In the winter of 2018, I got to meet the real Dobby. The Instagram Star Dobby :)
I probably like to travel as much as I like music and painting. The past trips I planned were with my (over)cherished goddaughter and my boyfriend. We are a great team when it comes to planning a new trip but the last one was us two girls heading to California !
So we ended up in San Francisco, we did visit the National Sequoia Forest, Los Angeles and San Diego, it was a nice little road trip !
When planning for it, we were looking for some activities to book along the way and I had in mind something to do with the animals. I discovered an exotic animal sanctuary North of LA. Their mission is to provide for animals that were imported in the USA by people with lot of money but not as much moral.
They were offering an hour with the monkeys, and since this was a dream of mine (to play with monkeyyyys !) I was barely negociable as to weither or not we should do it. And (surprise!) we did play with the monkeys. I cried. Just a bit. And after the first hour we got the complete tour of the shelter. They take care of so many special friends there ! One of them is Dobby, a fennec fox that likes to cuddle with visitors :)
We fell in love and as soon as I got back to my brushes I had to paint his portrait.
