Toby: young and old
Toby, my old dog
It feels like Toby has changed quickly from a young, active dog to an old settled dog. I look at him and hope that I’m doing my best to keep him happy as his body slowly fails him. He’s been my best subject ever since we adopted him and, like I said in my last post, he is the emphasis on why I now focus on pet photography. I love my old man and want him to be happy and healthy.
As an old dog, we have been careful to keep a check on his new bumps and how he’s changing. It made me go back and look at some of my favorite photos I’ve taken over the years. This photo was one that I took as my first promotional postcard. I made 500 and mailed it out to every pet business around Boston and hoped that someone would be interested. I got ONE response. It was a start and that lead to me doing some events and trying to create more work for more people.
