And then along came Aana 💕 .
I never planned to have a dog, I never planned to have a Haflinger. Now I have 2 dogs and a Haflinger. Today 3 years ago I was volunteering in a castration project in Bosnia. Before I started my trip a friend asked me „so, will you come back with a second dog?“ „are you crazy?! I will not take a DOG back home! Sparky would go crazy“... well... and then I met Aana and it was love at first sight. It broke my heart to leave her at the trash dump where she lived and so I broke all my rules and she did come with me. There was never a second where I regretted this decision! Aana became part of our little family and even sparky loves her now 🐶💕
Ps: still, the only way to control a street dog population is to castrate them and leave them on the streets, so the pool is filled and the population of the ones you can’t capture increase in shortest period. But in this case I had to follow my heart ...

Vegas, 2018 A name like Vegas invokes curiosity and intrigue. She is a 14 year-old Greyhound that was adopted as a puppy. She was never raced, which is fairly unusual for these graceful dogs. She was a good sport about being photographed, most dogs are, particularly when food is involved.
This a personal project on the character and beauty of dogs and you are seeing it develop as I work through this #yearofthedog
Thanks for sharing your your dog pictures with me and for your suggestions, I’m touched by your outreach and kind words about this work. I wish I could travel to every place suggested and photograph all of the incredible dogs. Give me time, I’m just getting started - I post more of these @vincentjmusi where I welcome your input. #greyhound
Oh how I wish I had a before picture of this little dog. This little dog was curled in fear in the back of the shelter. I am so glad we decided to bring her home. Look at her now ❤️. Adoption save lives
