Sea Creatures for Baby Shark
All original artwork for my Baby Shark, Millie Grace Robertson.

Millie Grace Robertson, the daughter of Yarmouth locals Caroline and Derek Robertson, was born December 23, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario at 7:08 am. She was born with a severe form of hypo-plastic left heart syndrome and later was diagnosed with a deadly disease called pulmonary vein stenosis. She was transferred directly to Toronto Sick Kids Hospital the day she was born. In Millie’s sixteen months of life, she endured 10 open heart procedures, 5 catheter procedures and numerous blood work, needles and medication. But she also was surrounded by so much love and brought joy everywhere she went. She was the toughest and sweetest child there ever was. She loved to dance, wave and give kisses. She passed away on May 2, 2018 as a result of a severe blood clot that led to prolonged cardiac arrest causing extensive and irreparable brain damage.

“During our constant fight with Mille, we never once felt alone. Our community surrounded us with love and kindness. Someone was always available to help and provide anything we needed. We hadn’t lived in Yarmouth very long but our community embraced us and our child like we belonged. They made some of the most difficult times easier and we will forever be grateful. “

Caroline and Derek referred to Millie as their “baby shark”. After she died, Caroline found peace in drawing colourful sea creatures for Millie. A portion of the proceeds from Sea Creatures for Baby Shark are donated to the Toronto Hospital of Sick Children in Millie’s name.

Doodles of my Doodles
All original artwork of my Labradoodles, Kirby and Ella.

In 2014 the Yarmouth Dog Park project grew out of a grassroots community led initiative. Every time Caroline would go away with Millie for treatment in Toronto she was excited to return home to a new community dog park where she could spend time with her family.

Unfortunately, after four long years, the project still have not been completed. Currently the community is fundraising for fence sections. All proceeds from Doodle Drawings go to making this park a reality. Thank you so much for your support.

Kirby is a four year old chocolate Labradoodle who loves going to the beach, getting her ears rubbed, and riding in the car. Her favourite past time is laying in the backyard with a tennis ball watching her dad work in his garage.

Ella is Kirby’s beautiful daughter. Ella is a two year old chocolate Labradoodle who loves being the little spoon. Ella can be found everywhere her momma goes. Ella enjoys teasing the neighbour dogs, leaping through the air and hiding under the bed.
