Karyn McDonald

Acrylic on canvas

Luna is a 3 year old Wolfhound x American Staffordshire cross, who became a part of the McDonald family after being rescued from the RSPCA as a 12 week old puppy. Luna, although big in size, is big in heart. She is an enormous softy, who loves nothing better than being a couch potato, enjoying snuggles, cuddles, pats and playtime with anyone who will look at her. Luna also has a goofy sense of humour and goes out of her way to cheer others up. So much so, that the artist ("Aunty Karyn") formed a special bond with Luna in 2023, when faced with the trauma of caring for her then partner who was very ill with cancer. Through dedicated daily walks and playtime together, the two became best friends, helping Aunty Karyn through some very stressful and emotionally challenging times. Luna has become the best anti-depressant in the world!
