I have another beautiful, feel-good photo to share with you today from one of my all time favorite photographers, Kirstie Tweed from Orange Girl Photographs. Visiting the Orange Girl Photographs blog is always a treat, even when there isn’t a dog, but when I saw this little guy I definitely squealed. Can you blame me?
From Michelle: “Poncho arrived in Calgary one snowy night in November 2009. It was his first taste of winter after coming to Canada from Mexico. Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation learned of Poncho, among other dogs, from a shelter in Cancun where had been left by people who no longer wanted him. His ribs were showing and he had rashes on his body from neglect. Luckily a couple in Calgary had been considering fostering a dog and took him in “just until they could find him a forever home”. It didn’t take long for them to fall in love with Poncho and they adopted him a month later. He immediately loved to snuggle with his new mom but was initially scared of men. After a little practise he has learned to trust most men and absolutely loves his new family. When he’s not chasing a squeaky toy, Poncho will be found cuddling in someones lap, or sleeping between his parent’s pillows. He has also grown accustomed to winter as you can see by how comfortable he looks in mid-February during his ‘mom’ and ‘dad’s’ wedding in Canmore, Alberta.”
Normally I only feature one image on Fridays, but this week I simply have to share two!
