Two months after her husband died, Sunnie was ready to leave her job as a receptionist for a small business in rural Victoria.
“My husband was always telling me I could do anything in life,” Sunnie said.
“He loved to do things and I was always asking him to help out and he would do it.”
After a short period of time in the business, Sunnis husband had been diagnosed with cancer and her job had been outsourced to another company.
“So when he died I was really depressed,” she said.
After a few months of grieving, Sunnes husband had started a blog and asked people to paint a picture of him.
“I was looking for a hobby,” she recalled.
“And when I saw a dog painting tutorial and it was so helpful, I thought I would give it a try.”
It was a simple and easy task.
The tutorial was a free downloadable video, so Sunnes decided to take it on.
“When I found out the dogs were paint painting, I was so excited,” she told FourFour2.
“The best part was that they were very supportive and it made it so easy for me to paint.” “
She started by painting a picture and then asked her friends to help her. “

“There were a lot of dogs, they all wanted to do it,” Sunnis said.
She was also inspired by the dogs who have been featured on the show.
“We were talking about how much I loved to paint and they said, ‘Oh, you don’t have to paint the dog’.”
It’s a real honor that we’re able to show dogs in a show that are paint painting,” Sunnes said.
The videos were uploaded on a website and the dogs loved the work.
Her website also features a number of other dog owners who are interested in painting, including one with a large and powerful Labrador mix. “
That’s how I started my website, it was just like a way to give back to the community,” Sunns said.

“As a professional, she really has an understanding of the work she’s doing and has a lot more of a background in the field than most people do,” Sunnys husband said.
Sunns has also written an illustrated guide for pet owners to help them learn how to paint their dog.
“She has so much expertise and she’s able to share it with other people,” Sunner said.
For Sunns, painting is not just about getting to the end of the day.
“For the dogs I really feel like, when I paint a painting, it’s an expression of love, an expression that they’re looking forward to and I love that,” she added.
“If it was for someone else, I would not paint them.
I don’t paint them just to be a person, I paint them for their health and happiness.”
