TGIF! It’s time for another 52 Week Project. This week’s theme is favorite toy.
This handsome guy is a retired hunting dog that was released to a shelter back east and then brought to the Maxfund. He’s a sweet old boy and pretty happy to carry around this stuffed toy for comfort. Hey, even a hunter needs a little security now and then. But I had to take it from him just for a minute so I could get a picture of his sweet face!
Now check out Sacramento dog photographer, Lisa Van Dyke and follow the links until you get back to StinkDog Photos.
This was a really tough week for me. I wasn’t planning on participating in the project this week but my husband encouraged me to and once we saw the theme he wouldn’t let me not participate.
As some of you know my very special boy Cleo became very ill this week and passed away. My bedtime pictures are not from our normal routine. They are during the day and I was trying to get my boy to lay still and rest in the hopes that he would get better. I laid on the floor next to him for two days, fed him, pet him, talked to him, and when I didn’t know what to say I read out loud to him. It was the part of the day that he got the most rest. I knew that he wasn’t really going to get better, the vet told us before we left that it wasn’t going to happen, but it wasn’t going to stop me from trying.
I’m so lucky that I had such a wonderful friend and companion in my life for so many years. I’m heartbroken and I will love this boy forever. Goodnight my sweet Cleo. Sweet dreams.
We don’t want you to be sad too so wipe those tears and go see what beautiful photos HMG Photography • Pet & Portrait Photographer in Parkton, MD has posted. Have a wonderful week and take care.
It’s Friday and time for another 52 Week Project. This week I had the pleasure of picking a theme and I picked naughty. Most of us have pets that do naughty things like digging in the yard or chewing on prized possessions. I thought it would be fun to capture that. However, Cleo is an older gentleman and at 12 he knows the rules, no chewing, no digging, no taking yourself for a walk. But food is too much of a temptation. If you leave any food out for even a second he will claim it for himself. I’ve walked into the kitchen to find a stick of butter with a tongue mark in it, powdered sugar on the floor with paw prints, and missing steaks. We’ve learned not to put food on the counter for any reason at all unless you are in the kitchen but this week I had to make an exception.
I am really excited to start a new blog and looking forward to update you about StinkDog Photos. Please stop by if you want to hear about upcoming events, Cleo, or you want to see pet photos from Denver animal rescues or new clients. I’m also looking forward to updating you on a group I joined called the 52 Week Project. It’s 52 weeks of photography challenges for professional pet photographers, our group is given a challenge at the beginning of the week and we post the results at the end of the week. Aside from the challenge, it should be fun and entertaining for both of us.
Thanks for stopping by, please visit often and tell your friends!!
