“Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog,” the quote by Sydney Jeanne Seward reminds. Blessed, indeed, as English Lab George’s mom, Christy, knows firsthand.
“George was a supposed to be a foster dog to help out a friend. He came for Easter weekend and never left. Although I was very reluctant to bring a second dog into the our house at the time–and joked that he was my husband’s mid-life crisis–he turned out to be my saving grace as we embarked on an out-of-state move.”
The couple’s first dog was a black Lab named Martha Washington, so when they rescued George [at four-years-old], they thought it was only fitting to name him George. At 14-years-old, Christy says her English Lab is as sweet as can be. His warm, happy-go-lucky smile is one of her favorite things about him and something she hoped I’d be able to capture.
It was a quintessential fall evening in South Park, full of warmth and beauty, much like the bond these two share. Christy will soon have this gorgeous image of George installed in her home as a 16×20 gallery-wrapped canvas.
Thank you, Christy, for a wonderful session with your sweet boy! The love and connection you share with George–and vice versa–is obvious, and I know you will treasure this day every time you look at your baby’s custom artwork.
