about heroes
lovejoy-4760.jpg

so here are my thoughts for today. 

i am grateful for, inspired and awed by those that spend every day working to make this a better world. those that advocate for children, for the sick, for the homeless and for the animals. so, this post is about heroes.

i am a very small part of the work that goes on in the world of animal rescue and honored to do so. what i do doesn't come close to those that leave the comfort of their homes on a regular basis and go out into the dark, into unfamiliar and sometimes dangerous places to save  animals  that are lost or injured, abandoned or neglected and bring them to safety and a return to wellness. these heroes sometimes spend days, weeks or months trying to find one dog they know is suffering, alone and scared and needs a chance to survive. these selfless heroes  get cold, and dirty and frustrated and sometimes even bitten, yet they go on. they don't give up.

once the task of recovery is completed, they make sure the animal gets food, water, medical attention and a warm bed to sleep in until they can find them a home. none of this comes easy or cheaply. the investment is great. they invest their time, their resources, their well-being and their loving hearts. they clean up the messes that others leave behind and they do so with selflessness and caring and they claim victory  when a scared, filthy, matted and smelly pup is safely in their vehicle, and, in spite of pain, fear, injury, that pup wags their tail as if  to say thank you. 

it takes a very special kind of person to work this kind of job for a tail wag. it takes a hero. and i am so proud of those that do this work. and i thank them. and i encourage anyone that loves animals to find some way to support your local rescue group and be a part of something that makes a difference. you, too, can be a hero. by donating, by volunteering, by fostering, even by sharing posts on social media to advocate for animals and against cruelty towards them. 

so, again, here's to the heroes! and, thank you!

A good blog

It's said by those who know, (and, how do they know?) that a good blog has certain features  contained within.

A good blog begins with a good title. A compelling and attractive title that will grab your audience and make them want to stay and read the rest of what you have to say.

Therefore, I have named this one, 'a good blog' ... it's compelling and  will grab my audience's attention.

Now that you're  here and ready to read on,  another element needed for a good blog is to address your specific audience. Easy enough. I'm a pet photographer and my intended audience has pets that need portraits.

Also, build trust and let the public know you're good at what you do ...  

Dear pet families ... I'm good at what I do.

There's other things involved,  like search engine optimization,  being informative and educational, and following up with a call to action. 

For your information, pets are part of the family There is scientific proof that pets are beneficial to a person's life.

Therefore, adopt a pet.

Then contact me to have a family portrait taken that you will treasure for years to come.

 

This is my dog, Hope. She and her big brother, Sam are the loves of my life. We all took a road trip yesterday out to the desert in Joshua Tree, Ca. and made some new memories. This photo is already printed and ready to go into a beautiful frame.
