Harry the Border Collie by Wet Nose Fotos

Well if this photo session wasn’t designed to steal my heart I don’t know what would! With fresh bursts of colour, amazing lighting and a beautiful face front and centre it had me at hello. Featuring little more than a pup of a Border Collie, this gorgeous session from Wet Nose Fotos is much more than a selection of pretty pictures. As you read the story below, you’ll find out this session is a testament to the unconditional love between a dog and his owner; and the never give up spirit of our furry friends.

From Shannon, Wet Nose Fotos:

He might be only 15 months old, but this gorgeous Border Collie knows how to work it! My client bought this session as a birthday gift for his girlfriend Lindsey {what a sweet guy, he’s going to be in the good books for quite a while now!}. I headed to our afternoon session location at Silvan Reservoir in the Yarra Valley, about 40km east of Melbourne, Victoria, which was glowing in the late light.

When I met this handsome young man I was amazed, he has THE fluffiest tail I’ve ever seen EVER! It’s absolutely gorgeous and for a Border Collie a little unexpected. Next up are those dreamy eyes . . . WOW. Yellow and piercing and he knows how to use them! Ok, ok, I may be a little smitten.

Harry was from the same father as Lindsey’s older border collie of 5 years, Milo. She got him from Kyneton, north-west of Melbourne and he was chosen because he was the best looking {no argument there!}. Lindsey got him the same time as her Mum, who chose his brother and called him Ollie.

Harry had a very troubled first 10 weeks of his life where he decided to drink half a litre of paint when his new owners were getting the house painted and he basically was ready to be put down. He lost so much weight he reached under 4kg (skin and bones). Poor Harry was in hospital for 4 whole weeks. One more day of losing weight and the vet was going to pull the plug.

After force-feeding him through a tube every single morning for 6 weeks, he started regaining weight and developed normally. Unfortunately he may have permanently kidney damaged but he’s absolutely perfect in his owner’s eyes.

In Lindsey’s boyfriend Paul’s own words –
“Harry is great because he is the total opposite to his brother; he is so affectionate and would never hurt a fly. He can run for hours on end and is kind to Charlie, my Scottish Terrier. They have never had a fight and can even share the one bone! Harry only went to 3 weeks of obedience training and he can sit, stay, roll over, shake and go through an obstacle course. Harry reminds me of my female border collie who lived for 19 human years. He is a big girl!“
