Growing up, my family always had a dog. There is actually not a single moment of my childhood when there wasn't a dog in our home. And while we always had a dog, we also stuck with the same breed for all of my growing up years. That breed was the German Shepherd Dog. I have many sweet memories of the German Shepherds we had through out my life. As a matter of fact, my son is named for my first family German Shepherd; Benjamin. So, whenever a German Shepherd comes into my studio, my heart skips a beat while a flood of childhood memories come rushing to my brain.
Bethany first contacted me through text, about a portrait session for her GSD puppy. One of my first questions of clients inquiring is; "What is your dog's name?" I asked this question of Bethany, and she responded that her pup's name was, "Pond."
Well, right then and there I knew we were going to get along like peas and carrots! As an avid and long time Doctor Who fan, I immediately knew where Pond got her name. Amy Pond is my second favorite Doctor Who companion. This family definitely has great taste in dog names!
