photographed April 14, 2018
Chase is one of the more unflappable of the sleddies I photographed for this project. "Stand in position? Sure thing!, Look into your camera? Love to! Can we spoon afterwards?"
Seriously - this guy loves to lay with you and be fawned over - he's all love.
But we found out what makes him nervous... it wasn't the camera, the unfamiliar location, the lights, the click of the shutter,,, it was a two-legged dog who came by. Chase took it all in stride.
As the 52nd sleddie photographed for this project, Chase makes the perfect bookend to ChiChi, the 1st sleddie photographed for this project. Two happy dogs who have endured things we can't even imagine - things we will never know. But their resilience and ability to trust humans is remarkable... and possible.
