If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life. ~Pablo Neruda
Love comes in many forms, and one of my favorite types is the love between humans and dogs. Worzel, the Cocker Spaniel, and his favorite person have a very special connection. These photos from Bitsa Bernard Photography, capture that bond perfectly.
From Kirstie: “Having experienced first hand the positive impact our four-legged friends have on our well-being, I’m excited to introduce our new ‘Soulmates’ project, dedicated to capturing the irreplaceable bond between Adelaidians and the dogs who saved them.
Worzel came into Michelle’s life when she was in a bad place following a motorbike accident. The accident left her in chronic pain, with loss of job, loss of financial independence and living with her son.
Since Worzel arrived Michelle has lost 26kg so far, she is working full time, exercising and having fun again.”
From Michelle: “Worzel has been there, and he gets me up in the morning, he is always happy and is such a cuddle bug.
Worzel is always excited and wanting to do stuff, even if it’s gardening. He saved my life.”
Kirstie took so many great photos of Worzel and Michelle and created a wonderful video. Make sure to watch it, it could be the best three minutes of your day!
Although you probably have thousands of photos of your pet, I hope you’ll get some photos that show the unique relationship you share. If you need help finding a photographer, check our Photographers Directory.
