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


I’m very excited for right now’s weblog AND it’s a two parter!  That is critically one in every of my favourite shoots so far, and I bear in mind it properly!  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 canines 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 wished 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 at all times rescue once they can and nonetheless foster. 

For half one in every of this weblog, I need to introduce you to the Harris’ canines.  With every pup they’ve stored their unique title or a variation of that title. Every one in every of 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 quit on him and referred to as the shelter every 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 telephone and located a option to get him. 

Gracie, quick for Princess Grace of Maceo, is round six or seven years previous.  She is a foster fail from their native rescue referred to 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 Completely).  She is between six and eight.  She is a stocky mixture of lots 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 lots of fears and points at first, and it was exhausting 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 Group Middle who did her spay discovered she had survived being shot AND hit by a automobile!  

And final however not least, Darla is a six yr previous hound. She was a Metro Animal Care and Management (MACC) canine.  Sherri received 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 and so they confirmed her Darla.  After spending a protracted 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 critical mission, typically digging up vegetation and making big holes of their yard!

The fish is a male Betta named Steven Tyler, who sadly is now not with us.  Nonetheless, Sherri did inform me they received one other Betta that appears similar to Steven Tyler and named him JT (Justin Timberlake).  I like their fish names!
Be on the look out for Half 2, the all their horses, subsequent week!
