EAH! has a doggy, CB, Creamy Blue By Eva Anna Hekking EAH! Head Writer The positive protest bags against fur to inspire to use fake fur in fashion turned to be a big success. Even an Italian brand decided to copy these bags. Recently she decided to support the Mirtos Project, tourist volunteers who are saving mistreated dogs and cats from Crete in Greece. Last year they replaced about 300 dogs in Dutch families, but unfortunately still a small number compared to the amount of mistreated dogs in Greece and not speaking of the rest of the world. A three months old puppy dog, Cream, was found left alone in an old building with her sister Caramel. They are

saved by the volunteers of the Mirtos Project, now both have a nice life in Holland. Cream and EAH! fell in love since the very first moment they meet. There were more reasons that convinced EAH! this is meant to be. Her parents had their honeymoon on Crete, her inspiring baroness grandmother van Lamsweerde had two Malthezer lion dogs and almost of you know EAH! has a certain affection with ‘Cream’. Creamy Blue Brown has one blue and brown eye. She’s a Greek goddess mix and we expect she stays quite small. She’s very happy and relaxed doggy and loves playing in the Vondelparc. Of course EAH! plans to design some special dog bags in the near future, but above all she really hopes to inspire others to consider adopting a dog by this great project. Please take some time to check it out.
