shadow :: golden retriever :: joy session

14 year old Shadow came into the studio for her Joy Session with her family. Her boy carried her in because her back legs don’t work so well anymore. They grew up together, Shadow and her boy. You could feel the love and the sadness this family felt for their old girl, and that she felt for her family. I just love old Golden Retrievers…. their beautiful grey faces, their loyalty. You’re a good girl, Shadow.
