Making Memories

There is something magical about catching that perfect moment between an owner and their dog. That moment where you can see the love and bond between the two.

I love that I could capture this moment between Wendy and her dog Farkle at a recent shoot. Wendy is a special person and Farkle is a special dog. Wendy is actually the president and founder of a local rescue called Touch of Grey. Their mission is to save senior dogs that end up in our shelters and help them find the forever homes that they deserve to live their days out in. Farkle found his way into Wendy’s life as a very misunderstood adolescent dog. Farkle suffers from narcolepsy. Something in all my years of working with dogs, I had never encountered so closely. During our shoot, Farkle did pass out quite frequently. It would just be for seconds and then he would come back to life, but to a home that didn’t understand what was going on with him, it was definitely difficult to manage, so Wendy’s big heart was the perfect fit for this big, lovable guy.

Farkle is definitely one in a million. Not just because of his condition, but because he is just the sweetest, mushiest dog with a heart of gold. It was such a joy to do this shoot because Wendy not only wanted to capture the whimsy that is Farkle, but also to get some photos of them together that she could use in her new children’s book coming out.

That’s right… Wendy has a new book coming called “Farkle Finds His Furever Home”! Featuring Farkle as the star of the show, this book’s proceeds will go to help the Touch of Grey Rescue. So be sure to look for it. Not sure of the release date yet, but it will be sometime in 2022.

So kiss all your pups and appreciate those little moments together. I hope this photo will grace their walls for many years to come.
