Oh my goodness – I’ve been excited about this photo session for a very long time! Shayna is a gorgeous, sweet service dog living in San Diego, CA, and if you can believe it, she’s a rescue dog too! That’s right – a rescued service dog! You certainly don’t meet one of those every day! So I consider it an honor and a joy to know this beautiful girl… she’s gorgeous inside & out, so we knew we’d need to visit some equally gorgeous locations for her photo session, haha! We had a wonderful time walking around Balboa Park and Coronado Beach, and I think Shayna really enjoyed all the extra attention! :)
Shayna is one of those lucky dogs that gets to go to work with her mom – just like my dog Bailey! Shayna’s mom, Karen, is the owner of Interactive Healing, a highly-regarded massage/bodywork/rehabilitation center for both people and dogs! I can tell you from firsthand experience, she does incredible work, and Shayna does a great job of greeting all their clients, haha! If your dog has been getting stiff joints, or not walking quite right, or developing a limp, you’ll find that a visit to Karen & Shayna’s office will be super-informative and well worth your time.
Shayna’s a goofball at heart, but she puts on a good “serious face” when you show her a tennis ball! Seriously, when the ball comes out, she does not joke around! We’re talking laser-focus!
Oh my gosh, this pup is beautiful. Just look at that happy smile.
By the end of our session, Shayna’s tongue was permanently stuck hanging out of her mouth! Haha – running around the beach with her was so much fun!
Karen & Kimmy, I had a fantastic time with you both! Thank you for a ridiculously fun afternoon! :)
