When I moved to Calgary, I didn’t need my camera anymore. I worked with a staff of incredibly talented photojournalists and my gear was too basic and outdated.
I got rid of it all.
Two years later, this magnificent beast entered my life. Shep, the Maremma sheepdog, turned a high-heel wearing, Mustang-driving city girl into an SUV-owning mountain-hiking gal.
And he put a camera back in my hand.
Because you can’t go to the majestic Rocky Mountains with a boy this good looking and not take pictures.
Today, I only have his collar, my memories of him and a precious collection of pictures from our time together.
My mission now is to make sure pet lovers like me have beautiful paw prints to honor the bond they share with their special family member.
