Welcome to the next instalment of Dog Tails. When clients visit us for studio pet portraits, they often recount the stories of their dogs lives. With each dog being different, so is each story. Some are happy tales, some inspiring, some sad, but each one ends with love as their dog subjects find a place and person to call their own.

In July 2015 we had a visit from Ariane and James with 4 year old Greyhound, Gordon.

Ariane shares his story with us.

“We adopted Gordon about 12 months ago and he has taken to his new life of leisure with gusto. He was transitioned from a racer to a chilled couch potato and he has become an integral member of our small inner city dwelling.

Gordo is a serial shoe giver. He cannot and will not greet anyone at the door without a shoe in his mouth. Many shoes have become ‘sacrificial shoes’ i.e. Gordons property, however he still likes to find the best and newest shoe possible to bring to the door.

Recently he has started greeting passers by over the fence and often dropping said shoe over the fence onto the pavement. Thanks Gordo.
