Chloe is 14 years old today

Just a brief pause from wedding season . . . It all began August 17, 1995 — it seems like just yesterday that we brought home a little black fluff ball puppy. So cute! We never had a labrador retriever and let me tell you, she was a real initiation into the breed. Chloe is very strong willed and although we brought her to countless dog training sessions, she quickly learned how to train us. As the years went by, she mellowed out somewhat but she still to this day has her own opinion. She also just so happens to be the reason I pursued my interest in photography, which goes back many years. I am certain my first photography instructors, Mr. Rogers and Mr. Zak had their fill of seeing my doggy photos!

This was the day we went to the breeder’s house to bring Chloe home. I’ll always remember she was the little girl with the red ribbon around her neck. All of her collars since then have been red.

When Chloe was about a year and a half, we decided it would be nice for her to have a companion (besides us!). This was the photo that I took when we introduced Chloe to her little half-brother Cover. We weren’t quite sure how he would be received, after all, Chloe had been an only doggy up until this point, but they soon became best of buddys.

Photographs have enhanced many of my fondest memories. I am happy that we have the opportunity to do this for others as well.
