This is my babe Bowie. If you do not care to read a huge novel of how much I love my pup and our story, you might want to move on!
First B&W roll I have shot in a long time.
Kodak tmax 400. Any film photogs out there suggest a fave B&W brand they use?
SO, here I go. I adopted him August of 08' I think? I was going through some major changes and I felt that for whatever reason that day was THE day to go for it. My dad called me crazy, and I "forgot" to mention it with my room mate Natalie before stopping by the shelter randomly one day and coming home with this trip. The next day after I got him he was diagnosed with Parvo. If I had not gotten Bowie that day, the next day the pound would have put him down after discovering this (I had no idea he was sick when I adopted him). The vet told me he had a 50/50 chance of living, my heart was broken. A few days plugged into antibiotics away at the vet, he pulled through. He is the best irresponsible and spontaneous decision I have ever made. He was meant to be... timing was perfect for us both... we needed each other! (haha this is when Adam pukes). He is and was my greatest companion through my ruffest (get it ruff? yeah?) times. He had a few "issues" through the puppy years, but he has grown to be so obedient and great. It is always worth to get through those puppy years guys... I promise. PATIENCE! OKAY OKAY so MAYBE he still has one minor issue... that he has honestly submissively and over-excitably peed on everyone who has ever crossed his path.... but he is a pound pup guys! cut him some slack! I swear its a sign of admiration to all of you who have been a victim!
This is for you Dad and Natalie who love and understand Bowie, and love our pups as much as I do. The spirit and individual personality of each dog (and animals in general really) continue to amaze me, the comfort and friendship and undying love they provide us. This guy is ALWAYS happy to see me. It is just great. I love my dog, and every dog I have grown up with. In memory of Max and Jack... and our Rocky who is still with us. All so dear to my heart.
and yes, I AM the crazy dog lady. Think I care!?
