Every year it's the same.....my New Year Resolution is that I'll drink more water and run 5 miles a day. Well, we all know that's not going to happen but I like to think it's the thought that counts!! What I will be doing this year though is taking more photos of my dogs Betty and Hector and I really do urge you to do the same with your pets.
The photo below is actually one of my favourite photos of Betty. Taken on the day we rescued her it was the first time she felt safe enough to come and take a treat from me. Now technically it's not a perfect photo but that really doesn't matter. I look back on it and all I see is how young and scared she was. It's something I often forget about as she is such a different dog now, but this image makes me smile and I'm so glad I have it. Just looking at it takes me back to that day and the happiness I felt.
There is a well used hashtag doing the rounds on social media at the moment which is #makingmemories and it's true!! Photographs make the most amazing memories and those fleeting moments in time with your dogs need to be captured. Doesn't matter if you use a fancy camera or your mobile phone! Just #makememories. This is what I will be doing more and more of with Betty and Hector in 2019 and beyond. I want to capture them at their craziest, woofiest and doing everything they love to do plus all those little things that are particular to each one of them.
It's true what they say, the only thing wrong with dogs is that they just don't live long enough so make sure you create those memories one way or the other. Give me a shout if you need a hand!
