Thankful for

First let me say Happy Thanksgiving to you all, I am so glad to be able to share my blog with each of you.  I am so thankful to be able to write this blog and have your feedback, sharing the love of dogs with you all.  Dogs bring such joy to all who truly share their lives with one or more.  Even the dogs that may not live with you but simply pass through your life on perhaps a brief encounter can bring much happiness.  Tuesday brought to me an hour of sheer bliss as I spent time with a five month old Borzoi.  I did a shoot with the young pup as we meandered through the woods with her Mom.  She was probably one of the sweetest puppies I've met in a while.

I am thankful for so many things in my life, of course my family; my wonderful husband, my three amazing children and yes my dogs.  My life revolves around dogs and I am thankful each and everyday that I get to share it with my three.   As I lay by the fire last snuggled up with all three on the giant dog bed I thought to myself  "how lucky am I?"  

And it is not only my dogs that I am thankful for, all the dogs that I get to meet and interact with throughout my days add so much to my life.  I am always honored to have met them and been able to either help in their education or photograph them.   Often I am privy to their affection which of course is just added bonus.  There are times when  a client dog gives me a snuggle or face touch, it just doesn't get any better.    I also love to hear about others and their dogs; their stories of an amazing life shared.  And yes, I love to see your images of all the dogs that you spend your life with, the loves of your life.

On this Thanksgiving day, give thanks to that four legged family member.  After all how lucky are we to spend our lives with dogs?
