Gabby (aka: Gabbsters) is an amazing Basset Hound that has an equally amazing mother. I was commissioned to photograph Gabby last year after her mom realized that Gabby may not have that long to live. She was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure and she was very ill at the time. When I met Gabby I knew right away that this lady was something special. When she was rescued by her mother she was already blind, but I can tell you this doesn’t stop Gabby. She knew her way around and had a very keen awareness of everything around her. Fast forward 7 months later and we have a Gabbsters that seems better than ever. I will tell you what the secret is – she has a mother that is extremely devoted to her and loves her so very much. I have seen the tons of medicines administered and I have heard first hand all that Gabby’s mom does on a daily basis. I was so very happy to have the opportunity to come out and give Gabby her very own special private session. The images are going to make a fantastic book that I know Gabby’s mom will cherish forever. Thank you so much for including me in your lives.
Updated on 9/9/10 to add: Gabby passed away today after emergency kidney surgery. RIP sweet Gabby. You are a very special girl and you will be dearly missed.
Gabby has 10lb ears or at least they look like 10lbs… you can fly, you can fly, you can fly!
Gabby went on a little trip during our session, so we could get…
these shots in the gorgeous wildflowers
Taking a rest on the cool floor
Look at what’s under all that skin!
You are a beautiful girl Gabby
