Artist Draws Followers’ Pets and Shares Their Adorable Stories

Charllotte Ashlie is a self-taught illustrator from Singapore who loves to draw animals, inspired by her beloved pet, miniature dachshund Nono.

Ashlie believes that every animal has its own story. In her series called, “Dollgift_petstory,” she draws random pets from her Instagram followers and shares their heartwarming stories with the world.

“Every piece of my art shares a story of love, hope and the simple joys of life. Some of them had a sad past, some were inspiring and moving while others were just adorable!,” she wrote on Bored Panda.

She hopes that her art will make people happy and promotes love and compassion towards all animals.

Hello, my name is Shamii Girl – momma’s sweet chubby chubs (but I really don’t think I’m chubby?). Last month I crossed over the rainbow bridge while momma was away for work in another country. She was heartbroken and couldn't stop blaming herself because of this. 💔 I had to leave without saying goodbye as I was needed back in heaven urgently. I'm so sorry momma…. please forgive me, and forgive yourself. It breaks my heart to see you sad. 😔 I am free now, which means I get to travel anywhere I want including visiting you in another country – no passport needed! Heh. If you miss me, just call my name and I’ll be there by your side, licking away all your tears and doing my little wiggly butt dance for you. ☺️❤️ . @chitowndoxie . .________________________ Every now and then, I’ll pick a pet to draw from my IG follower list.

Hello, my name is Lucky. I was abandoned but became the luckiest dog when I found my furever home in 2011! ☺️ I had the most amazing life any dog can ever ask for. My momma loved me to the moon and back – I don’t really know what that mean but I felt it with all my heart. ❤️ I earned my wings and returned to heaven two years ago but I’d never forget the wonderful memories we shared. Momma used to say I changed her life in so many ways, well, she changed mine too when she gave me a second chance at life. I know she misses me badly and still talks to me everyday. I just want her to know I heard her, I’m never far away. Her birthday is coming so I’d like to wish her a very blessed birthday. 🎂 I love you, momma. Thank you for your unconditional love, we’ll meet again someday, Lucky promise. 💕 @_mynameislucky . _________________________ Every now and then, I’ll pick a pet to draw from my list of followers.

Hello, my name is Molly (or Moo). I’m a long-haired dachshund who enjoys cuddles and ringing my potty bell incessantly for attention. If that doesn’t work, I put my toys right where momma is working (swipe left to see where I left them! 😌). I also let her knows it’s meal time by placing my toy in my food bowl. I’m such a good girl. ☺️ I have a sister, Banana Pancakes who is just as cute as I am. She has different ways of getting attention though – peeing on the floor and stealing daddy's toothbrush out of his travel case. I love my family. ☺️💜 .

Hello, my name is Chewie the little Chihuahua. My momma named me after Chewbacca because she said I made noises like a Wookie.. Does she means cookie? I love cookies!🍪 And pizza!!! 🍕 Momma says I can be a little bossy sometimes – I bite her toes when I don’t get my own way. But I also help undo her shoelaces when she gets home from work, I can be sweet like that. ☺️ I’m still a baby so I don’t have many hobbies yet beside eating, walkies in the park and sleeping. I think I'll be a big boy when I turn one next month! Will you celebrate my birthday with me? 🎂💕 .

Hello, my name is Peter Parker, everyone calls me Pete. One week ago I earned my wings and returned to heaven – I was finally free from pain, I feel so happy! 🌈 My only concern had been my momma. I know she must be so heartbroken. I was too, having to leave her. 💔 My brave momma had fought so many battles with me, for me… till the very end. But it was my time to go.. I lived 17 wonderful years on earth, that was very long for a dog! I was incredibly blessed. I wish my momma would know that I’m never far away. Sometimes I send her signs in the form of my scent, barking.. or I put her favourite song on radio.. and so many subtle signs! 💕 I love you momma. I’m doing very well so please don’t worry about me and take good care of yourself. And please tell Daisy I love her too (Daisy is my beautiful wife by the way ☺️). We will meet again someday. 💜🐶🌈 @peter_parker_and_harry_osborn @therealdaisylou . . _________________________ Every now and then, I’ll pick a pet to draw from my list of followers.

Hello, my name is Roxy and I’m a Pit Bull. I look like I’m wearing black leggings from side angle, isn’t that cute? ☺️ Can someone explain to me why are people so afraid of us and banned us from many places? I know some of my brothers and sisters may look ‘fierce’ but we are be extremely loyal, loving and sweet too. My momma adopted me when I was a little nugget and she still calls me that years later, so I believe I’m very very special! Sometimes I would bring my toy to momma when she is working on her computer to remind her to take a break. I would also jumped onto the table to give her kisses when she comes home from outside. ☺️💕 I wish everyone would give my brothers and sisters a chance to be their little nuggets too. ✨ .

Hello, my name is Artie. I’m a handsome short-legged boy (hey, you don’t have to be tall to look good!). 😎 My hobbies include swimming in the beautiful clear water near where we live, bed wars and guarding the house with little sister, Tasha. We take pride in protecting our pawrents from any harm, so when the squirrels or ‘dinosaurs’ come near, we’d bark our heads off! 🐿🦎😌 I love Tasha and her wonky ears (mom said that about her ears, not me 🙊). She always helps clean my non-wonky ears even though I don’t always share my toys with her. ☺️💕 Oh, I gotta go! Tasha spotted a suspect lurking nearby, we need to go save the world now! 😈 Talk to you guys again! 💜 . I’m in love with this pair of adorable siblings.

Hello, my name is Odie. Don’t look for my eyes because I have none. Something so bad must have happened that made me go blind years ago. 💔 Momma said I was shut down when she first met me. I don’t know what that means but I would become scared and aggressive when touched or jolted awake in terror when I slept. She said I came a long long way to my happy and trusting self today. I don’t remember my past and I don’t think it matters anymore. I am safe and very loved with sister Gracie now. If ‘Love is blind’, I must have given it a whole new meaning? ☺️💕 Thank you for saving us, momma. Now we get to share our stories with the world and hopefully more good people like our momma will rescue our friends too! 💜 @odieseyes . ._________________________ Every now and then, I’ll pick a pet to draw from my list of followers.

Hello, my name is Abbie. I’m 14 years young and almost blind. I fulfilled my mission on earth and returned to heaven few days ago. I’m so happy to reunite with my foster brother Roku! ☺️ I also met Nono, Phoebe, Peanut, Siouxsia, Maddy and many more… some are old friends, some new! We play, we eat, we nap and then we play some more. Basically just like how we used to on earth! Sometimes we would sit together on the cotton candy clouds and reminisce over our lives; thinking how blessed and full our lives were. I want to thank my pawrents for rescuing me and loving on me all these years. I love you so much. 💜 We know some of our families and friends are grieving over us and missing us, please know that we are always close by and we will meet again some day. Our little lives may be short on earth, our love is eternal. 🐶🌈💜✨ . . I wanted to continue to work on my book #dollgift_ihaveawish but my thoughts were hijacked by #dollgift_petstory. I constantly get these ‘messages’/ ‘voices’ and images about which pet to draw next, one after another. Sometimes I already have the ‘script’ (stories) forming in my head when their images popped up – any time of the day.. sometimes in the middle of the night and I had to get up to type them out in my phone so I could go back to sleep. To all the grieving pawrents, I hope these portraits and stories bring you some comfort. 💜 @abbiethedachshund @peanut_dachshund @momofsevendogs @waltersphoebe @fluffdogcrew . . . —————————————— Every now and then, I’ll pick a pet to draw from my list of followers.

Hello, my name is Odie. I’m a six year old albino Chiweenie. Everyone calls me a sweet boy. Some said I reminded them of Falkor the Luckdragon from The Neverending Story – Is he cutes like me? ☺️ I’ve recently lost the only home I ever knew.. my momma had to move to an assisted living facility because she is very old. They only allow her to keep one dog and so my 15 year old poodle brother went with her. She was heartbroken to have to leave me but the nice people at @dachshundsandfriendsrescue promised her that they will find me a loving home. I’m a very good boy (that’s what I was always told). Maybe I’ll bring you good luck just like the Lucky Dragon! I also get along well with other dogs (and cats too!) So will you love me and give me a home? 💜🐾 —————————————— If you’re able to adopt sweet Odie, please contact [email protected] @dachshundsandfriendsrescue @3weenies1koolkat . . —————————————— Every now and then, I’ll pick a pet to draw from my list of followers.
