I take portraits of dogs at my local rescues and I see what a dog can do for someone who is getting up there in age. One of my closest friends was 73 years old and her husband had recently passed. After some convincing I got her to adopt the sweetest German Shepherd. That dog changed her life. She gave her a reason to wake up in the morning. It gave her a schedule. Somebody to walk with. And most importantly someone to love. That dog helped my friend through 8 different cancers and helped keep her spirits high even on the worst days. In 2020 I will capture that love and help show the world how amazing rescue pets can be, especially to our senior citizens.
