Tiger by the Tail

Tiger is a great dog. And she’s going to do great things. You see, Tiger is going to be a service dog. She’ll be assisting someone who has lost their sight. As part of their training, these dogs are given to “foster” owners to raise for about a year of their lives and then they must give them up. If you’ve ever owned a dog, you know how deeply attached you can become. The end of this month is when Tiger has to go back.

When Tiger’s foster “mom”, Anna, left town for a vacation, her friends arranged for me to do a pet portrait session so that Anna would have a special memory of Tiger. She finally saw the photos when she got back into town. In her words to me, “THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! The pictures are SO BEAUTIFUL!!

Shot in the lovely Irmo Town Park, here are a couple from the session.

    Animal portraiture is always so fun. It’s great to take photos of dogs, whether in a park or on the beach. You did a nice job with “Tiger.”

    I’m sure Tiger’s foster mom will treasure these photos. Our last dog was a yellow lab, they’re great companions and very intelligent creatures. Whoever Tiger is paired with is very fortunate.
