The more I develop myself over the years the more I learn that things I love and that are important to me fit together. I have been a long time dog lover. And over the last few years I have become an increasingly avid runner. I have been making more time to run than to do most other things in my life these days. I never thought I would say that. As I have been getting more into running I have really been wanting to be able to run with one of my dogs. I have tried in the past to run with one of our dogs but it didn’t really work out well for either of us. But I am thinking that I may try to get more dedicated to this idea. So today I set out with my new running partner today.
I loved my time photographing this old man dog, Luke, back in 2014. He was such a joy. It is great to see it when an older dog still has the spark. This is some of the great work the Chemung County SPCA does. They make sure older dogs like Luke have a home to live out the rest of their years the way it should be.
I am currently working on a project to help bring more awareness to the amazing work the Chemung County SPCA does. The project will consist of an art exhibit, on display at the Chemung County Historical Society, featuring photographs of dogs that have been at the shelter. Learn more about this project ans support hit here: Shelter Dogs at the Museum: Part 2. The exhibit will begin June.
This is Troy. Who wouldn’t want to bring home this big slobbery guy. Look at him slinging the slobber after playing in the pool. He is a bundle of energy and would need lots of exercise. Go visit him at the Chemung County SPCA if you want someone to play with.
Visit my project Shelter Dogs at the Museum for an opportunity to support a unique art exhibit with the goal of raising awareness of shelter dogs.
I’ve made a lot of friends over the years and if you are a dog lover like me you count a lot of dogs among them. Two of my best friends became part of my lives completely by coincidence. We met our dogs Brynn and Kira at the Chemung County SPCA and they became family.
I spent some time over the weekend hanging out with my pals at the shelter. I absolutely love this part of what I do. I get to meet so many great dogs. They don’t know me and I don’t know them but somehow when we get together we are always able to have some fun and create some great images to share with our friends out there in the world.
Maisey is a friendly Jack Russel mix. Maisey is a pretty tiny mix breed dog but she is a little spitfire. She is friendly and fun.
