52 Portraits Project Review

I found out about the 52 Portrait Project almost at the same time we welcomed our first dog home. Naturally, I thought Newton would be the perfect subject to capture during the year. I've wanted to a dog for the longest time but the time never seemed right for whatever reason. During the past two years, I was determined to get one and event started volunteering at a the local humane society to get used to the idea, while doing something good in the community. Finally the day came when we got an opportunity to adopt an italian greyhound. I wasn't familiar with this breed at the time, but it seem to fit our lifestyle so we jumped at the occasion and were matched with this smart little puppy.

It's crazy to see how much he's grown. I can't believe he's already going to be 1 year old next month. He's got such an amazing personality and been such a great addition in our lives, opening new doors and giving us new perspectives on life. I knew it was going to be great bring a dog in our lives, but never imagined how much he would add to it.

  1. Dogs are clowns who make our lives more interesting. I have 2 Wirehair Dachshunds from Italy and they both have quite individual personalities. A friend in Texas said to me that they live in Paradise and do not know it. I agree with you about the First World Dog problems. Your breed of dog was the favourite of Frederick II the Great of Prussia, he is buried, at his request, with 8 of them at Sans Souci.

    1. Hi Laurent. They are funny indeed and add so much to the day to day life. I never realize how much personalities they could have. Wirehair Dachshunds are adorable!
