This week's pet photography theme is 'shelter' and while I take a lot of photographs of dogs that are being sheltered by local rescues from the life they previously experienced - I decided to share a story about Jimbo from several years ago.
Jimbo was in our lives for just over 7 years - and we had many adventures together during that time. When Jimbo arrived to live with us he was very afraid of thunder and while he got better over the years, he never really did like thunder. I can't say that I blame him, he probably lived outdoors for the first 7 years of his life.
One year we were off on a trip to Cashiers, North Carolina - and we took Jimbo with us to do the hiking and photographing with us. It was a beautiful day (or so I thought). Jim and I are taking photographs, Jimbo is keeping watch over us while we take photos.
And less than 7 minutes later - after a single rumble of thunder, Jimbo has taken shelter under a large rock and looks totally different (not sure if this is annoyed, scared or a bit of both). Of course, I went over to comfort him and we left shortly there after because there is nothing I dislike more than making Jimbo uncomfortable with about the only thing he was truly afraid.
That's it for this week's pet photography blog. For more pet photographers sharing their take on this theme, head over to visit Tracy Allard of Penny Whistle Photography fetching pet and family portraits in Coppell, Carrollton and the greater Dallas - Fort Worth metroplex.
