Medeek is a handicapped shepherd/rotty cross, who can lick you to death. What a lovely personality he has. His owner, Lisa, asked me to photograph Medeek and his little girlfriend Cossette. Medeek is handicapped due to an infection in his spine from a year or so ago. By the time it was recognized what was going on, Medeek was more or less paralyzed in his lower body part and cannot walk on his own. So Lisa is helping him along with a harness. This does not impact Medeek's happiness and his absolutely lovely disposition. And Cossette's enthusiasm and speed makes up for Medeek's inability to move around on his own.
There is something about Medeek's calm and composed personality that is really touching. He is the first one who wants to slip off the sofa to greet you at the door and when you settle down with him, he so gratefully licks your hand. What a wonderful guy.
Cossette, in the meantime, is happiest when she is running through the park next to Lisa's home. She just ran in wide circles as if she had never been outdoors. What a little clown!!!
It was so much fun to photograph these two and a great honor to meet them. Thanks Lisa!
