These portraits of a bride and her best dog, by Emily Nicole Photo are lovely. As is often the case, their story is just as beautiful. While some people might consider Ty, a Schnauzer mix, “less adoptable” since he has a physical limitation, it doesn’t keep him from being a star!
From Emily: “I was so excited when Sterling asked if she would bring her dog Ty along to her bridal session. He was a total ham!”
From Sterling: “His full name is Tiresias, but I call him Ty. Tiresias is the name of a blind prophet in Homer’s THE ODYSSEY, and as a theatre person that was the first name that came to mind when I realized Ty was blind. I found him in the parking lot of the apartment complex I was living at in college. Ty was matted as well as having patchy fur due to fleas.
I intended to keep him just until he found a forever home. But then, I realized his forever home was with me! Haha, he’s super sweet and cuddly but sometimes feisty and playful.
He’s a schnauzer/ terrier mix and might be three years old now. He’s been in two theatre plays and one short film!”
