Tia’s Story

Dogs are a great source of excitement and happiness, aren't they? Our canine friends have that spirit that keeps you on your toes and reminds you that every day is a new day – it can be exactly as exciting and as fun as you want it to be!

Many of our friends and clients know, coming into the Elite Image office sometimes doubles as visiting a puppy day care. Most days we have two min-pins, Tia and Bruno, that can be found lounging in the sunshine or bouncing at your feet looking for some extra lovin'.. (just kidding – they are looking for treats).

What some of you may not know is that recently, our little bouncing bean Tia has been fighting her own personal battle. When she was only six months old she was poisoned and the vet had said she wouldn't last the month. Well, she proved everyone wrong and here we are, six years later, and she's the happiest little puppy. That is, until she woke up on July 8th and no longer had her vision.

Since then, Tias life has had to endure major adjustments. She's been to the vet, and every type of -ologist that a little puppy can visit. But she's a fighter, and she hasn't lost her spirit!

We don't know if Tias sight will ever return, but watching her go through these changes over the last couple weeks has inspired us to tell her story.

Please join us in appreciation for Tia and other dogs that give us their unconditional love. Follow the link to donate your love and stories of all the times your dog has been there for you! Fore-go your next coffee and donate a dollar; fore-go your next frappachino and donate five dollars. Elite Image has started the donation pool with $250, and a portion of all of Augusts sales will be donated to the Vancouver Island Dogs Rescue Society where 100% of all the proceeds go directly towards the dogs.
