Sarah and Scout are a prime example as to how and why I began this whole pet photography journey. Much like myself and my own pups, they have a bond that really can't be put into words. You can try, for example, by explaining how it is that they met (Sarah was lonely in grad school, saw his photo on Pet Finder, and drove to southern Kentucky knowing full well he'd be making the journey back home with her). However, that doesn't explain the love and joy that is wound so tight around them as a pair. Only through watching them interact would you get the full sense of that bond. Scout is a bit skiddish at first. He quickly warms up, but don't think he's going to run up to you with big slobbery kisses right off the bat. It's clear upon first meeting that his number one priority to make sure he and Sarah safe. It's quite adorable, really. On the flip side, Sarah is patient. She knows his quirks and keeps him focused to calm him down. Before you know it, he's trotting beside her without a care in the world. If ever there was a love story between a girl and her dog, their story is it.
