I photographed Albie in 2008 when he was three, and this year I got to see him again as he now has a little brother (who is not quite so little)! Bandit is a one-year-old lab mix who was rescued from a neglectful owner who left the poor boy on a tie-down for most of his first year as a puppy. Now he is making up for lost time in his new home, where he can freely chase squirrels and chipmunks in his yard all day to his heart’s content thanks to the doggy door. He now has responsible owners who shower him with affection and a brother who adores him.
My pups would be so jealous of this backyard – squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits abound and keep the dogs entertained for hours. Bandit has even staked out different lookouts in the yard based on their vantage points. It’s always so great to see happy endings!
