Breaking through Walls

We’re trying something new-think of it as a work in progress.

Today was the first day I took Anna to the area where I have taken a lot of Hubble’s and Jack Henry’s portraits. She was clearly uncomfortable being out of her comfort zone, but she let me pick her up and place her on the chest. 

As I have mentioned before Anna is a very shy and nervous dog. She has little confidence and has struggled to just be a dog–something she was never really allowed to do. Building a bond of trust with her has been challenging and progress has been slow. I decide that we are going to work more on these photo sessions-So once a month I hope to post a portrait and we will see where we are by year’s end. It is my hope that the uncertain and frightened look captured today will give way to one that is more confident and happy. Still I think it an honest portrait that shows Anna as she sees her surroundings today.

Today’s dog quote:

“When a man’s best friend is his dog, that dog has a problem.”
– Edward Abbey

    • Thank you Sally-she really is a beautiful dog and wonderful example of her breed-if we can just get her confidence up some more-I think she will be an even happier dog-Thank you always for stopping by-


  1. The picture of Anna looks exactly how you describe her character. Still she looks so beautiful. I look forward to eventually see pictures of her with more confidence.


Arf! Arf!
