These sweet senior Jack Russell girls are both nearly deaf, but if their mom hadn’t told me I don’t think I would have known it! It can often be hard to catch and keep a deaf dog’s attention, but these girls were so in-tune and attentive to their mom. We thought they might be a little reluctant to have their afternoon naps interrupted, but once they realized there were treats involved, they started striking poses left and right. They also have one of the most beautiful backyards a photographer could ever dream of.
If all that weren’t enough to make this an amazing session, I was told that both of these girls were literally rescued from the streets. Lily was rescued just two years ago even though she was already ten years old – which makes her mom a hero in my book! Lily has the all-white face with the brown-tipped ears (left in the image below); Pippy is the older sister with more red in her face. (If you know these adorable girls, don’t tell their dad as these photos are going to be a surprise!)
