A few months ago, Robyn Arouty — an extremely talented photographer and one of the most inspirational people I have had the honor of calling a friend — shared the above image on Facebook. It’s beautiful. It’s shocking. It’s uncomfortable. It’s hopeful… And it’s only part of the story.
In the weeks that followed, I eagerly anticipated updates from Robyn on the state of Kellan, the dog in the photo that represented a million dogs — and their uncertain stories — all at once. Was she healing? Thriving? Would she be adoptable?
Today, I’m happy to be able to share Kellan’s background and the photos that catalog her transformation. The following is the story of her journey, written by Robyn and re-published on Dog Milk with permission.
I was browsing West Elm the other day — y’know, like you do — when I came across Rachel Kozlowski‘s adorable Dapper Animal collection. The series features charming anthropomorphized dogs (and other animals) available as art prints or porcelain plates.

Since we’re all about living stylishly with our canine friends here at Dog Milk, Wrigley has put together a birthday wishlist — one item for every year. Check out his picks below!
Kamala Dolphin-Kingsley is a Portland, Oregon-based artist whose custom dog portraits are unlike any I’ve seen before. Her paintings have a magical, almost transcendental quality; the worlds and creatures that inhabit them seemingly depicted through a lens of childlike wonder — which makes perfect sense for someone who spent the days of their youth taking goats on walks though giant Redwood forests; creating communal banana slug, newt and centipede farms; and “dressing up pet rats and making them ride the dog”.
