Another first for me today....a morning photo session, and there wasn't a kid in sight. Just Sugar!
This is Erica and Brian. Sugar is their 4 year old pit bull, and I'm smitten!
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not much of an animal person. I really like other people's pets, but just not in my house. Nothing personal. A family pet just hasn't been my thing. So, to be smitten....well, Sugar had to be quite the dog.
I know, I know.....we only spent a short hour together, but sometimes, you just know these things....
Erica and Brian have had Sugar ever since they started fostering dogs about a year and a half ago. Sugar was their first customer. Clearly, they were smitten too, and Sugar became part of their family.
Erica and Brian continue to foster dogs, and from what I understand, Sugar makes everyone feel right at home.
For years now, Henry has been asking for a dog. Ray and I have been less (!) than enthused. We've shrugged Henry off, telling him we'll discuss it when he is seven.
Um....guess who turns seven this year???
Seriously, if we could find a dog like Sugar, I think I'd consider it. (did I just write that??) I'll even admit that when I got home from this session, I googled "pit bull as a family pet." Turns out, at the beginning of the 20th century, the pit bull was the most popular family dog. With a kind upbringing and firm hand, these dogs are as gentle and loving as a Golden Retriever. (no, we're not getting a dog anytime soon. I'm just saying.....)
I told Erica and Brian that Sugar has clearly set the bar very high for any future pet photo sessions I may have. She was just so sweet and calm. And she posed for the camera like she had her picture taken everyday. I think Sugar even smiled once. (might have been for that treat though....)
Oh yeah, did I mention that Erica and Brian were pretty fabulous too. :)
So, I've totally gone on and on....It was just so much fun. Again, thank you Brian and Erica. It was great to meet you both. I can't wait to show you the rest of the pictures.
I'd love to hear from you. Click on "comments" below.
