Back in 2012 i photographed Bonnie and David Casey's Pets, they had 3 cats and an old dog, two of the cats were pure breed persian's named Pepper and Billy, and a persian x russian blue named Beagle's their dog was a english bull terrier named ollie who since photographing her has sadly Passed away, these photos of her are now framed taking pride and place in their home!. We believe that its very important to have these memories to keep for years to come because a family pet in not just a pet they are a very important part of your family, they are just as important as your children and should be treated the same.
Meet Ollie, such a sweet gentle thing! i realised something during the time i new her, i had heard that these dogs were nasty and attacked people the same as the staffie and pit bull breeds and were made to be muzzled when taken for walks but i learnt that that is simply not true, for all the years of knowing this dog she never had a vicious bone in her body yet her breed is feared by most people. i am glad that i was lucky enough to know her and will remember all the good times she shared together, like the times we went camping! Ollie came too, she even came fishing with us, i remember evey time i came to visit she would greet me at the door with a few barks then her funny we grunt as she sniffed me.
R.I.P wee Ollie Dolly, you won't be in pain any more sweet heart rest easy :'(
I found this cat a few houses up from my grandparents place in Musselburgh just rubbing it selt on the concret so i picked up my camera and started to photograph it, he had the most amazing eyes i had even seen in a cat, i had heard that some white cats had two-toned eyes but i had never seen it it person before.
