[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]It began a while ago. The planning and plotting: Sage’s 2015 Calendar. Its an amazingly wonderful idea started a few years back by Aly and all in the name of raising money for charity. We had locations in mind, the make-up artist was hired (I need all the help I can get,) clothing was made (!) and the weather was booked (British.)

And then it began to get complicated. We all know that this will be Sage’s last – a girl has to retire gracefully. But, well, she took a turn for the worse. Hundreds of her fans, maybe even thousands have been willing her well. Sending her love and energy. Desperate to see this irrepressibly tough and gorgeous girl get well.

We changed plans. The word went out. It reminded me of the “Twilight Bark” in One Hundred and One Dalmations. Sage needed help – she couldn’t pull this one off on her own. Suddenly 1 became 3 became 6 became 9.

“Sage and Friends” was created!

She must have picked up on what was going on. Saturday morning came – perfectly drizzly and with soft soft light. She bounded at me as I opened the door. Sage was back! And here are some of the images to prove it.

We couldn’t have done it without everyone’s help. Thank you! Though the next time I have the idea of photographing 9 dogs in 15 minute slots one after the other…give me a bone and tell me to shut up!

The calendar will be coming very soon…but here is a very small selection of the images
