Memory: Baby Fergie at the Seattle Center

Memory: Baby Fergie at the Seattle Center

Some of my earliest memories from my time with you Fergie was when we walked the grounds of the Seattle Center, and you swam in the fountain pool. We took many pictures there, when you were a baby, and for my book cover, and for workshops, etc. It was clear to me from the very beginning that your life before me had been lived in isolation. You had almost no experience with the outside world, and I pictured you formerly…

Memory: rolling in grass all over the U.S.

Memory: rolling in grass all over the U.S.

Fergie do you remember how, whenever you were really really happy, you’d stop, drop and roll in whatever grass was closest to you? It didn’t matter where it was, or when it was, you’d just go for it with the same kind of abandon you approached everything in life. You rolled in your back in grass all over the U.S. These are just some of the photos from your happy back-rolling experiences, and I did my best to recall where…

Memory: chomping water from the hose

Memory: chomping water from the hose

One of your very very favorite things to do was chomp on water from the hose. You were downright obsessed with doing this! You got to enjoy this past time at every house we lived in, from Washington to California. Even when you were very weak and sick and skinny toward the end of your life, you still had so much fun chomping on water from the hose. And I’d giggle endlessly just watching you. I hope you are chomping…

Memory: Lincoln Park

Memory: Lincoln Park

One of our weekly rituals when we lived in West Seattle was to have long walks in Lincoln Park . We’d often stop at Starbucks on the way so I could pick up a latte for me and a puppacino for you. We’d park in the upper parking lot and hike all the way down to the beach. We’d then walk along the beach before making the long trek back to the car. Sometimes we’d go in the evening and…

Memory: Fergie with graffiti

Memory: Fergie with graffiti

One of the things I loved so much about being a pet photographer was being able to include you in my personal projects. The first big project I did was my Graffiti Dogs Project that I started back in 2008, and you were one of the first dogs I photographed for it. You looked so amazing against graffiti, and I some of the photos from those shoots became my all-time favorites. From 2008-2013 we shot in Georgetown, SODO, SLU, lower…

Memory: Ferry Rides

Memory: Ferry Rides

Dear Fergie. Do you remember when you were very young and I took you to Whidbey Island? Of course you do! You helped me retrieve this memory. Remember standing at the front of the ferry, and sitting in the car as we sailed across the bay? Remember sticking your head through the hole on the side of the Ferry so you could look out and sniff all of the wonderful smells of the sea? Remember how excited you were to…
