StarfireArizona's Profile Picture

United States
I am a retired professional wedding and portrait photographer, and now run both a wedding accessory and a photo restoration website. As you may be able to tell, I have 2 horses (this guy was only a year old for this shot....MUCH bigger now!!), and 6 dogs that are mostly rescues. An animal advocate to the core.....and am trying in include animals in my work as much as possible, especially those who are so misunderstood like pit bulls and wolves.

I have to laugh, although I would love to say that is the way I look now, I'd be lying!!  That picture was taken at least 20 yrs ago!!  So you know I don't look like that anymore, age is doing it's thing!!! But thank you so much for the compliment!  I have just one dog now, Pepper, who is a rescue dog too. Actually all my dogs have always been rescue dogs. Thanks again!!!

I know how you feel Cathy.....my avatar with my 1 year old horse....of whom is 7 years old now and MUCH bigger!....I would give anything to even look as I did then  lol  But hey.....we deserve to age gracefully :)

I never realized until the past few years how many dogs/puppies and cats/kittens die in shelters.  Now that I know I will never ever look for a pet anywhere else.....

I'm right there with you, so many poor animals with no love, I get an older dog too, because most want puppies. My dog now is 9 yrs old and we have had her for a year. She is such a wonderful. loving dog. My hope is to age gracefully, I know I'm aging, it's the graceful part I'm not sure about!!:)

Animals have no control over what happens to them....and when they end up in a bad situation it breaks my heart.  There is a big movement starting in this country for a no kill nation....to end needless shelter killing.  In fact unless I am mistaken, Phoenix does not allow pet sales unless they are shelter pets.  Saw a large pet store in a mall last week that were shelter dogs and cats.  Wonderful!!!  Now we just have to eliminate it nation/world wide!!  Sadly not in my lifetime :(  Did you ever see my piece dedicated to this:  fav.me/d74mguq

Graceful aging.....beginning to think it is only for the affluent who have massage and health coaches on staff  lol
