Whatever kind of day you’re having, it is about to get better thanks to Rachel Craig Photography. Abita, the Boxer-Lab mix, and her favorite humans had a lovely session at the beach with Rachel.
From Rachel: “Kate and Cory have been married for five years and just added a new family member – Abita, a 9-month-old rescue pup.
They came from North Carolina to visit Charleston and enjoyed a film photography session during their stay.”
From Kate and Cory: “Abita came into our life as a 4-month-old puppy that we found on Craigslist while searching for a desk! We rehomed her from another family that wanted her to have the time and attention she deserved. We named her Abita Amber after our favorite Louisiana beer given her Amber colored coat. The former owners told us Abita was a Boxer-Lab mix, but many people have commented that she appears to have some Ridgeback in her as well.
Our little Abita loves to run and play outside. At the dog park, she will tap other dogs with her paw to make them chase her.
On the beach, she has sprinted for a half mile without rest to chase after birds, but only because she wanted to tell them hello. She loves nature and all the creatures and animals in it. Abita has been stung by wasps a few times for trying to befriend them, and we think she looks like the cutest version of Scooby Doo with her face all swollen after! Her sweet persona is immediately felt by everyone she meets.
She has a work hard play hard nature and her favorite tricks are high five and stick ’em up. Abita is very smart and uses buttons to communicate with us. She hits one button for food and water and another button when she is ready to go outside to potty. We are working on her patience though. She will keep hitting the outside button if we don’t jump up right away. It makes a “honk honk” sound, and after about eight honk honks in a row, we sometimes question why we taught it to her, to begin with (lol). Abita may be little, but her heart is big. She has brought our family nothing but joy, and we believe she has found the family she deserved. Abita may have been ‘free,’ but she is absolutely PRICELESS to us!”
