Back by popular demand, it's HENRI!!!! And, he is wearing a biker hat & not realizing that he is too close to the lens. I don't think I could ever not be shooting this dog if I owned him.
October 11 - Asbury Park
Mojo is one of the first bulldogs I met at a MidAtlantic Bulldog Rescue event. He, like every bulldog ever, is adorable. He also likes to have his butt scratched.
I think Shayla is about five months old. I first met her shortly after she was adopted and moved to New Jersey. I witnessed her first footsteps on the sands of the Jersey Shore. Here she is at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park on October 11, 2014. She is wearing a pink dress and a pink cowboy hat because she is awesome and all English Bulldogs look great in hats. She & her bully brother have spina bifada. I never cease to be inspired by them and their devoted human. It takes a special heart to voluntarily adopt a pet with special needs. It doesn't take much of a heart to find Shayla adorable though.
While walking on the Ocean Grove boardwalk last night, I met Precious. She is 14 1/2 years old and this was her first time walking on the beach & in the ocean. She and her humans were visiting from Staten Island. Just a month ago, she had her second stroke but, looking at her huge smile last night, you could never tell.
My apologies for the grainy photos. Sometimes it is better to capture the moment than lament the poor lighting.
If you are Precious' humans, don't forget to email me at:
This is Luka. Clearly, she is not the first dog I have ever met but her photo is a great introduction to what you may find here. I love bulldogs & I love people who take part in animal rescue. Luka had spina bifada & wore these wheels to get around. At just over a year old, she passed away. You can't see her wheels here but I know they're there. I don't think she knew or, if she did, she didn't care. Rest in peace Luka. Thank you for continuing to inspire me. If you didn't let wheels get you down, who am I to let anything get me down.
On that note, I welcome you to the wonderful world of I MET A DOG!!!!
I am a photographer. Most of these photos depict casual encounters with dogs that have crossed my path. I hope they make you as happy as they make me.
