SYDNEY’S STORY

Woof Creative Photography is one of our #partnerswelove .. this is Sydney's love story in the making...

"I got to do a shoot with a wonderful dog this morning!

Driving to meet Sydney, I began to think about my style of photography and how I most love to capture how the dog and her human feel about each other. It made me sad to think that Sydney doesn't have a human to call her own. What she DOES have is a survivor's story, (which will be featured in the next issue of Unleash Jacksonville) and the love of Kelly Krehbiel, who brought Sydney into Fur Sisters - Furever Urs Rescue, Inc without a second thought after she and her puppies were found living under a house. Sydney was the target of abuse and ended up having one of her eyes rot out.

I was sad to think Sydney would be alone in her photos, with no one looking at her adoringly. But she is very loved in Kelly's arms. She is beautiful. She feels safe. Now we just need to find her a family. Man, they'll be lucky!

Please contact Fur Sisters - Furever Urs Rescue, Inc to learn how to make your beautiful life with Sydney—I'm looking forward to doing an updated photoshoot with her human(s)—for free!"

REMI’S STORY

“There will always be that dog that no dog will replace, that dog that will make you cry even when it’s been gone more years than it could have ever lived.” (MD ‘The gift of a great dog’)

"I lost my heart dog after a two-year fight with lymphoma. But this is about beginnings… Remi was a black dog not doing well in a rural shelter. Fur Sisters stepped up and gave her the break she needed. She had two failed fosters and was back in boarding needing a savior. So why not me?

Remi was on kitchen counters, sailing over couches, digging, chasing cars, jumping on people and scaring the crap out of anyone on a bicycle. She was a disaster! There was no way anyone was going to adopt her. Luke hadn’t been home all week, but Thursday night he got to experience our new foster first-hand. That night he slept on the couch with her and Remi was immediately smitten. We sent our unruly foster to training the next day at Jet Set Pets. She came home a few weeks later a manageable dog! Luke worked with her every day for a few more weeks and Remi was finally ready for her first adoption event.

I vividly remember watching Luke take her into the yard at Brewhound and her looking at him like he was the only one in the park. With the grin on his face, I knew he found his heart dog. When we left that night, he asked if we could talk about keeping Remi. My heart was still shattered from losing Max. I wasn’t ready for a new family member.

A week later, Remi was headed back down to Brewhound for a meeting with potential adopters. Luke was furious that I wouldn’t even discuss keeping Remi and I was forcing him to participate. “It’s not fair that you’re going to deny me experiencing with Remi what you had with Max!” Words true enough I had to choke back tears. I don’t think anyone should be denied the privileged experience of a heart dog.

We arrived and Kelly from Fur Sisters asked Luke to fill out some information on Remi that might help the adopters. He took the pen, likely cussing me out under his breath, and started to read the questions:

  1. Would you love Remi forever?

    He shot me a dirty look.

  2. We hope you answered yes because she is yours forever!

Tears welled up in his eyes as confusion became understanding that this “adoption meet and greet” was all for him. Remi knew, because in that moment she jumped on him frantically kissing him… and wouldn’t you know it but there just so happened to be a photographer handy (thank you Layla Neal)!

I love dogs. I’ve loved all my dogs deeply. But I think you only get one heart dog. And I’m so grateful that Luke found his.
