The Harris Household {Kentucky Pet Photographer} — Nashville Canine Photographer


    I’m very excited for right this moment’s weblog AND it’s a two parter!  That is severely one among my favourite shoots to this point, and I keep in mind it effectively!  I used to be 8 months pregnant on the time, and drove a couple of hours to this pretty couple’s farm in Maceo, Kentucky.  They not solely had canine for me to {photograph}, however additionally they horses and beta fish.  I grew up with horses and felt proper at dwelling with theirs.  

    As soon as Sherri and Jeff had been married, they knew they needed to purchase a small farm and construct a farmhouse.  They’ve 40 acres in Kentucky and name themselves “gents farmers” (so enjoyable!).  “We’re a bit like Inexperienced Acres however with extra animals,” Sherri informed me.  They all the time rescue after they can and nonetheless foster. 

    For half one among this weblog, I wish to introduce you to the Harris’ canine.  With every pup they’ve stored their unique identify or a variation of that identify. Every one among them has a singular story as to how they got here to be part of the Harris pack.  Ages are guesses as a result of they had been all adopted as younger adults. 

     Huckleberry, a full blooded bluetick hound, is about ten.  Sherri loves this breed and located Huck on Petfinder in Alabama after dropping one other bluetick to most cancers.  Sadly, he was already promised to a different household.  Sherri didn’t surrender on him and known as the shelter per week later.  The household by no means picked him up and he was scheduled to be euthanized throughout the hour!  Sherri paid for him over the cellphone and located a option to get him. 

    Gracie, brief for Princess Grace of Maceo, is round six or seven years outdated.  She is a foster fail from their native rescue known as Saving Paws Animal Rescue of KY (SPARKY).  She is usually Chihuahua and although Sherri had by no means deliberate on proudly owning a Chihuahua, as soon as they fostered her they fell in love and adopted her.  What makes Gracie actually particular?  She is a tripod!  The little girl had been hit by a automobile which required her entrance leg to be amputated on the shoulder. She runs and jumps as if she has no concept she is a tripod. She is the glue for the canine pack that makes certain everybody performs.  

    The Harris’ subsequent pup is Butters (previously Totally).  She is between six and eight.  She is a stocky mixture of a number of issues per her canine genetic check.  Sherri and Jeff fostered her after she was present in somebody’s carport and given to Robyn’s Nest, a rescue in Nashville.  Butters had a number of fears and points at first, and it was onerous to maintain her protected from herself.  Sherri and Jeff felt they’d do a greater job than most, in order that they adopted her.  Butters is fortunate to have them.  The Pet Neighborhood Middle who did her spay came upon she had survived being shot AND hit by a automobile!  

    And final however not least, Darla is a six 12 months outdated hound. She was a Metro Animal Care and Management (MACC) canine.  Sherri bought her as a short-term foster throughout a Bow Wow Breakout held by MACC. She requested for a canine that was ignored and ther’re the longest they usually confirmed her Darla.  After spending an extended Breakout weekend collectively, Sherri tried to get somebody to undertake her on social media, however no takers.  Sherri had to return for her. She is hilarious and maintains her job of chief mole hunter as a severe mission, usually digging up vegetation and making big holes of their yard!

    The fish is a male Beta named Steven Tyler, who sadly is not with us.  Nonetheless, Sherri did inform me they bought one other Beta that appears identical to Steven Tyler and named him JT (Justin Timberlake).  I really like their fish names!
