Jack :: Humane Society of West Texas

I’m not usually one for little dogs, but this guy is too, too cute.  His name is Jack, and he is a chihuahua/miniature dachshund mix.  Jack was being fostered by one of my friends and fellow volunteers, and when she had to go out of town for a few days we agreed to keep him at our place.  He may have been a tiny dog, but he had a BIG personality.



He fit right in with the rest of the gang, in spite of being so much smaller than everyone else.  He did occasionally sleep on the bed, where he was a big fan of snuggling under the covers.    With a face that cute, how could you say no?



Two weeks after his visit with us, Jack was adopted by a wonderful young gal who was looking for a little dog to keep her company.  Last we heard, he was doing fantastic in his new forever home!

As it turns out, for those that may not have figured it out yet, I am a sucker.  Particularly for a hard luck story.  We had no sooner adopted out the two puppies we were fostering, than Gordon showed up.

This sweet fellow managed to survive the winter on his own here in Lubbock.  Another rescue group was aware of his situation and had been feeding him, and when one of our volunteers managed to catch him, we were asked to foster.  He started out terribly shy, but warmed up very quickly and has since made himself right at home sleeping on our bed when we’re not looking and wrestling with the rest of the crew.


His quarantine will be up next weekend and we are hoping we will be able to find him a fantastic forever home where he won’t ever have to worry about surviving the winter alone again.

Bella and Beckham

Bella and Beckham’s mom Susan contacted me prior to Christmas to see about scheduling a shoot for her two rescued Golden Retrievers.  The only problem?  Susan lives a long way from Lubbock!  Luckily she does not live too far from Austin, which is a city that I happen to LOVE.  And, Ken and I are always up for traveling to fun places so we thought we’d make it a long weekend in Austin and meet Susan while we were there.

It was obvious as soon as they got out of the car that Susan is head over heels in love with her two fur-kids.   And for good reason!  They are two of the happiest, sweetest dogs you could ever hope to meet.


That’s the beautiful Bella on the left, and her distinguished older brother Beckham on the right.    Beckham, who apparently loves to swim, took the opportunity of being off leash to plunge straight into the water.  He was clearly enjoying himself, though he did take the time to take a serious pose every now and again…







We had such a good time hanging out with Bella, Beckham, and their mom, and it was amazing to see what a bond the three of them have.  I hope we’ve done it justice!
