Mocha (12 Years Old), Client Session

Loved my session with Mocha...his tongue always hangs out and it's always on the left side. I may be a bit biased with my love for pugs but I think he's really special!

English Bulldogs are one of my favorite breeds. I used to work at an Emergency Animal Hospital and we had a very special Bulldog come into our care. Molly was just a tiny puppy and had been in a car accident which resulted in paralysis of her back end. It didn't seem to affect her personality, spirit or resolve to act like a normal puppy.

She'd drag herself around to "chase" after my pug. He seemed to sense that he needed to stop after every short burst of speed to allow her to catch up. She was friendly towards everyone and really wiggled her way into my heart.

The clinic was having a hard time finding someone that could look after a dog like her. She was going to need a cart, would need therapy, lots of veterinary care and someone to deal with bathroom issues etc. I BEGGED my husband. Told him that despite her issues she was the perfect addition to our already full household. Luckily he had more sense than I did...he said he'd love to take her in but we were not the ideal home for her. We had stairs, I wouldn't be able to lift her once she was full-grown, we were often away from the house for long periods at a time and it just wouldn't work. Years passed and I lost touch with what happened to her and I really feared that she'd never find a forever home that she deserved.

Back to yesterday's client session...I had THREE adult English Bulldogs in my "studio" and was having an absolute blast. When our time was up, I really didn't want them to leave!

Here's the kicker: Imagine how I felt to hear that their owner actually knows Molly! Small world. I got an update on her and it made my day. I don't have to wonder anymore - she's in the perfect home :-)

Finally back from my long trip to England and was greeted by a seizuring pug, a huge water leak from our hot water tank that our petsitter/homewatcher didn't know what to do about and my husband is in St. Maarten enjoying a private villa and beach vacation. Ugh. Welcome home! I guess it's payback for being lucky enough to travel as much as I want ;-)

So...moving on to something cute and fuzzy - here's an American Mink.

The American Mink was imported to Britain for fur farming in the 1920's...escapees and those deliberately released by animal activists bred successfully in the wild and these aggressive hunters are now responsible for the decline of many native species.

Haven't had a chance to really look through my photos from this trip yet but thought I should try and get one or two of them posted.

Been in England for more than 2.5 weeks now and really enjoying it. Until today I was staying in the West Sussex area with family and now I'm in Bristol which is a completely different atmosphere but just as interesting.

It's been a great mix of family time, catching up with old friends and photography. But I do have to say I'm dreading how much work I have to get caught up on and once I finally return home it's going to be a busy month!!
