Who knew when I met this face for all of five minutes in September that just a couple of weeks later, our family would grow plus one. Her story is like that of so many shelter dogs, really. She was found initially as a stray and taken to the Charleston Animal Society where she was adopted out and twice returned. (We weren’t looking for another dog, but when I met her for shelter photos, she was wearing the same collar our Addie wore when she passed away so I felt it was a sign we were supposed to help her.) I’ll spare you the details of how this came to be, but fast forward a couple of weeks and, on October 11, we decided to make her a Taylor. When we found Roux, we weren’t looking either but it seems true that’s when love finds you – when you aren’t looking.
While I had a few local model call sittings (sprinkled on Facebook and Instagram) and some amazing Northern VA sessions in October, I’m still editing the bulk of those so they won’t pop up in your inbox until November. I’m devoting this month’s selection to Gracie.
Well, Gracie and Roux.
(Look how happy my boy is to have a sister!) Gracie doesn’t have any real modeling skills yet and the only things that throw her ears forward seem to be the sight of her food bowl and dolphin-pitched noises, but we’ll work on it over the next few months. Wish us luck as we have now been restored to multi-Catahoula status!
I have been asked how much a dog like her costs (as she appears to be purebred), and I was only too happy to reply “The price of an adoption fee.”
