RESCUED: That's my boy by Flint$ by CCB-18 RESCUED: That's my boy by Flint$ by CCB-18
Now before we go any further, let me say here and now that I DIDN'T steal this, but saved it since the artist has vanished from DA, and cannot be found anywhere, even via Google. (See here; A Rescue Folder...)

For the record, I believe the artist of this piece named her Starlight and it stuck with other fans (since she was officially given no name in the episode "A Day in the Life")

*

This image was also what helped me create the background story of my RR OC Vicky; fav.me/dan5o72 when the Master unveiled the truth about her "family" to her.

It started when the area around Starlight's farm had a sudden attack via a toxic cloud that swept the land - thankfully all human life had been evacuated previously, but Starlight's owners were in Ohio at the time and were unaware of what was happening.

After dealing with the cloud, Starlight was rescued  by the Rovers and brought to the Golden Hydrants, otherwise the government might've had her put down. Professor Hubert was able to cure her, but kept her under observation.

Later, when the Rovers went to stop any further attacks and came up against Parvo, only to get captured and dangled over a pit of bubbling acid (like in "A Day in the Life"), all Vicky, Starlight and the Master could do was watch via a video link. When Vicky pleaded with the Master to find help, the Master saw only one course open. He showed Vicky into the Transdogmafier Chamber and asked Starlight to step in, therefore turning Starlight into a Road Rover.

But as a Rover, something remarkable happened to Starlight, turned out Professor Hubert's formula improved vastly when Starlight took Rover form. However, it only seemed to have full effect on Starlight as a Rover, so she must remain in CanoSapian form for the rest of her life, for if she turned back into being a dog, the antidote would no longer cure her and she could die...

Yet, Starlight doesn't mind. Now she can share her son's life, which has given her a new leash of life (dog-pun there). And not only has Hunter given her a new life, but also her first grandchild (though, technically Starlight was expecting actual puppies, but Hunter adopting Vicky worked just as well for Starlight), so he's done more than he could imagine.

Starlight now lives at the Golden Hydrants as a Rover Reserve, but the rest of the time, she's the housekeeper (sort of like mixture of Mrs Bear from Rupert, Grandma Tracy in the classic ThunderBirds episodes, or even Granny in Beverley Hillbillies), keeping the place tidy, having food ready for them when Shag's not about (and even she never uses toilet water) and helping in looking after Vicky.

I hope viewers okay with this, and wherever you are Flint$, I shall try keep your legacy alive...

I'm sorry to say...no, I'm afraid I don't.

You could ask the original artist, :iconflintentstudios:...

Its nice that you were able to save some of Flint's works, dude. This is very nice work of his. I still remember when he was passionate about Road Rovers. But oh well, everything changes over time.

Starlight, is it? Huh, kind of reminds me of the name of Rainbow Brite's horse.

Do you know how hard it is to find that art of his?

Yep, that is definitely hard to search his art. Can you just ask him about his art
