This is a photo of our dog Katy, taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5. I was experimenting with different effects and this was taken using a sparkly pink gauzy scarf over the lens to create a softer effect.
Katy is a 15 year old Jack Russell terrier cross Chihuahua. She was abandoned by travellers in 1998 and taken to a rescue centre. We rehomed her and she has been with us ever since.
We had only had her a couple of months when my toddler daughter escaped out the back garden of our new home. Katy stayed with her and when I realised she had gone, I found her (a few minutes later) with a man. He said he had been trying to hold my daughter’s hand to take her home, but Katy had not let him get near her.
She has always been a special dog to us.
