For me, it was the runt of a litter. A scraggly Boxer with patchy, white fur, an under-bitten jaw, and golden soulful eyes.
Sam walked by my side from the purchase of my first home, job promotions, loss of friendships and family members. The big stuff. Eventually settling in quite nicely as a little family when I met my husband.
He was both the first to greet with a cold nose and a good ’scolding’ when I’d traveled for too long.
Always joyful, unless I wasn't. (He couldn’t take my tears and would wrap himself quite literally around me…licking my face in an attempt to make them stop).
He would ’sing’ for his supper.
Wiggle into the perfect ‘kidney bean’ when excited.
My Sammy boy offered perfect unconditional love. Well, except for those pouty episodes when I returned from a long trip. ;-)
This is what we photograph.
The perfect love and connection between pet owners and their children with fur.
As dog lovers, die-hard rescuers and advocates (who happen to be professional photographers) : we had no more room to foster or adopt.
This art project will result in a coffee table book and exhibit that will showcase Charlotte's supremely loved pooches!
