My dearest friend Linda has two yellow lab service dogs….Sugar and Jesse. During a recent visit I took some photos of them together. The bond that exists between these three is completely inspiring.
Linda talks to “The Girls” as she would any other person, using full sentences and looking them in the eyes as she explains things to them. It is one of the reasons why they all share such an honest, endearing relationship….both Sugar and Jesse are absolutely vital members of this household of three.
I was able to capture a few remarkable moments between them, my favorite being the “Sugar Theresa” pose when Linda was drying off Sugar after her morning swim.
Daily swims in the family pool are almost as important as the towel-rub down that follows. Each girl has their private, rub-down time with mom, but it is gentle, wise and patient Sugar who dons the sacred towel as her athletic sister continues to chase pool toys until she drops.
