On the blog this week is an adorable family session with Stacey and Armando and their sweet black lab, Seve! I had so much fun taking their portraits at their new home in a beautiful new neighborhood where every street has a farm animal name!
Seve is a little over 3 years old and has quite a unique story! One of Stacey's friends worked at Murphy Road Animal Hospital and when a puppy came into the clinic with swimmers syndrome (a difficult scenario that often requires lots of physical therapy to overcome), a woman who overheard the situation asked that they call her before deciding to put the dog down. Long story short, she rescued him and with the help of her friends and a physical therapist, he was able to retrain his muscles and become healthy. When she could no longer keep him, Stacey and Armando brought him home and he's been there ever since!
Seve is named after the famous Spanish golfer. Seve (the golfer) was known for being a fighter, too, so it fit with the puppy's saucy personality and his backstory very well!
Seve absolutely loves food and playing chase, although he isn't much a fan of kids or flea medicine time. Stacey's favorite thing about him is how much he enjoys going with her on car rides and she loves that black labs are smart, loyal and easy to train.
I'm sure you'll fall in love with his charming smile! Just take a look at some of my favorites below!
