    We adopted Sassy from the local shelter. My daughter was deathly afraid of dogs and I thought it would be a good idea to get her used to them. Little did I know my daughter would lock herself in her room when Sassy showed up. She stayed locked in her room for almost a month, I was ready to break and take the dog back to the original foster family when there was suddenly a breakthrough...my daughter emerged. She quickly realized Sassy was sweet and now every waking minute, these two are together!

    The wind is everything in this image - I can feel the truck moving down the road and the girl's blowing hair gives an energetic and fun connection between the two subjects. I love how the dog is leaning into her hair despite how hectic it may feel to have all that blowing in your face! True love.
