Dog Person of the Day: Vanessa and Luna

dog people

This Dog Person of the Day needs no real introduction. When it came time to cast for the Dog People project, photographing my wife Vanessa and our dog Luna was a no-brainer. When it comes to loyalty Luna ranks in the number one position. She’s always by our side and is most anxious to greet us when we return home. Almost eleven years old, Luna still has the energy and spunk of a young puppy. We often hear from others that they can’t believe how old she is. It may be due to the fact that she gets so much exercise by doing her favorite thing in the world, chasing and retrieving a tennis ball. We often take her to the local dog park where she runs until her heart’s content (or eventually is just too dang tired). I’m certainly proud to be her Dad. So now a little Q&A with her Mom and the love of my life Vanessa…
