A Lovely Fall Weekend

Cares4Pets is putting together a 2011 calender filled with adoption success stories along with photos of the happy families. I've been assigned the task of photographer and this past weekend I got started with two delightful women and their pups.

DocDufresne, my dutiful assistant, and I met up with Sandra and her lovely lab/pointer mix, Montana in Clark Park. Montana is a senior lady and was rescued from a breeding operation where she was going to be put down due to the fact that she wasn't producing litters any more. She's adorable and very sweet. She also clearly loves Sandra dearly. Here are some of my favorite photos from the session. After our session in Clark Park, DocDufresne and I took a lovely walk to Woodlands Cemetery, which is a great spot where we spent some time when DocDufresne lived in the neighborhood. There we met up with Beth and her cutie pie, Gizmo, who was rescued from running across a busy street. One of our photo spots was commandeered by some sort of amateur film crew that was shooting footage of a small metal bird cage... Clearly it was a good spot. Luckily, I'm really happy with several of the photos that were taken with a lovely honey locust in the background.
Earlier that day I worked with a great group of volunteers. We rescued native tulip poplars, sweet gum, sweet birch, white pine, and read oaks from a meadow that will be mowed in the spring. It was such a lovely weekend.
