya cried and cried in his kennel, refused to eat and did not want to make friends for a long time. Slowly he got used to the shelter life but he still finds it hard.
