February was so full of ups and downs for me – so much
to love about it, but we also suffered the loss
of a few very special canine friends as well. My heart continues
to be with their families.
The month started off
with an awesome mini-session with Piper (and her human sisters)
at a local waterfront park. Piper is a petite, outgoing little
lady, who was adopted from Charleston Animal Society (at the
Lowcountry Pet Expo) in 2015. They met her on-site at the expo
and they knew she was meant to be a part of their family!
Work, of course, continued
with Charleston Animal Society and, as occurs every visit, I
had a favorite or two … or thirty. All I see in this photo
is love. This is Lydia – she’s got some scars, but
it hasn’t ruined her outlook.
I also had the opportunity
to fawn over adorable 13-month old client dog, Yogi. His people
brought him home when he was three weeks old and weighed all
of 12 ounces! I’ve seen the baby picture and it’s
tres’ adorbs! Meeting him, I think it’s
safe to say he rules the roost.
I just had to check out
the crazy popular Southeastern Wildlife Exposition – more
specifically, DOCK DIVING DOGS! My goal was to go and watch
to see if it was something Roux may enjoy – and I ended
up falling into a new shooting obsession. Just a couple posted
on this page, but click
here to view a quick event album with some snaps from my field
Speaking of Roux, February
was a great month for his resume! He was entered in a local
competition at Isle of Palms where judges awarded him BEST
EYES. He then came home with the prize of Cutest
Pet in the City of Goose Creek in another local photo
contest. Go, Roux!
We were also especially
proud of client-turned-friend Piccolina (below), who won BEST
RESCUE STORY - FEMALE at the Isle of Palms event!
And while Roux’s
gal-pal Meri refused to show her beautiful ears in the actual
competition, we still find her to be MOST EAR-ISISTIBLE.
As always, please remember
to think of adoption as your first option. So many amazing pets
are just waiting in shelters for someone to love them.
I am very much looking
forward to the official start of spring, along with my Northern
VA trip for sessions and a mini-session event!
