Happy Friday! I love a bride who includes her dog in the wedding. Erika Brown Photography had the pleasure of photographing a very special wedding that included Oliver, the ring bearer.
From Meggie: “Oliver is a Chocolate lab and will be 3 years old in November. I met Oliver when he was 4 months old by answering a ‘free to a good home’ ad on Craigslist while I was in graduate school. He was found wandering the roads of a neighborhood and rescued by a kind woman who was not able to keep him. I train therapy dogs and am very picky about the personality of the dogs that I rescue. I was hesitant about Oliver at first because, on the day I met him, he stole the last slice of gourmet pizza off the table right in front of me!!! I agreed to keep him overnight as a ‘test run’ and, during the span of 8 hours, he completely won me over and I have never looked back. He is incredibly calm and even-tempered. In fact, during his training, he accompanied me to my classes in graduate school. I actually had a professor ask me if there was something wrong with him because he was so very calm for such a young dog! He has served as a therapy dog while I was in graduate school studying Clinical Psychology and helped a couple of children overcome their fear of canines during exposure therapy sessions. He never ceases to make me laugh on even the most somber occasions. And THAT is more than I could ever ask for in a companion.”
