The life of Luna {story of a Tibetan Terrier}

Luna

As some of you may know, we already have a strikingly handsome and good looking two year old Tibetan Terrier called Alfie. He has recently been diagnosed with quite a rare illness called Symmetrical Lupoid Onychodystrophy which is an auto-immune disease where the body rejects the claws, resulting in painful and infected feet and means that the claws have to be removed and he is rattling with tablets. But it doesn’t affect his quality of life and he will be much more comfortable when his new, stronger claws grow through.

We hadn’t realised that he was quite so ill … we visited a breeder to think about reserving a puppy … and came home with Luna, a 15 month old Tibetan with a big attitude. She is too small to be a viable breeding dog and now she is sharing her life and adventures with us. At the beginning, because Alfie was poorly, they didn’t really get on too well but now that he is regaining his strength and we are going for walks together, things are settling down.

So I’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front but have been busy with family photoshoots, newborn shoots, surprise birthday parties, both for 40th and 80th celebrations, some beautiful vintage jewellery photography and wedding consultations too.

And, of course, photographing our new addition … can you see her hugely long eyelashes? One flutter of those and we were smitten. Tibetans have such long eyelashes to keep their hair out of their eyes.

How could you resist? We couldn’t …

And so our house is expanding … and becoming an exceptionally happy and fun place to be. If you are thinking of having an addition of the furry kind, do drop me an email sam@samanthajonesphotography.co.uk. Pets take such a great part of our hearts and are often overlooked when it comes to portrait shoots. Don’t “paws” for thought, drop me a line! I’ll also donate a percentage of the price of each photoshoot to a local animal rehoming centre based on the outskirts of Faversham which gives many animals a chance of a better life.
