Three Basset Beauties

These three Basset Hound girls were just lovely. They each had such unique personalities and were extremely loving and patient. Two of the girls – Gabby and Daisy were both rescue dogs. They both are blind but you would never know it. Gabby would look right at me if I even breathed in her direction – a very keen girl. Lucy is the oldest of the three but she has a childish smile and a twinkle in her eye that keeps her looking like a young gal.

The most difficult part of photographing pets is when there is a pet that is sick and terminally ill. The urgency to capture this moment in time is overwhelming and the emotions are hard to overcome with every click of the shutter. Gabby, pictured first below, has congestive heart failure. My heart goes out to her and her mom – who loves her dearly.
