Rio & Rags ~ {Pensacola Pet Photography by Allison Shamrell}

It’s hard for me to come up with the words to write for this blog post. Rio might be a familiar face to many of you, since I photographed him and his brother, Buford, back in January of this year. Buford was 14 years old at the time (if my memory serves me), and sadly, he couldn’t join us for this session. But Rio was happy to see me again – oh, wait, he’s happy to see everyone. I’ve kept up with his antics (too many of which involve leg surgeries!) through his mom, Lori. She’s a wonderful dog-mom and is more than a client to me; she’s a friend, and if there’s a more wonderful part of running a photography business than having clients turn into friends, I don’t know what it is.


But anyways, I hope you enjoy these photos! Rio was happy to be there, as he’s happy to go anywhere – especially the vet! Ha!






And this little snaggletooth is Rags! Rags is Lori’s parents’ dog – so does that make him Rio’s uncle?





Someone decided to take a sand bath.



Oh yes, Lori. Yes I did.

It was a pleasure and an honor, as always, Lori. Talk to you soon!

    I LOVE THEM!!! Well, most of them hahaha (actually, that is an awesome pic of my life with Rio – expect the unexpected and be ready to laugh. I love it!).
    I’m so excited! (and one more exclamation mark for good measure.. ! )

  2. […] and not a large, open outdoor space, since I know that’s where he’s more comfortable. (See their previous session in the great outdoors here.)  They both kept us laughing the whole time, but we got them to pose perfectly with the treat […]

  3. […] I’m not going to stop. I can’t imagine what I’d be going through if this was Rio – I’m doing everything I’d want someone to do for him.” So clearly, these […]
