I did the most adorable dog photoshoot at Arcadia when I took photos of Papi and Artie.
Papi is a Jack Russel x Whippent and he is really smart 🤓 Emma his owner friend thought him so many tricks and he sure is a perfect family member.
These are my favourite photos of him. We've got some cool light and he really did such a great job modelling.
Papi's friend Artie is a rescued, ex racing, beautiful Grayhound.
Do you know what the racing involves for these beautiful Grayhounds⁉️
Before the photo sessions with Emma, I didn't know much about dog racing.
Now I wish people would understand what these poor dogs going through.
These dogs are running to catch an artificial lure. They normally race twice a week and the rest of their time they rest in a cage. 😢
The owner doesn't care if they have a broken toe, they let them run anyways.
What kind of a life is this?
Thanks God, Artie has a loving family now. ❤️
